Surface Grinding Services:Low Cost. Speed. Accuracy

surface grinding

Precision surface grinding services are tailored to the most challenging projects. We grind high-tolerance components to achieve flawless surface finishes at an affordable price.

DEK’s expert team monitors and ensures that the final product meets specified dimensions and surface finish requirements. We usually use surface grinding in manufacturing and toolmaking to produce flat surfaces with tight tolerances. Periodic wheel dressing maintains the grinding wheel's effectiveness.

Surface grinding machines include horizontal spindle and vertical spindle types. Horizontal grinders have a rotating wheel moving linearly, while vertical grinders mount the wheel vertically. Rotary tables and cylindrical grinders handle large, irregular surfaces. Creep feed grinders allow deep cuts for precision.

Error-free rate achieved through the use of automated inspection equipment. DEK is equipped with cutting-edge machines to address all your project requirements.

TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Understanding Surface Grinding

What is Surface Grinding and how does it work?

Surface grinding is a precision manufacturing process that shapes and finishes flat surfaces on materials like metal or plastic. In this method, a grinding wheel or abrasive belt, rotating at high speeds, removes small increments of material from a workpiece.

The workpiece is securely mounted on a machine table, and the grinding wheel is moved across its surface to achieve the desired shape and smoothness. Coolant may be used to prevent overheating and flush away debris. The process involves careful control of the grinding wheel's depth, angle, and movement. Regular dressing of the wheel ensures its efficiency.

What are the Advantages of Surface Grinding?

DEK can achieve your desired flatness, parallelism, and squareness specifications by optimizing cutting efficiency with various wheel and material combinations.

Our expertise extends to diverse surface grinding techniques, and we possess the skill to grind any material that falls within our size parameters.

Here are the advantages of surface grinding:

- Achieves high levels of accuracy.

- Provides a smooth surface finish.

- Capable of achieving precise dimensional tolerances.

- Effective for creating flat and even surfaces.

- Improves the alignment of workpieces.

- Applicable to various materials in manufacturing processes.

When do you use Surface Grinding?

Surface grinding is widely used in different industries. In aerospace, it ensures tight tolerances in components like turbine blades. The automotive sector relies on it for precise fits in cylinder heads and transmission parts.

In mold and die making, it is used for accurate and smooth surfaces on molds and dies. Medical device manufacturing uses it for exact dimensions and polished finishes in components like surgical instruments.

Toolrooms apply surface grinding for sharpening cutting tools. It contributes to producing bearings, shafts, and electronic components. The textile industry utilizes it for precision in spindles and gears. Hydraulic and pneumatic components and general machine shop applications benefit from surface grinding for maintaining tight tolerances and optimal functionality.

FAQ

Surface Grinding Buying FAQs

Yes, surface grinding can be applied to ferrous (iron-based) and non-ferrous materials, such as aluminum and copper.
Surface grinding can achieve a variety of surface finishes, ranging from very rough to very smooth. Commonly used measurements for surface finish include Ra (average roughness) and Rz (maximum height of profile).
While surface grinding is primarily used for flat surfaces, it can be employed to create simple contours. However, other machining methods may be more suitable for highly complex shapes.
Common abrasive materials used in surface grinding include aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, and diamond. The choice depends on the material being ground and the desired finish.
Coolant is often used in surface grinding to control heat and prevent thermal damage to the workpiece and the grinding wheel. It also helps improve surface finish and extend tool life.
Yes, safety precautions include using personal protective equipment, proper machine guarding, and ventilation systems to control dust. Proper disposal of coolant and grinding by-products is also important for environmental considerations.
Yes, surface grinding is commonly used for finishing hardened materials. It is effective in achieving tight tolerances on hardened surfaces.
Factors such as batch size, complexity of parts, and precision requirements influence the choice. CNC surface grinding offers greater automation and precision.
Yes, surface grinding is versatile and can be used for production runs and custom projects, depending on the requirements.
The cost of surface grinding depends on factors like material, tolerances, and complexity. While it may have higher initial setup costs, it can be cost-effective for achieving tight tolerances and high-quality surface finishes. Based on project requirements, comparative costs should be discussed with our sales team.
