For small diameter metal parts, our highly efficient double disk grinding services are unmatched in their ability to produce high volumes of components to micron tolerances. Our vertical double disk grinders not only hold extraordinary dimensional tolerances, but also produce the surface finishes, end features, parallelism, and flatness designed to meet a variety of manufacturing needs.
Flexibility and Precision for High Volumes
Our full-service capabilities include two vertical double disk grinders with a huge throughput capacity, enabling us to handle even the largest orders and tight production schedules while grinding parts to precision tolerances. Both solid parts and tubes, including thin wall tubing, can be processed free of heat-affected zones and with significant surface finish improvements.
Simultaneously grinding two sides of the workpiece, our double disk grinding process removes equal amounts of material from both sides in one operation. This not only ensures greater control of dimensional tolerances, flatness, and parallelism, but also relieves internal stress relief and improves part stability during secondary operations.
Working with virtually any metal, our double disk grinding can satisfy a wide range of manufacturing requirements and demanding specifications — providing cost-effective thickness sizing for large volumes of small parts such as fine blanked stamped, die cast, and sintered metal parts. This capability enables Metal Cutting to produce small metal parts for customers with a diverse array of applications, including bearing races, cam lobes, vane rotors, washers, impellers, spacers, nuts and doughnuts, driven sprockets, gears, VTC bodies, flanged bearings, seal rings, cam rings, VTC sprockets, pinion gears, and fuel injector parts.
Our Expert Double Disk Grinding Process
Designed for grinding small diameter components, our equipment accurately controls length and perpendicularity. Featuring multi-axis controls, our grinding machines can be configured specifically for your application, to deliver the proper shape and finish using the optimal amount of automation. Our vertical double disk grinders also provide high rigidity and exceptional durability, making them steady and reliable for both high precision and heavy-duty grinding. In throughfeed mode, components are fed continuously through the machines, enabling increased throughput that far exceeds any manual or even pick and place loading methods.
Our in-house inventory of grinding wheels supports custom engineering and provides exceptional performance for even the most challenging applications. Our double disk grinding wheels deliver outstanding life, which optimizes grinding time cycles and provides consistency over the entire run of parts. Our grinding process also achieves optimum parallelism and consistent flatness for material that needs to be stacked or spot-faced during machining operations.
Together, our equipment, control interfaces, and trained staff ensure that your project is completed quickly and efficiently. In-line inspection can be deployed to automatically size adjust, to improve accuracy and repeatability. Features such as simple setup and control, gaging integration, adjustable spindle rigidity, and automatic height adjustment and wheel dressing aid customization while speeding operation and helping to ensure precise and consistent results.
