Sorry, I have no experience with that grinder. Have you tried the "sharpening" forum?

This looks similar to my Oregon grinder, which is acutally made by Tecomec (from Italy). The three angle adjustments you likely have are: Vise Tilt Angle, which generally is only utilized for narrow kerf chains; Cutter Grinding Angle, which is adjusted with the vise and determines the angle you grind the cutters at - generally 30 or 35 degrees; Top Plate Grind Angle, which determines the angle at which you approach the cutting edge of the cutter - generally 60 degrees for most chains; Side Plate Grind Angle, which determines the angle at which you grind the depth gauges - usually I grind these at 85 degrees for low-kick chains and 75 degrees for standard chains. You will then have two grind depth adjustments; Cutter Depth, which is adjusted on the vise and determines the how far back on the cutter you will grind; Gullet Depth, which is adjusted on the grinder motor and determines how deep into the gullet you will grind - not too far as you will grind the tie-straps and weaken the integrity of the chain but not too shallow and then not get a sufficient grind. Of course you will grind all the right-hand cutters first then the left-hand cutters and then set the adjustments to cut the depth gauges with a zero angle on the vise.
