Monroe Engineering & Manufacturing offers many solutions for your precision grinding needs, among those is cylindrical grinding. Our experienced toolmakers utilize OD grinders, ID grinders and centerless grinders to provide a wide range of cylindrical grinding services.
Material is held between centers and rotated as the grinding wheel travels up and down the length of the part. OD grinding allows cylindrical parts to be ground to precise dimensions and finishes.
The workpiece is held in a chuck and rotated as the grinding wheel moves in and out of the ID to remove material and achieve the proper dimension and finish to meet customer expectations.
ID grinding creates a high degree of accuracy on the inside diameter dimension of the product as well as a precision surface finish.
The workpiece is supported on its own diameter by a workblade between a slow speed regulating wheel and a larger high speed grinding wheel. Correcting out of round conditions on cylindrical parts as well as achieving some of the best dimensional tolerances and surface finishes available in the metal working industry makes centerless grinding the correct choice for many projects.
