English term or phrase: tip burn in
Context:
How would you use the storage bins to verify tool conditions after tip dress operation?
Develop a tip burn in schedule after the robot does a tip dress. In this example, storage bin 80 is set for data of tip-to-tip condition after a tip dress.

English translation:tip conditioning
Explanation:
My interpretation:

After the welding electrodes are ground to restore the proper shape (tip dressing), they must be used briefly for 'scrap' welding to condition them for production use. This is necessary to remove rough edges (burr) left by the grinding process, and possibly also so give the tips a smoother surface. This conditioning process is called burn-in.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Polangmar: It's the grinding process which is to remove any irregularities in the shape of the tip. Tool condition probably means its capacity to conduct current (tip-to-tip c. - when tips are "shorted", to determine max. current available, after a tip dress here).
