A grinding machine is a machine tool used for grinding, which is a type of machining using an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool. Each grain of abrasive on the wheel's surface cuts a small chip from the work piece via shear deformation.
Grinding finds many uses within manufacturing including as a finishing process, a sharpening tool, and it can provide extreme precision cuts and metal removal at high-speed rates. Taking the place of what was once managed by single-edged tools such as chisels, grinding machines that can be seen on manufacturing floors today pack a little more of a punch. Although there are different types, including belt, bench, cylindrical grinders and more, they all consist of power-driven grinding wheels that work on the removal of metal from a piece of raw material using an abrasive machining process.
Dimensional and concentric precision is achieved by our grinding specialists using the latest grinding methods and technology. The programmable controls permit us to grind any diameter and nose configuration.
CNC surface grinding is most proficient at producing tight tolerances and mirror finishes on flat, square, and parallel surfaces. Using form grinding (shaped wheels) or fixture grinding can achieve curved or angled geometry. A common application of CNC grinding is die sharpening, as it removes only the necessary material to produce a sharp edge.
These industrial grinding machines for metalworking and fabrication are a great solution for providing your product with the exact finish needed. Whether you are looking to remove burrs or scales from a workpiece or sharpen or clean your product, belt grinding is an important finishing service.
