Centerless Grinding

Centerless Grinding

Centerless grinding is a manufacturing service that has played a major role in the success of our company. This important process is used when tight dimensional accuracy and low workpiece surface roughness are demanded. Centerless grinding is one of the most widely used grinding methods in the industry, which is why the Lockrey Grinding Department has invested in over 3 centerless grinder stations.

Our experienced machinists can produce intricate shapes and profiles on long or short parts, grind thin parts, grind-to-form parts and grind a wide range of part types. We offer the most precise and reliable methods for the production of close tolerance parts. Capacities up to 4″ diameter x 76″ long.

Centerless Grinding Benefits:

High Throughput

High-throughput computing (HTC) refers to the process of using many computing resources over long periods of time to accomplish ideal fabrication results. In this case, centerless grinding is considered to be this type of process. HTC optimizes production and is advantageous to our customers.
