Beyond some of the most up-to-date and versatile machining capabilities, there is a wealth of grinding support available at AccuRounds. In order to fully serve the needs of our customers, grinding has been an integral element in our process capacity since day one. As with the variety of machining options offered to our customers, there is a complement of centerless, cylindrical, and CNC grinders. Surface grinders and hones round out the numerous finishing options available to our engineering staff. With alternatives like these located in-house, AccuRounds is able to produce critical finishes and tolerances that can™t be conventionally or efficiently machined.
Today's precision components frequently need heat treating to achieve the functionality or durability required to perform optimally. Exposure to extreme temperatures generally distorts or changes a part dimensionally. To bring parts into print tolerance, grinding after heat treating is often essential. Even when heat treating is not necessary, having the grinding capacity to perform certain finishing steps often allows the previous machining operations to run faster, establishing a robust process. This capability saves you money and provides your assembly team with a quality product.
Out of necessity, some shops might try to produce difficult surfaces in less than optimal fashion. Some shops are forced to sub-contract out these services. AccuRounds prefers in-house control of what are often the most critical functional dimensions of a customer's product.
We can grind to these specifications:
- Diameters from .005" to 6.0"
- Tolerances to .000020"
- Lengths to 12'
- Finishes to 3 Ra
