Based on the results of the preliminary study on the influence of high intensity Nd: YAG laser radiation on grinding wheel constituents, an experimental set-up for dressing a grinding wheel was made. Studies were carried out to evaluate the performance of a laser dressed Al2O3 wheel in surface grinding under dry cutting conditions. Results confirmed the viability of this approach and indicated the existence of an optimal dressing condition for good results.
