What is CNC Grinding, and what are the different Machine Types?

A CNC grinding machine is a precision performance tool that uses a rotating wheel to cut material away from metal. Usually, CNC grinding machines are used during the finishing process to create a high-quality metal workpiece for camshafts, ball bearing, transmission shafts, and other working pieces that require precision and perfect finishes. While many pieces created using a CNC grinding machine are cylindrical, a grinding machine can also be used to create other types of workpieces.

The "CNC" in CNC grinding machines stands for computerized numerical control. This means that there is no room for human error in CNC machining - the person operating the machine types the specifications into the computer, allowing the CNC grinding machine to get to work, creating the perfect high-quality tools needed for the job. Machining can be a tough job when done by hand, and the CNC process allows machining to be completed with a high level of computerized control performance.

Now that you understand how a CNC grinding machine can use computerized control to create precision workpieces, let's take a look at how valve grinding machines work, the different types of grinders, and the process of using a CNC grinding machine.

Valve Grinding Machines

When you're in the business of creating engine parts, you know how important it is to utilize the latest technology to ensure that you're creating the most high-quality product possible, while also getting the most value for your money. Valve grinding machines offer a high level of accuracy to make it easy for your engine parts to come together seamlessly.

Types of Grinders

There are several types of CNC grinding machines, including:

  • CNC roll grinders
  • CNC crankshaft grinders
  • CNC plain cylindrical grinders
  • CNC surface grinders

Grinding Process

The grinding process is fairly simple. After a qualified technician types the specifications into the computer, the grinding machine gets to work. Using precise measurements and high-quality grinding tools, the machine then works to remove excess material from metal pieces, creating a final product that meets your exact specifications. The machine exercises extreme control to create metal pieces that work seamlessly with the other parts of the engine you're creating.

Using a CNC Grinder

While the process of using a CNC grinder is simple, it takes a highly skilled technician to be able to deduce the exact measurements necessary to create the piece needed for the final product. If you're in need of a piece made with a CNC grinder, we'll work with you to understand exactly what you need. We understand how to create products with tight tolerances, and we know that there's no room for error. Your product will be exactly what you need to allow your engine to run flawlessly. We offer a high level of control in our machines, making it possible to create pieces that get the job done right.

We're proud to offer the latest in CNC and coolant technology, and it's important to us to stay on top of the latest developments in the field of CNC grinding in order to provide our customers with the most high-tech services available in the industry today.

Vertical Grinder

A vertical grinder utilizes rough materials to control the grinding process. A vertical grinder is ideal for projects that require an extremely high level of precision and control. Most vertical grinder machines are capable of providing services for face grinding, internal grinding, and outside grinding, all within the same machine. This means that a vertical grinder can be used to create high precision pieces for several aspects of your project.
