An investigation is described of the effects of rotary dressing on grinding wheel performance. Grinding performance is evaluated mainly in terms of the grinding forces and surface finish. It is demonstrated that the magnitudes of the grinding forces can be attributed to differences in the size of the wear flat area obtained by the various rotary dressing conditions. For finer dresser infeeds and greater differences between the peripheral velocities of the dresser and the grinding wheel, bigger grinding forces and smoother surfaces are obtained. A direct relationship is obtained between the grinding performance and the dressing interference angle, a larger angle resulting in smaller grinding forces and rougher surfaces. This leads to a trade-off relationship between grinding forces and surface roughness which characterizes the rotary dressing process.
