Rotahead™
Rotating the single point dresser is important to reduce wear, maintain a sharp point, and minimize thermal buildup. For years this has meant routinely loosening setscrews, re-indicating the shaft 20° to 40°, and then re-tightening the setscrews. Costs increased with every minute of downtime, and wear became uneven as the amount of rotation varied with each machine operator.

Dessau addressed these problems. After a five year research and development program, the company introduced - an innovative design for single point dressers.

Micro Rotahead

Its advantages are many:

Longer tool life - ease of use encourages more frequent rotation, producing more even wear and longer life

Studier design - it withstands 2 to 3 times more torque than other single point dressers, and eliminates excess vibration and chatter.

Brass head reduces heat buildup - diamond life increased over conventional steel tools.

This tool is recommended for straight dressing all types of grinding wheels where the diamond approaches the wheel at an angle. (Diamond point can be natural or coned w/radius)

The turntable brass allows the diamond to be rotated without moving the tool in the holder. No re-indicating, less downtime, increased productivity and tool life.

Rotaheads can be modified to customer specifications.
