Diamond or CBN wheels are widely used now, but the application of these wheels in form-grinding is still limited due to the difficulty of truing. The subject of study is to achieve the technology of truing super-abrasive wheels for the form-grinding. In the present paper, a new technique using a cup-type GC wheel is proposed, and the truing device is designed and produced. This device can true a wheel into any convex shape, through envelope of lines made by the cup-type GC truer. The fundamental characteristics including truing efficiency and accuracy are also investigated by truing a CBN grinding wheel. The excellent truing performance of this device is demonstrated by grinding following truing.
