In aspheric grinding of hard brittle material, in-process wheel wear is a crucial factor affecting the profile error of the ground surface. To suppress wheel wear, parallel grinding is adopted. Since the wheel and workpiece contact point changes during parallel grinding, geometric wheel error influences machining accuracy significantly. In the wheel truing process with a cup truer, the wheel radius is determined by the angle and distance between the wheel and the truer. Through geometric analysis, this paper presents a new equation of wheel radius, which enables process parameters, such as setup error or thermal error, to be determined easily. Simulation results show that wheel radius error is predominantly affected by vertical deviation between the wheel rotation center and the truer center. Experimental results show that wheel radius errors match those from simulation well.
