XL-2010 Dressing System

The new XL-2010 is a highly engineered dressing system designed to eliminate dressing tool break-in time for centerless, angle-head and other grinder applications. CITCO engineers accomplish this by designing the correct tool for the specific grinding wheel according to the user's individual requirements. A new XL-2010 dressing tool may be installed and immediately begin dressing for first part-good part operation. The XL-2010 can be ordered with hand-set diamonds in a specific pattern for consistency in high precision applications, or random dispersion for applications requiring less precision. The XL-2010 is a long lasting, low maintenance, high productivity dressing system appropriate for a wide range of grinding applications, from small I.D. wheels to large centerless and cylindrical wheels. Several blade widths are available. Tool inventories can be reduced using the XL-2010 system by replacing single points, grit dressers, clusters and shaped dressers.
