External & Outside Diameter Grinding

As the name suggests, outside diameter grinding, or OD grinding is a process in which the external surface of an object is ground between the centers. Here, centers refer to the end units. These centers have a point, which allows the object to rotate. When the grinding wheel comes in contact with the object, it is also made to rotate in the same direction as that of an object. Thus, the two surfaces that come in contact with each other rotate in the opposite directions. This helps reduce the chances of jam up, and helps achieve a smoother operation. At Motor & Gear Engineering Inc., we provide the best-in-class external and outside diameter grinding services to our clients. We are known to provide both, manual, as well as CNC grinding services. The CNC grinders that we use at are well-equipped with automatic grinding wheel balancing system, in-process sizing gages, and edge locator (probe).
