Precision Grinding

Through-feed grinding is a form of centerless grinding in which the work piece passes through the machine. This type of grinding is effective for single diameter parts from small dowel pins to shafts up to 16" long. Sturdy Grinding has the ability to automate some thru-feed operations with vibratory bowls allowing for continuous feeding. This helps us provide the most competitive pricing for our customers on high volume work.

This process is ideal for mass producing straight or cylindrical parts with single diameters, with extreme precision. Our centerless grinders are equipped with automated feeders, so we can offer fast turn-around at a competitive and affordable price.

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

  • Hex Bolts
  • Armature Shafts
  • Pistons
  • Planetary Gear
  • Pump Shafts
  • Ejector Pins

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.
