Centerless Grinding Capabilities
It’s the quest that drives us to invest in the mechanical advantages of lean manufacturing to deliver value-added performance.
With our centerless grinding services, EMC Precision delivers accuracy that exceeds conventional machining capabilities. Our facility houses state-of-the-art grinding equipment with robotic loading/unloading and CNC dresser heads to ensure consistent high quality while lowering production costs. We generate top value parts with tolerances of 2.5 micron (±0.00005″), and we have an extensive lineup of high-caliber metrology tools for dimensional measurement and inspection of surface quality, concentricity, roundness, etc. Our experienced production staff pays attention to every detail to produce consistently reliable results on projects of any size or complexity.
Our through feed and profile centerless grinding capabilities enable us to take on the most challenging requirements for size, surface quality, concentricity, etc. We monitor and control every facet of the process, such as dressing method, feed rate, wheel force, and rotational speed, to ensure accuracy. Automated loading and unloading enable us to continuously process large volumes of parts with a very high rate of productivity. Metals we work with include stainless steel, alloy steel, aluminum, copper, and carbon steel, among others. In addition to centerless grinding, we also offer CNC honing of inner diameters to exacting tolerances and surface finishes.
- Accuracy at tolerances—to .0001—exceeding conventional machining capabilities
- State-of-the-art automated loading and CNC dresser heads
- Consistent quality in the process saves cost
We operate a full metrology lab and have an extensive amount of tools and technologies for quality analytics. Along with standard metrology tools for quality control inspection, we utilize CMMs, profilometers, air gauges, and roundness testers that perform at extreme levels of accuracy. Our centerless grinding services are certified to ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 standards, and we handle orders from low to high volume.
