Full Series of Precision Grinding Solutions Ready For You
Centerless Grinding Services (OD)
Centerless grinding is an OD grinding process. It differs from other cylindrical processes in that the workpiece is not mechanically constrained.
We can perform Centerless Grinding services for the large number of metal parts you may want grinded within a short period of time. Centerless Grinding is definitely the way to go if you have a large number of parts and components that need to be shaped and grinded. We offer high precision Thrufeed and Infeed centerless grinding for workpieces. With Thrufeed centerless grinding, we are able to work with workpieces with consistent roundness in the length of the workpiece. In Infeed centerless grinding, DEK can grind cylindrical workpieces with complex shapes and or tapers to stringent tolerances.
Whatever the method we have over 18 years of experience, and can do the job right and on time!
Cylindrical Grinding Services (OD & ID)
Some components having complex geometries or featural relationships that cannot be grinded by the centerless grinding process, but we will use our precision cylindrical grinders to handle.
DEK specializes in precision cylindrical grinding– that is, precision grinding inside diameters (IDs) and outside diameter (ODs) of cylindrical parts, excelling at those with multiple features, such as grooves, radii, and tapers. In some cases, form grinding may be utilized, where the component’s profile is formed directly into the grinding wheel.
Precision ID/OD grinding provides better part-to-part consistency over similar, alternative turning processes, especially for parts with size, roundness, concentricity, and surface finish requirements.
Honing Services (ID)
Honing is a finishing process used for workpieces that require the most accurate tolerance, and finish. Honing can improve the tolerances of workpieces when they are assembled in high precision systems such as internal mold cooling core pins. Honing also improves the geometric form of the surface and can perfect the surface finish of tubing or bores. The hone is turned in the bore while being moved in and out of the workpiece, removing stock and providing a high-quality finish.
DEK’s honing capabilities are extensive. We welcome a diverse range of applications and any production volume. From large machine components to intricate valves and gears, we pride ourselves on our ability to meet close tolerances as tight as +/- 0.0005″ (±0.001mm), so you’ll never have to worry about fit or functionality.
Surface Grinding Services
DEK surface grinding team has the experience and knowledge to assess the ideal ways to perform surface grinding operations and tailor every process to the needs of each part. We can accommodate large surface material. Dimensional tolerances to +/- 0.001mm can be accomplished. Surface grinding is ideal for material with a large surface and reducing cost by surface grinding multiple units at the same time. This can be achieved with stringent tolerances.
At DEK, we welcome all types of surface grinding jobs, from simple or flat surface grinding to the most complex parts. We look forward to meeting and exceeding your expectations every time.
Tightest Tolerance You Can Trust
The above table is the standard tolerance of our grinding process. If you need a more precise tolerance, such as diameter ±0.0005mm, also can be met. Please contact our technical team to get more info.
Available Material For Precision Grinding
Our CNC machine shop can machine virtually any engineering material, including plastics, metals, alloys, foam or tooling board. Here is a list of our standard grinding materials available, other materials are upon request.
Aluminum is a highly ductile metal, making it easy to machine. The material has a good strength-to-weight ratio and is available in many types for a range of applications.
Available Surface Finishes After Precision Grinding
Surface finishes are applied after precision grinding and can change the appearance, surface roughness, hardness and chemical resistance of the produced parts. Below are the mainstream surface finish types from DEK:
This is the standard choice, economical and rapid, the parts’ surface will leave visible machining marks. The surface finish is equivalent to 3.2RA μm (125 RA μin).
Polishing is to make the surface smooth by physical friction processing, it is often used to prevent corrosion and remove oxidation. After polishing, the parts have a smoother and brighter finish.
Bead blasting is the process of spraying abrasive on the surface of parts under high pressure, after sandblasting, the metal parts have a satin texture or frosted surface, eliminating the processing marks.
After anodizing, a hard non-conductive ceramic coating will be added on the surface of aluminum parts to improve the wear resistance and retain the metal texture and luster.
Electropolishing is the reverse process of electroplating, which simplifies the metal surface at the micro-level through chemical solution. After electropolishing, metal parts can be more bright and reduce surface roughness.
The black oxide is a chemical conversion coating, it is produced by a chemical reaction between iron and oxide salt in black oxide solution. The corrosion resistance of parts can be improved after black oxidation.
Powder coating can add a layer of solid and colorful polymer coating on the surface of parts, so as to improve the wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
Spray painting is to spray paint on the surface of parts in the air. After painting, the parts have various colors, improve the aesthetic appearance, and make the parts unique, enhance brand awareness.
Other surface finishes are also available. Please click here to learn all surface finish knowledge. Or contact our sales team to get an instant quote.

Accuracy Grinding For Industrial Applications
Many parts require conformity to exact specifications and standards to function and fit as intended. To meet these precision and accuracy requirements, DEK employs different grinding tools and techniques to achieve the desired size, shape, and surface texture with tight tolerances. Precision grinding finds application in the daily needs and operations of a wide range of industries, including but not limited:
Aerospace parts need to perform in extreme conditions with minimal risk of failure or malfunction. Precision grinding processes such as thread grinding produce rivets and bolts that match their original designs to the last detail. Grinding also produces exact dimensions and finishes for engines, control system parts, and hydraulic or pressurized components.
Car parts have tight tolerance demands so that all moving parts operate in tandem. The slightest protrusion or rough surface can interfere with safe operation and degrade fuel efficiency. Precision grinding the surfaces of every part ensures each component is precisely sized and reduces the amount of friction experienced.
The function of the ejector pin and core pin is very important for the plastic injection mold, if the tolerance of these mold components is not accurate, it may lead to too loose or too tight, which will directly lead to unqualified products or production paralysis. Precision grinding can make the diameter tolerance of the core pin reach ± 0.001mm, make the surface more smooth, reduce friction, increase durability, and ensure the normal operation of the injection molding.
The machines and tools that perform manufacturing and machining processes are built to withstand the stress of operation, from time to time, maintenance, repair, and part replacement are required. Precision grinding is used to maintain the performance of machining and manufacturing equipment, including by repairing existing tooling or producing new ones based on OEM specifications. Newer grinding techniques, such as centerless grinding, have also impacted the manufacturing and machining industries by reducing the costs and material wastes required to achieve higher precision parts.
Medical devices and instruments, such as drills, scalpels, and dental tools, require high precision and accuracy. Precision grinding processes enable manufacturers to finish tools to exact specifications, sharpness, and finish requirements. The grinding process also produces smoother surfaces that reduce the risk of friction or infection
The printing industry uses a variety of machinery and tools to produce the finished products, including paper rollers and blades. Precision grinding services keep blades sharp and ensure that rollers can run smoothly without bumps or rough surface interactions.
Despite the difference in size, components used in transportation equipment and heavy machinery require the same amount of precision as those used in smaller electronics and vehicles. Precision grinding machines ensure that parts are finished to exact dimensions and kept smooth to prevent frictional damage or overheating. Typical transportation parts that are precision ground include axles, engines, hydraulic components, transmissions, and valves.
