Typical grinding applications include finishing very tight tolerance features and relationships on complex, precision-machined parts with critical surface finish and geometric form tolerances as well as producing very tight tolerance sinker EDM electrodes both quickly and cost-effectively.
We also perform highly specialized, small cylindrical grinding operations with very tight tolerances, very fine surface finish requirements, and complex shapes and forms that are difficult to produce on conventional cylindrical grinders, even if they too are CNC.
It is unusual for a typical machine shop to have more than one or two surface grinders, used mainly for squaring up blanks or fixture components, or possibly to produce or sharpen special cutting tools. At RS Precision, we have a total of 12 surface grinders, including five CNC surface grinders. When combined with our extensive CNC Milling and Turning capabilities, as well as our CNC Sinker and Wire EDM capabilities, they create a unique facility for producing your complex parts “The Best They Can Be.”
