Automatic Work Wheel Dressing

Current Process

Hydraulic dress cycles require high operator input reducing their efficiency. The traverse rate of the dressing tool is difficult to establish affecting surface quality. Inconsistent dressing of the work wheel reduces machine efficiency and can lead to higher scrap rates.


Develop a process to dress the regulating and work wheel that improves operator and machine efficiencies, improves control of the traverse rate, maintains a high-quality part, and reduces scrap rates.

Solution: Automatic Work Wheel Dressing. Available on all of Glebar’s TF-9DHD and GT-610 machines.

An operator can initiate the automatic dressing cycle from the HMI leaving them free to perform other tasks. The frequency of dress can be preprogrammed to automatically refresh grinding wheels after a set number of cycles or time, maintaining a consistent grind and a high-quality surface finish. Available with either manual quill advance or motor-driven quill advancement
