Centerless grinding stands tall among other processes because it can accomplish every type of machining work with one process – and at fast lead times!
Industries Turn to Centerless Grinding
Big manufacturers of precision products and tools must have a reliable source of raw materials, like bars in varying finishes, sizes, and mechanical properties, to fit their specific application. It is also important that these materials undergo a consistent, controlled procedure for quality consistency.
Centerless grinding is used to perfect the finish and size of bars in a continuous process. Since the demand for ground bar stock has grown, suppliers are relentless and demand consistent production of material with the required tolerance. In meeting daily production volumes, CNC machines require the products of grinding operations like OD grinding and centerless grinding, to feed into new advancements and machines to enhance their operations.
Centerless Grinding Approach
In order to achieve wide ranges of productivity in the operation, grinding machines should be properly equipped and constantly dressed with new abrasive grains, and proper placement of grinders should be ensured to handle different diameters and geometries of workpieces.
Centerless grinding makes it possible to achieve close tolerances, precision roundness, and maintain accuracy with thorough surface grinding and a controlled gap between centers. In addition, this machining process allows a variety of functional tasks like cleaning, polishing, finishing, and roughing performed in a single pass.
The ability to handle multiple machining solutions and achieve precise results best explains why centerless grinding has become the new standard in production technique. Advance Grinding has a stock of many grades and sizes of different metals, and has the machining capabilities to support high volume productions.
