Precision Grinding

End-feed grinding is a type of centerless grinding in which the part does not pass through the machine. In end-feed grinding, the work piece rests between a fixed blade and a regulating wheel. As the regulating wheel spins the part, the grinding wheel comes in from the opposite side and grinds the steel. End-feed grinding is ideal for smaller parts with heads or multiple diameters that can't pass through a grinding machine.

Our skilled operators have a great deal of experience grinding multiple diameters, grinding shoulders, and grinding radii. We deliver top quality products with tight tolerances of up to .0002".

Using ASI Datamyte quality control software and SPC methods, we can easily monitor the quality of our centerless grinding services including:

  • Armature Shafts

Steel Bar Grinding

Sturdy Grinding & Machining offers a great deal of defect-free bar grinding experience. We can grind bars and tubes as large as 11" in diameter and as long as 40' in virtually all metals used in modern manufacturing. In addition, we can supply heat treated rolls and shafting.

Similar, to through-feed grinding, bar grinding is a type of centerless grinding in which the bar passes through the machine. The bar rests on a fixed blade and is spun by a regulating wheel. As that occurs, an abrasive wheel grinds the work piece. Long bars ground in this fashion are supported by rollers on both ends of the machine.
