There is a possibility that resinoid bond wheel may thermally be dressed by scanning the heat source on the wheel surface, because bonding material is lower heat resistance than other ones. In this paper, the dressing effect on resinoid bond wheel with YAG laser beam is discussed, observing the acting wheel surface and investigating the grinding characteristics of the wheel dressed by scanning YAG laser beam. Main conclusions obtained in this paper are as follows: (1) Irradiation of YAG laser on resinoid bond wheel surface results in the dressing effect. (2) The effective dressing conditions concerning the peripheral wheel speed and the feed rate of laser beam are determined by the heat energy provided on wheel surface, the transitional characteristic of heating and the width of affected region by scanning of laser beam during one revolution of wheel. (3) Resinoid bonding material become brittle and weak and/or abrasive grains are damaged by irradiation of YAG laser on the wheel surface. (4) Under the same heat energy provided on wheel surface, surface finish increases with a decrease of the peripheral wheel speed in dressing and an increase of the feed rate of laser beam.
