Help with Wheel Dressers and Dressing Tools specifications:

Type
   Form:       
   Your choices are...         
   Dressing Roll / Rotary       Dressing roll or rotary tools consist of a roll or wheel with a surface coating of diamonds. Steel crushing rolls are also used to dress creep feed grinding wheels through a crushing process. 
   Dressing Spindle       Dressing spindles consists of a dressing tool or roll mounted on a spindle. Spindle often have an integral drive and brake. 
   Dressing Stick       Dressing sticks are bonded abrasives products with a rectangular block shape. Dressing sticks typically use silicon carbide, boron carbide or aluminum oxide in a vitrified bond. 
   Dressing Tool - Impregnated / Grit       Impregnated or grit dressing tools use a section or layer of diamond or superabrasive grain bonded in a matrix. 
   Dressing Tool - Multi-Point / Cluster       Multi-point or cluster dressing tools use several diamonds or superabrasive points positioned across the surface of the dresser. 
   Dressing Tool - Single Point       Single point dressing tools using one diamond or superabrasive point. 
   Dressing Machine       Dressing machines hold, position and move the dressing tool relative to the grinding wheel being dressed. Dressing machines usually have integral drives and braking systems. 
   Dressing Tool - Star / Huntington       Dressing tools consisting of star shaped discs or rollers for coarse dressing operations.  They are typically fabricated from steel. 
   Dressing Tool - Radius / Form       Dressing tools designed for dressing radius or profile features into the surface of a grinding wheel. A negative profile of the desired part / shape is dressed into the grinding wheel. 
   Truing Device       Truing devices are used to correct the concentricity and shape of a grinding wheel, which reduces vibration and produce a wheel with uniform cutting rate. Dressing removes bond material to expose fresh abrasive grains and renew the abrasive product. 
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary or patented wheel dresser, dressing tool or truing device.

Dressing Material / Abrasive
   Dressing Material / Abrasive:       
   Your choices are...         
   Diamond       Synthetic diamond is produced synthetically in a high temperature, high pressure process anvil press. Diamond is superabrasive grain with the highest known hardness and a cubic crystal structure. Diamond is used for dressing bonded abrasive wheels and products as well as grinding nonferrous metals, ceramics, glass, stone, and building materials.  
   Aluminum Oxide       Aluminum oxide is the most common industrial mineral in use today. Fused aluminum oxide is produced synthetically by melting bauxite and additive in an arc furnace to form a fused aluminum oxide ingots, which are later crushed and sized. Fused aluminum oxide is also produced synthetically by chemically purifying The various types of fused aluminum oxides are distinguished by the levels of chemical impurities remaining in the fused mineral. Titanium and chromium oxides are typical additives. Other techniques to make industrial abrasive start with treating bauxite ore with a sol gel process to create alumina that is sintered to produce with an extremely fine crystalline structure typical of the sol gel or Seeded Gel products available by Saint Gobain Abrasives. Fused aluminum oxide is available in several variations depending on composition and processing such as white (high purity), brown or regular (titanium oxide modified) and pink (chromium oxide additions). Titanium oxide additions can toughen the abrasive and enable heat treating process, which changes brown aluminum oxide to a blue colored grain as TiO2 precipitates form. Aluminum oxide abrasives are also produced with chemical precursors and precipitation, calcination and/or sintering processes. Calcined or platelet aluminas as used in fine grit or polishing applications.  Sol-gel aluminum oxide is produced in using chemical ceramic technology, but this abrasive has very high performance and is usually referred to as Ceramic abrasive grain to distinguish the grain from lower performing fused aluminum oxide.  Aluminum oxide occurs naturally in the form of the mineral corundum, but the mineral is not used as a commercial abrasive except as a component of emery. 
   Boron Carbide       Boron carbide (B4C) is a very hard abrasive, with hardness second only to CBN and diamond. Boron carbide is very friable and as a result bonded wheel dressing and loose abrasive finishing of tungsten carbide or other hard alloys are the main applications for B4C grain. 
   Silicon Carbide       Silicon carbide is a synthetic abrasive first developed in the late 1800s.  SiC is harder than aluminum oxide, but more friable than fused aluminum oxide grains. Silicon carbide is typically applied to nonferrous applications (brass, aluminum, titanium).  The high solubility of carbon and silicon in iron would result in a reaction of silicon carbide with the iron base alloy and poor grinding performance.  Levels and types of impurities distinguish the green and black forms of silicon carbide. The sharp and easily fractured abrasive grains for abrading other non-metals such as the stone, glass, wood, and leather. SiC, like diamond, is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures. 
   Steel       Steel is an alloy based iron, carbon and other alloying additives such as chromium, nickel or molybdenum.  Steel is used in a variety of structural and tooling applications depending on the specific alloy and heat treatment condition. 
   Other       Other specialty, proprietary or patented abrasive grain, grit or abrasive material.
