Meeting Microgrinding Challenges

A technology for microgrinding reminiscent of Swiss-type machines' sliding headstocks can handle higher length-to-diameter ratios in the grinding of medical guidewires and other long, skinny parts.


Robotic Polishing of Turbine Engine Blades

Testing explores an airfoil finishing alternative to loose-abrasive polishing.


Additive Manufacturing’s Assist to ID Grinding

By addressing a long-standing coolant-delivery problem, an additively grown nozzle enhanced the effectiveness of ID grinding in a complementary role.


Shifting from Manual to Automatic

By partnering with its suppliers as a knowledge resource, this job shop made a successful transition from manual to CNC thread grinding, raising productivity and attracting new business with its increased capabilities.


Shop Combines Automated Grinding and Swiss Turning

Many shops are increasing the scope of their machining capabilities. This Ohio shop has added cylindrical grinding to its 24-hour Swiss-type operations.


Internal Grind Machines: The Importance of Maintaining Components’ Alignment

This article outlines the importance of this alignment, explains how to recognize the symptoms of misalignment and describes what corrective steps to take. The author, Bill Bednarski, is an applications engineer at Saint-Gobain Abrasives in Worceste...


Closing the Loop

Gathering information is worth it only if it’s put to practical use. Applying measurement data to streamline spiral bevel gear making clarifies the true value of the closed-loop process.


Grinding in the Multitasking Mix

While different approaches to multitasking have been around for a while, shops often aren’t aware of many of the advantages these machines offer.


Wire EDM for Dressing Metal-Bonded Wheels

The Studer WireDress system, which uses the wire “spark erosion process” to dress a metal-bonded grinding wheel while it is still mounted in the grinder, makes using these wheels more efficient and economical.


Acoustic Emission Sensing Improves Productivity and Prolongs Grinding Wheel Life

In production of precision metal parts such as automotive or aerospace components, grinding to precise tolerances is of utmost importance.
