Kapp Niles manufactures dressing tools in positive and negative electroplated versions. The highest flexibility can be achieved with form rolls for topological dressing, according to the company. For the so-called flexible dressing, the tools are designed to dress worms for different workpieces with one tool, while the tip of the worm is dressed separately. For serial production, profile rolls with an integrated tip dresser are available in a workpiece-specific design, optionally also for the grinding of targeted tooth base machining. The most productive solution for high-volume machining is said to consist in the deployment of multi-ribbed diamond profile rolls manufactured in a negative electroplating process, whereby the dressing times can reportedly be reduced by up to 60 percent.
Dressing tools for productive processes
Continuous grinding of gears is one of the most productive methods for producing highly precise tooth flank geometries. The German company provides dressing tools for this purpose.
