CITCO Grit Form Dressing Tools-FIVES

CITCO grit & form diamond dressing tools are custom engineered for a variety of grinding applications such as, surface, O.D, and centerless. 

CITCO grit and form diamond dressing tools are offered in a variety of styles from custom engineered products to ANSI standard design options. Each tool style can be designed with a straight head or angle head and variety of shank shapes and sizes including tapered options. Diamonds are set in each CITCO grit & form using a hot pressed, hand-set or pelletized manufacturing process. 

— Fresh, uniformly distributed diamond points are being continuously exposed until completely consumed
— Diamond grit tools eliminate downtime for turning, resetting or other service
— Increase production efficiency through faster truing and dressing


— Mount the tool face so that it is completely in contact the wheel
— Before tool contacts wheel, apply heavy flow of coolant and continue full flow until dressing or trueing is completed
— The traverse rate – when breaking in a new grit tool – can be twice that of a single point tool. After break-in, the traverse rate can be up to 4 times that of a single point tool
— Locate the high spot of a newly mounted wheel by traversing at an infeed rate of .001”
— Optimize tool use by not exceeding .002” infeed rate, higher rates decrease the life of the tool
— A traverse rate of about 24 I.P.M. will produce a sharper cutting wheel with a coarser finish
— For finer finishes, traverse at a rate of 12 I.P.M. or less at .001” infeed, with several final passes at .0005” infeed or less
