Surface Grinding Machines and Process

Surface Grinding is a manufacturing process which moves or grinding wheel relative a surface in a plane while a grinding wheel contacts the surface and removes a minute amount of material, such that a flat surface is created. The term surface grinding designates any process which accurately processes or grinds a surface.

Surface grinding methods include: horizontal-spindle, vertical-spindle, vertical-spindle rotary grinding, horizontal spindle single disk, and vertical swivel head grinding.

Parts may require surface grinding for several reasons. The following are a few of the more common reasons:

  • Produce a very flat surface.
  • Very accurate thickness tolerance specified.
  • A very smooth surface roughness Ra is specified/required.
  • Cutting tool sharpening

Surface grinding machines and processes where first developed to to manufacture very tight tight tolerances, smooth surface finishes, and removing material from very hard materials
