Additional field(s): Manufacturing
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.

Example sentence(s):
  • 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
