About Centerless Grinding
Centerless grinding allows for rapid rounding or out of round parts with high accuracy. This is great for high volume production of cylindrical specimens. Since it doesn not involve any chuck or holding of either end of the part, it is able to be automated with a feeder to product many parts quickly. One key factor to have sucessful parts is the setup. Finding the best centerless grinding shop for your needs is critical.
How does it work?
A part is place between a abrasive wheel and a regulating wheel. The grinding wheel moves at a very high rpm while the regulating wheel ensures that the part does not rotate to match the speed of the grinding wheel. As the part moves through the wheels, a large surface area is able to be machined at the same time. This is unlike a lathe which has a single point of contact. The part will rotate at a controlled rate as it passes through allowing for the entire surface to be machined.
Advantages of centerless grinding
Used on anything from bowling balls to cylidrical rodes, this methoding of grinding is very versatile. If you have high volume, spherical or cylindrical parts that need to be round, then consider centerless grinding for your manufacturing process.
