Center less Grinding

We have four machines for diameters ranging from .030" up to 8.

Lengths of over 300" can be accommodated on our largest #3 Cincinnati.

Long considered the most productive method for heavy stock removal, centerless grinding provides close tolerances and surface finishes. The varieties of part groups are extensive and include the following:
  • barstock
  • shafting and light rolls
  • pins
  • sleeves
  • bushings
  • small diameters
  • pipe and tubing

We can grind the entire length of an outside diameter or "plunge grind" a step down to a smaller diameter in one-third the time required by cylindrical grinding methods on the following materials:

  • carbon steel and stainless steel
  • aluminum and its alloys
  • copper and its alloys
  • brass and its alloys
  • tungsten
  • plastics, though not all are grindable
  • glass and quartz
  • cast iron
  • epoxy laminates
  • titanium

Consider centerless grinding for pre-sizing your barstock prior to chucker operations or screw machine parts production. Many companies use us to hold size on cold finished rounds to fit pillow block bearings
