Grinding of a Mandrel for the Medical Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
For over 35 years, our team at Industrial Grinders & Machining has offered precision grinding and polishing services for customers requiring specialized work, including the Medical industry. A recent customer had requested the precision grinding of a mandrel that was longer than typical industry specifications.
The original size of the mandrel was .312" x 252". Our team used centerless grinding to reduce the mandrel's surface to a finished size between 0.2965" and 0.2975", while maintaining the unusually long length of 252", all to tolerances of + 0.0005". The mandrel underwent dimensional inspection for tolerance checks and was also inspected visually by our team to verify quality. We also achieved a polished surface finish of 32 RMS.
The customer was extremely pleased with our re-fabrication project and has since come back to us for additional projects that require close tolerance grinding and polishing for medical parts and equipment.
