Process: Grinding

Overview

Known as an abrasive machining process, grinding uses a wheel to remove material and create an extremely fine finish. By using a grinding process, precise tolerances are able to be met, making it a popular practice within the manufacturing sector as a whole. Grinding can either be practised on an industrial grinding machine, or using a handheld angle grinder or die grinder. The grinding operation used will depend upon variations of the component, including size and shape. Most commonly, these include surface and cylindrical grinding.
