CITCO XL-2000 Dressing Tools-FIVES

"No turning, no resetting, no maintenance"

The CITCO XL 2000 dressing system offers a long lasting, no maintenance, high productivity tool which covers a wide range of dressing applications, from small I.D. to large centerless and cylindrical wheels. 

Each tool is precisely matched to the individual dressing requirement. Diamonds are carefully sorted, selected and handset according to wheel size and type of abrasive. All “H” type CITCO XL 2000 dressers are handset with a specific diamond pattern to provide maximum consistency. “G” type dressers have random diamond dispersion for applications requiring less precision.




Tool can be completely consumed - no turning or resetting required



Improved dresser life - more dresses per tool and more pieces ground between dresses



Can replace single points, grit dressers, clusters and shaped dressers



Use for both contour and straight dressing applications



Special diamond pattern keeps tool width and contact area the same throughout tool life for uniform wheel conditioning



Offered with standard 7/16 shank or bolt on adapter. Other shank sizes available by quotation


— Always apply full flood coolant directly on diamond before making any contact with the abrasive grinding wheel
— Mount with the blade parallel to the abrasive wheel’s centerline, tangent to the OD, and at right angle to it’s radius. (See Exhibit 1)
