Precision Grinding

There are several manufacturing processes vital to the production of finished goods from raw material. Most of these methods create new shapes and forms by removing material from a work piece’s surface. One such important practice is grinding, a technique that removes metal with speed and precision to create a quality final product.

Manufacturers of large quantities of parts or components with complex geometries can overcome slow or inefficient grinding processes with assistance from KRC Machining Solutions. We specialize in the design, construction and implementation of high-output automated machines that resolve manufacturing bottlenecks.

During grinding, material is removed by small abrasive particles embedded into a grinding wheel, belt or cylinder. A grinder is often used to trim small amounts of workpiece, allowing for smooth and accurate tolerances of 0.001” or less. This finishing method is highly versatile and capable of accomplishing the following processes:

  • Polishing
  • Dimensionaling
  • Mill and tool mark removal
  • Corrosion cleaning
  • Deburring
  • Edge breaking
