The parameter defined as ‘rake angle'—combining the shape of the wheel-dressing diamond with its orientation—has been introduced in conjunction with other associated dressing variables, such as the depth of cut and traverse rate, into an evaluation of the dressing process, and its subsequent influence on both rough and finish cylindrical traverse grinding. With the object of minimizing diamond wear, due to the high cost of dressing diamonds, the nature and magnitude of the components of the dressing force have been recorded by means of a three-component strain gauge-type dynamometer and Ultra Violet recorder. A linear relationship was established between the radial component of force on the diamond, and the amount of diamond wear.
