Dressing Sticks

In glass grinding, DRESSING STICKS are used at various intervals during the life of the diamond wheel or drill for re-exposing the diamonds of the diamond tool. It helps in optimizing glass edge quality and tool feed speed.

The diamond-bond matrix consists of randomly dispersed diamond particles held in a metal bond. As the diamond particles are worked on during the grinding operation, they wear and lose their cutting power by flattening off at the top exposed edge, a phenomenon termed as glazing.

However, the bond wear may not be at the same rate as the diamond. If the bond wear is slower than the diamond wear, this will reduce the diamond exposure and the grinding capability. A relatively soft abrasive DRESSING STICK , such as Aluminum Oxide is required to grind away the bond and give greater exposure to the diamonds.

SUPERCUT Aluminum Oxide DRESSING STICKS are designed with a structure and hardness resulting in superior dressing performance:

• Aggressiveness in stock removal thereby reducing cycle time and increasing through-put
• Lower diamond tool wear resulting in increased overall life of a diamond wheel or drill.

SUPERCUT DRESSING STICKS are offered in 150 and 220 mesh.
