English term or phrase:truing
Definition from Abrasive Engineering Society: A process to correct the concentricity and shape of a grinding wheel. As distinguished from dressing, which removes bond material to expose fresh abrasive grains, truing is designed to reduce vibration and produce a uniform cutting rate for the grinding wheel.
Truing and grinding forces and the wear mechanism of particle and rod diamond blade tools used to generate precise and intricate forms on rotating vitreous bond silicon carbide grinding wheels are presented. Science direct
Once a major stumbling block to the efficient use of superabrasive production wheels, truing and dressing have come of age with the introduction of new tools, techniques and methods, including modular devices that automate the processes. bnet
Manufacturers have found rotary dressing and truing to be superior to single point, cluster and stick dressing for processes that require high part production and/or close part tolerances. G II Solutions, Inc
Although truing is an ancient practice carried out almost daily the arabic technical vocabulary is very poor in spcifying a valid arabic term for this particular process(truing) . one would notice also that each and every arab country has it`s own terminology,which makes it difficult to produce a unified term that would satisfy all arabic speaking nations,plus the fact that most of the web translations of technical terms look not only funny but misleading (an example is the word تضبيط which is so vague in describing this technicaly sensitive word (truing) True, it might be a form of تضبيط in the general sense but could not be taken seriously for glossary building apurposes.

Definition from Wikipedia: A wheel truing stand is a specialized tool for straightening bicycle wheels. While individual models differ slightly, it consists of an axle stand on which the wheel can rotate and calipers, to measure slight deviations of the wheel's rim from ideal ("true") alignment. The stand is used in conjunction with an appropriately sized spoke wrench to loosen & tighten spokes that hold the rim in position.
Wheel truing is a delicate procedure that requires time and patience. - bicycletutor
