Infeed Grinding

What Is Centerless Grinding?

Centerless grinding performs a machining operation in which an abrasive wheel grinds metal from a bar or part surface while a regulating wheel forces the bar or part against the grinding wheel.  The term “centerless” indicates that the bar or part is not placed between any centering device, but is rather supported by a rest blade situated between the grinding wheel and regulating wheel.

Infeed Grinding And How It Works

Infeed grinding has part specific fingers that drop the parts for OD grind between the grinding wheel and after a specified allotment of time, a kicker will kick out the part out from between the wheels where the part will fall down a chute and away from the machine for the next part to repeat the cycle.

What Can Be Ground?

Any metals can potentially be ground. Here at GSI we have ground aluminum, stainless steel and carbide, just to name a few.
