Centerless Grinding is an extremely productive machining method for producing high precision cylindrical parts and bars. Very close tolerances in the micrometer range are typical together with high quality surface finishes.
In centerless grinding, the workpiece is not required to be clamped or mounted between centers. Parts are supported on a workrest blade, which is located between the grinding wheel and regulating wheel. The grinding wheel grinds and drives the workpiece. The regulating wheel acts as a brake, controlling the rotation of the workpiece and for thrufeed grinding, the rate that the workpiece travels.
Cincinnati Centerless Grinders have been proven to be the most popular, toughest and most durable centerless grinders ever made. They are the first choice for high production and lasting value.
