eMachineShop makes it easy to design and order custom parts with surface grinding.
The process creates a precise uniform flat surface.
Surface grinding is often used for machine tools, reference surfaces, jig plates, optical platforms, research devices, etc.
Flatness typically ranges from .0001 to .002 inch. A surface grinding machine uses a table that moves the workpiece back and forth under a grinding wheel. The workpiece is often passed under the grinding wheel multiple times. Grinding wheels are made precise using diamond dressers. Coolant is often applied during the process. The workpiece is usually held using a magnetic chuck.
