Suppliers of Stainless Steel & Non-Ferrous Metals

The metal centerless grinding process is similar to centred grinding except no spindle is used. Instead, the cylindrical metal workpiece is supported by two opposed grinding wheels and feed at a controlled speed.

Centerless grinding is a very economical form of metal processing as you can achieve a high through put.

There are several different types of metal centerless grinding:

  • Through feed centerless grinding
  • Infeed centerless grinding
  • End feed centerless grinding (this method creates a tapered effect)
  • Internal centerless grinding

Centerless grinding enables you to grind parts with geometries, you can remove odd numbered lobbing on the shaft of a part and you can maintain a size beyond the capabilities of an OD grinder.

Metal centerless grinding is a process suitable for stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, nickel alloys and bronze.
