The Grinding Process Grinding is a material removal and surface generation process used to shape and finish components made of metals and other materials. The precision and surface finish obtained through grinding can be up to ten times better than with either turning or milling.
Schematic of a horizontal centerless grinding setup. Illustration by CTE staff. During grinding, the force of the grinding wheel pushes the workpiece into the regulating wheel and against the support. The regulating wheel determines the workpieces rotational speed.
Grinding Centreless, Centred, Honing, Horizontal Grinding One of the workhorses of the precision engineers workshop is the grinding machine. These are a range of tools that can be used to increase shape and dimension accuracy as well as to give the ideal finish.Unit 53 Cobham Road Ferndown Industrial Estate Wimborne BH21 7RB 01202855070
The Makino G7 Multifunctional 5 Axis Horizontal Machine combines grinding, drilling, boring and milling in one platform, which saves on capital equipment.
