Our Centerless End-Feed Grinding Process
End-feed grinding is a type of centerless grinding in which the part does not pass through a typical grinding machine and has a specific centerless grinding machine. The workpiece rests between a fixed blade and a regulating wheel in end-feed grinding. 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.
