Rush Machinery introduces the Truing Parameters Calculator for truing and dressing Diamond and CBN Wheels. The Truing Parameters Calculator recommends the proper dressing wheels and wheel speeds to optimize the truing and dressing process. It is now available on our website here: https://rushmachinery.com/truing-parameters-calculator/.
A demo will be available at the Eastec trade show May 16–18, 2023 in West Springfield, MA at the Eastern States Exposition. Rush Machinery can be found in Booth #1121.
The Truing Parameters Calculator is the result of a 3-year collaboration between Rush Machinery, the International Grinding Institute, and Dr. Jeffrey Badger, the ‘Grinding Doc’. Rush Machinery commissioned the project that was later presented at the 2008 CIRP General Assembly in Tokyo by Dražumerič, Badger, Klement, and Krajnik titled “Truing of Diamond Wheels–Geometry, Kinematics and Removal Mechanisms,” published in the CIRP Annals, volume 57, pages 345-348.

- cubic boron nitride ( CBN)
cubic boron nitride ( CBN)
Crystal manufactured from boron nitride under high pressure and temperature. Used to cut hard-to-machine ferrous and nickel-base materials up to 70 HRC. Second hardest material after diamond. See superabrasive tools.
Removal of undesirable materials from “loaded” grinding wheels using a single- or multi-point diamond or other tool. The process also exposes unused, sharp abrasive points. See loading; truing.
Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
Using a diamond or other dressing tool to ensure that a grinding wheel is round and concentric and will not vibrate at required speeds. Weights also are used to balance the wheel. Also performed to impart a contour to the wheel’s face. See dressing.
