Our external grinding capabilities include high finishes and/or tight tolerances. In addition to cylindrical features, we can also grind tapers, forms, and grooves. We can accommodate diameters less than 1/4 inch to diameters in excess of 30". Although this type of grinding is often called Between Centers, we can handle parts with or without centers.
Centerless grinding also removes stock from the outside diameter of a work piece, but Between Centers is preferred in instances where the diameter must be concentric with the inside diameter or other outside diameters.

Applications include shafts, tubes, bearing journals, washers, pistons, slip rings, gears, seals, rolls, and pins.
