Centerless Grinding by Laurel Wire Co.
Centerless grinding is a machining process where the part is at the center of two rotating wheels. These wheels are abrasive, and they remove material from the part. One of the grinding wheels is fixed while rotating, which allows the force on the part to direct downwards. At Laurel Wire Co., we offer through-feed centerless grinding services, an operation that can produce precise part features and high-volume production. The process requires two grinding wheels to be used, one regulating wheel and a grinding wheel. The regulating wheel is used to control the force and feed rate of the part, while the grinding wheel grinds it down.
The grinding action of this wheel has a higher linear speed than the part once the point of contact occurs. On the other hand, the second wheel is designed to provide lateral pressure to the part. At the same time, it has a rough or rubber-bonded abrasive that traps the part.
