Using a Potentiostat to Model In-Process Electromechanical Dressing



Robert S. Polvani, A Fraker, Christopher J. Evans


In-process electrochemical dressing insures true, sharp, stable wheels for efficient ceramic grinding. To better implement electrochemical dressing, we couple laboratory studies based on a potentiostat with shop floor grinding runs. To do this, a calomel reference electrode was added to the grinding spindle dressing head. The potentiostat is proving an effective means for screening materials, selecting dressing head running values, but most importantly, for developing a basic understanding of electrochemical dressing.
