Precision Grinding Services

What is grinding?

Grinding is the process of removing material from an object by the application of an abrasive machine. It is a subset of cutting, as it involves removing material. It is often used for very hard materials, as it can be better than other forms of machining. Grinding has been around for centuries, some of the early grinding machines involved using a foot pedal to turn a grinding stone. Grinding machines have come a long way since then. Grinding machines are very precise and can be used to produce very fine finishes with accurate dimensions. Grinding is very abrasive and because of this it causes heat, so grinding machines often incorporate a coolant.

What are the benefits of our grinding services?

Our Precision Grinding Services are often used as the final finishing stage of the engineering process. It is frequently used after turn-milling to provide a smooth and precise finished surface. Turn-milling can leave behind marks, or grooves, and the grinding process can smooth these out. Grinding is incredibly accurate and has a whole range of applications that are part of the engineering process. Grinding is a key element in the manufacturing process, ensuring that your finished product has been carefully and accurately engineered.

    When should we choose grinding?

    There are many applications where surface grinding is the best choice. Different types of grinding are suitable for different projects. Here are a few types of grinding and their applications. Cylindrical grinding process is used for grinding the outer surface of a cylindrical object. The centerless grinding process can be used for preparing the transmission bushing, shouldered pins, and ceramic shafts for circulator pumps. Internal grinding process is often used for finishing tapered, straight, and formed holes precisely. There is also a plethora of different special grinders which are used for certain jobs, such as sharpening milling cutters. Grinding is used across many industries, wherever precision engineering is needed. From aerospace to agriculture, from automotive to industrial. Whatever you need grinding will be able to help.
