Why We Consider Grinding as a Secondary Process to CNC Machining

At Kremin, we attempt to machine all of our customers’ parts complete on CNC machining centers, but there can be limitations. That’s where our precision grinding services come into play. Learn more about how we use our grinding capabilities now.

“Hi, I’m Trevor Perry, Engineering Manager at Kremin Inc.

In this video, we’re going to talk about our in-house grinding capabilities, and when we use them to meet our customers’ requirements.

We attempt to machine all our customers parts complete on CNC machining centers, but sometimes we just simply can’t. There may be a dimensional or finish requirement we just can’t achieve. In those cases, we’ll use one of three forms of grinding to complete the parts: OD grinding, jig grinding, or surface grinding.

Here’s how we utilize our grinding capabilities in-house: our surface grinder is typically used for grinding features flat or parallel to another feature. Our OD grinding is typically used for grinding ODs of shafts, or tapers, with parts held between two centers. Jig grinding is primarily used for ID features which require precision tolerance, fit, or location. It may be also used on occasion for grinding round features eccentric to another feature.

Although we can and do offer precision grinding services, they are secondary services. We focus on the same materials that we machine in our CNC machining centers. Our capabilities lend themselves to lower quantity job runs.
