Experienced operators know dressing is integral to the health and performance of a grinding wheel. That’s why we designed the 3M™ Diamond Multi-Point Dressing Tool — to help operators keep their grinding wheels in great shape.

Don't Forget to Dress
3M offers a versatile line of dressing tools, each uniquely equipped to sharpen specific wheels. Ultimately, the dressing tool you select will be based on a variety of factors, including wheel size, mineral type and just how much buildup needs to be cleared from the wheel. The 3M™ Diamond Multi-Point Dressing Tool is one of the toughest dressing tools, designed for wheels that require the highest removal rates.

Featuring a multi-point design, this diamond dressing tool has five or seven diamond minerals, depending on model, adhered to the tool's head; they extrude slightly from the surface. One diamond mineral rests in the center of the tool head, while the others are evenly spaced and equidistant, 5/8" from each other. Diamond mineral is one of the sharpest, most durable natural minerals, which makes this tool a good match for ceramic wheels. On the other hand, the dressing tool can also be used on non-ferrous metals. Together, the tough diamond mineral and multi-point design make this tool a great match for wheels that need heavy-duty dressing.

Help Wheels Live Longer
While truing is synonymous with profiling and helps restore the wheel's original shape, dressing sharpens its surface. Naturally, bond material and swarf build up on the wheel over time. Moreover, when a loaded wheel heats up, it can lead to glazing or smoothing of the wheel's textured face. These issues highlight the importance of dressing; it will help your wheel run as intended. Trued and dressed wheels have fresh cutting edges that grind quickly and evenly on metal surfaces, which increases throughput and improves quality.

In summary, truing and dressing are important maintenance processes required to keep expensive abrasive wheels cutting consistently. These applications help you extend the lifespan of your wheels and should be an integral part of any workshop that uses abrasive wheels regularly.
