Read out the dos and don'ts of diamond dressing tools to optimize their performance!
Diamond dressing tools are now increasingly used in enterprising ambiences around the world for material removing applications of entire diversity. Diamond hardness and its wear resistance are the reasons that make the diamond tools so effective and desirable. The bonding material and technique used in diamond tools is equally important and determines the rate at which the new surface of diamond grains is exposed, which also establishes the wear resistance of the diamond tool surface. Diamond tools deliver high impact and the force of cutting/grinding is optimized thus ensuring efficiency; while the resonant choice of bonding keeps the diamond grains intact for longer time thus generating economy for the user.
Diamond dressing tools however require certain precautions and work etiquettes to maximize the value. The user therefore has to be skilled and must take care of certain dos and don’ts; if the best efficiency and value is to be ensured. Here are some important points that need consideration while using the diamond dressers. Have a look -
Dressing and truing tasks of the wheel are very important to maintain consistency!
Diamonds dressing tools themselves require dressing from time to time. Truing and dressing are the specific actions that are done with set of high precision diamond blades and other tools. Truing and dressing refers to the tasks that are aimed at ensuring perfection at the surface of the diamond dresser to cause uniformity in the exposure of diamond grains. This is done to maintain the high performance of the diamond dresser.
Burn marks cause denaturing of surface
Burn marks are formed on the substrate surface by the friction of the particles that get trapped in the pores of diamond dressing tool surface. These particles reach there through material removal process taken up with that specific tool. It is therefore essential to remove these particles from time to time.
Vibration generates imperfections
Vibration needs to be minimized during dressing process; or else it will generate imperfections on the substrate surface. The tool itself can suffer due to vibration, if it is not secured to the ground or support.
Wheel loading - timely cleaning is required!
The particles that get trapped in the pores of diamond dresser's surface can overload the dressing wheel and this causes lags and inefficiency. Therefore it is important to remove these particles and keep the dressing wheel in optimized performance state. Vibrations may also develop through the alien particles.
Maintain balance while undertaking the cutting task!
The user needs to exercise caution and balance while undertaking cutting with diamond tool. It is usually very tempting to deliver sharp and deeper cuts at first attempt; but this methods is faulty, say the experts! The dresser suffers badly through deep cuts. Instead, the user should try to go slow, removing little bit each time.
Keep the core cool to maintain efficiency and reduce wear!
The core of the diamond dresser tools should be maintained cool through the use of coolant. The efficiency is maximized while the durability of the tool is also increased.
With these precautions and counsels, the efficiency is definitely increased and economy is ensured to the fullest!
