This paper provides a comprehensive review on the dressing techniques of diamond grinding wheels. The common techniques with different tools were discussed in detail, which included the bonded SiC and diamond abrasive tools, loose abrasives, soft-elastic abrasive belts, and profiled diamond wheels. Meanwhile, laser dressing, electrical discharge dressing (EDD), and electrolytic in-process dressing (ELID) were also addressed. Some critical problems in the above dressing techniques were then analyzed and summarized for further investigation.
