High accuracy with consort precision diamond

Reverse Plated Dressers

Reverse Plated Dressers are selected where high accuracy of profile detail is required together with a correspondingly high quality surface finish on the component.

Accuracy is achieved by centrifugal dispersion of the specially selected diamonds onto the walls of a mould. These are secured by our electro-deposition process that has won acclaim through the acquisition of industry awards, thereby achieving the short lead times so often required by customers.

The electro-deposition process is stable and unaffected by shrinkage, which results in Rotary Diamond Dressers of exceptional accuracy.

Within this category there are many further variables of appropriate diamonds and setting patterns to consider when ordering dressers of this type:

Handset Sintered Dressers

Handset Sintered Dressers are our most commonly used type of Rotary Diamond Dresser, and cover applications where robustness is required and the general tolerance is open.

As the name implies, diamonds are selected and set by hand in a mould, then secured in position by sintering in a tungsten based matrix. Allowances are made for consequential shrinkage to bring the finished dresser within specification tolerances.

Within this category there are many further variables of appropriate diamonds and setting patterns to consider when ordering dressers of this type:

General Surface Finish Produced: 0.8uM. 32 C.L.A.

Typical Applications

  • Turbine Blade
  • Automobile Valves
  • Crankshafts

CVD Sintered Dressers

Our CVD sintered rotary diamond dressers have very high thermal oxidation resistance and other excellent thermal properties. CVD is perfect for secure mounting with traditional non-ferrous metal sintering. CVD sintered rotary diamond dressers can also be brazed onto a dresser body using an active braze alloy in a non-oxidizing environment.

Benefits

  • Highly resistant to chipping and fracture
  • Wears evenly over the dresser's entire length
  • Performs regardless of dressing orientation
  • Outstanding thermal stability

CVD diamond can be manufactured in a multitude of shapes, sizes, thicknesses and grades giving engineers great flexibility with this material's extreme properties. Many variables should be consider when ordering dressers of this type:


Dimensions

Our CVD diamond dressers can be ordered in all the standard rectangular dimensions in various lengths and square, but we also specialize in supplying non-standard custom dimensions upon request.

Typical Applications

  • Metal matrix composites
  • Aluminium alloys
  • Glass-reinforced plastics
  • Carbon fibre-based materials
  • Plastics and rubbers
  • Graphite

Random Set Sintered Dressers

Random Set Sintered Dressers are most suitable where openness is required, coupled with a tight form and improved surface finish. 

Very often selected diamonds are strategically placed in the mould to support the form in vulnerable areas. The remaining area is then in-filled by centrifugal dispersion of diamonds and sintered.

Random Set Sintered Dressers have the advantage that they can be delivered quickly to meet urgent customer requirements.

Choosing the right dresser type

There are four basic categories of Rotary Diamond Dresser: 

Sometimes called Truers or Rollers, how do you know which of these will be the best rotary diamond dresser type for your application? Especially when each of these categories contain many further variables of appropriate diamonds and setting patterns, which must meet the specific requirements of:

  • TOLERANCE
  • SURFACE FINISH
  • CONFIGURATION OF FORM
  • GRINDING MACHINE TYPE
  • GRINDING WHEEL SPECIFICATION

Correct specification involves the appropriate design, selection and placement of diamonds in a way that takes into account all the factors affecting the individual customer's application. It can NOT be achieved by choosing from a small range of general purpose Dresser types. Customization is required.

Consort Precision Diamonds Company's decades of experience in specifying and manufacturing Rotary Diamond Dressers for individual applications is second to none. Our processes have won awards in the industry. And, it you costs nothing to consult with us—so contact us first to find the very best fit for your project.
