Barstock and Tube Grinding Services

Centerless End Feed/Plunge Grinding

Tube Grinding | Detroit, MI | Sturdy Grinding Company - CenterlessEndFeed(1)

In centerless grinding, known as end-feed grinding, the part is not fed through the machinery. The work piece is positioned between a fixed blade and a regulating wheel during end-feed grinding. The grinding wheel enters from the other side and grinds the steel as the regulating wheel rotates the component. For tiny items with heads or numerous diameters that can't fit through a grinding machine, end-feed grinding is ideal. Our skilled operators deliver quality products with tight tolerances of up to 0.0002”.

Centerless Thru-Feed Grinding

Tube Grinding | Detroit, MI | Sturdy Grinding Company - CenterlessThruFeedGrinding

The work piece travels through the machine while centerless grinding is done with through-feed. Small dowel pins and shafts up to 16" long can be effectively ground using this technique. Through-feed processes can be automated by Sturdy Grinding using vibrating bowls that provide continuous feeding. This enables us to offer our customers the most affordable prices on jobs with huge volume.

The technique is perfect for mass producing cylindrical or straight items with a single diameter. Since our centerless grinders have automated feeders, we can provide quick turnaround at a reasonable cost.

Bar Stock Grinding

Tube Grinding | Detroit, MI | Sturdy Grinding Company - BarStock

Bar grinding is a kind of centerless grinding in which the bar is sent through the machine, much like through-feed grinding. The bar is supported by a fixed blade and rotated by an adjustment wheel. An abrasive wheel grinds the work item while that happens. Rollers on both ends of the machine support long bars that are ground in this way.

Our expertise in defect-free bar grinding is extensive. We can grind practically all of the metals used in contemporary manufacturing, including bars and tubes up to 40' long and 11" in diameter. We can also provide shafting and heat-treated rollers.

CNC OD Grinding

Tube Grinding | Detroit, MI | Sturdy Grinding Company - Large_Generator_Shaftx

The part is suspended by centers during OD grinding. In order to manufacture the work piece, a driver spins the component as a grinding wheel advances. This method of grinding is used for a sizable fraction of automobile drive and shafting components today. For both high and low volume OD grinding orders, Sturdy Grinding has some of the top CNC OD grinders and inspection tools. We are able to maintain the required levels of cylindricity, concentricity, run out, size, length, grind lead, and surface finish. We measure these specifications with precision down to millionths of an inch. We have data collection capabilities that enable immediate data download to statistical process control software, should that be necessary.
