Grinding Machines

To make precision cuts that produce very fine finishes, a grinding machine removes material from a workpiece by abrasion, using a power-driven grinding wheel as a cutting tool spinning at a required speed determined by wheel diameter and manufacturer’s rating, along with a bed-mounted fixture to guide and hold the workpiece. The grinding head can be controlled to travel across the fixed workpiece, or the workpiece can move while the grinding head remains in a fixed position. Types of precision grinding operations include centerless grinding, cylindrical grinding, form grinding, surface grinding and more.
