What is Centerless Grinding?
Centerless Grinding is an OD (Outside Diameter) grinding process. This process is unique in that the workpiece (component) is not mechanically held in position but rests on a support blade. The rotation of the component is controlled by the regulating wheel (control wheel). The larger work wheel (grinding or polishing wheel) rotating at a higher speed achieves the required stock removal and surface finish.
Centreless grinding process is ideally suited to applications requiring high production rates of cylindrical components. These include but are not limited to the manufacturing of: taper roller bearings, chrome bar, shafts, tubing, hypodermic needles etc.
Centerless grinding plays a key role in theautomotiveandaerospaceindustries.Centreless grinding has evolved to include three different forms: thru-feed, in-feed and end-feed centreless grinding & polishing.
