Double disc grinding makes it possible to grind opposite surfaces of the part at the same time, potentially reducing overall grinding cycle time. This style of grinding also makes it much easier for a shop to maintain tight tolerances on flatness or parallelism between surfaces, as this footage from TCI Precision Metals shows.

  • Wire EDM with a Twist

    Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.
