Precision Centerless Grinding

At Industrial Grinders & Machining, we provide precision centerless grinding of bars or tubes up to 40' in length and as short as 36" in length, with an outer diameter between 0.059" and 12". Centerless grinding is an OD grinding process that is ideal for creating exceptionally round parts with very fine surface finishes from a micro finish to 9 RMS. The fact that the work piece is not held in a fixture, but rather rests on a workblade, is what makes centerless grinding unique. However, to achieve a dimensionally round finish, proper positioning of the workpiece in the grinding set-up is critical. We have an extensive history in the industry and have won multiple awards for the quality of our service and delivery record.

We have #2 and #3 grinding machines capable of performing bar feed, in feed, and through feed grinding of metal, plastic, and wood material in bar stock or tubing form, to tolerances as tight as ±0.00025" on select sizes. Additional services include polishing using advanced equipment with variable speed motors to produce unrivaled surface finishes. All processes are guided by our comprehensive quality management system which is backed by our ISO 9001:2008 certification. Lead times average 2 to 3 weeks and material certification can be provided on request. For additional information about our precision centerless grinding capabilities, see the table below, or contact us directly.
