How To Properly Care For Diamond Tooling Used In Grinding Applications

Eddie Barnes

If you have a lot of expensive diamond tooling used for grinding purposes, it's a good idea to protect them as best you can. Then the money you spent won't be a waste, but rather make a huge difference in your grinding operations for a while. These particular maintenance steps should be taken with diamond tooling used for grinding. 

Be Careful When Dressing the Diamond Tool

After using a diamond grinding tool, it may lose some of its optimal shape. That can be fixed thanks to dressing systems. They will help you get the grinding tool back in the best shape to where you can continue grinding materials with maximum proficiency.

Just be careful when dressing the diamond grinding tool. Be steady and precise with your movements so that you don't manipulate the grinding tool in a negative way that causes performance problems. 

Use a Cleaning Stick

When you grind materials with a diamond tool, you may have some of the material actually stay on it. Or some things may collect on the diamond grinding tool after leaving it out for several hours while being exposed.

You can effectively remove these particles and materials using a cleaning stick. It will clean your diamond grinding tool and as long as you don't use too much force, you're not going to damage the tool or injure yourself. Use this cleaning stick consistently to prime your diamond grinding tool correctly before starting on projects. 

Stay Aware of Abnormal Signs of Wear

Diamond grinding tooling is naturally going to wear down after a particular period of time, but sometimes, abnormal wear can happen. It's important to not let this problem go unnoticed because it could really affect how this tool is able to perform and last. 

You need to perform a thorough investigation when you experience abnormal signs of wear. Maybe the diamond grinding tool isn't calibrated right or maybe you're using this tool on the wrong materials. Either way, you need to make a diagnosis before using the diamond grinding tool again. Then you can change up how you're using the tool or what you're using it with.

Maintenance can be performed to diamond grinding tools and if you get it right, you won't have to replace these tools any time soon. You can perform a lot of maintenance steps yourself and without having to really invest in a lot of technical equipment. Consistency is what matters most.
