Our Precision Grinding & Machining Services
The importance of accuracy in precision grinding and machining is crucial as grinding is used to finish projects to display a high surface quality and accuracy of space and dimension. The accuracy of dimensions in grinding is scarily small. In most applications, the finishing operations often involve little grinding at roughly 0.25 to 0.50mm of depth. Despite a small precision grinding and machining job being arguably similar to a touch-up job, it has a large impact in the finishing project and cannot be ignored. However, there are larger grinding jobs that involve the high volume removal of metal quite quickly. At Wilcox High Velocity, regardless the length and size of your project, we never sacrifice precision.
Benefits Of Precision Grinding And Machining
The combination of precision grinding and machining are engineered to form special and sophisticated components. This process is widely used in a variety if industries with its great advantages. Several large sized projects often need small and precise pieces of materials to get the job done or to get the desired effect. As such, if you are looking into invest in a large project, using a precision grinding service will be most beneficial to you. By investing in precision grinding, you will be more efficient in completing your project. The overall advantages of precision grinding regardless of what grinding method is used can be summed into the following:
- Cost Effective
- Increased Productivity
- Produce Very Fine Surface Finishes
- Simple And Safe
- Sharpen Existing Tools
- Create Custom Cutting Tools
- Easy Monitoring
First, precision grinding brings out the best in your materials. In other words, it maximizes its potential. Precision grinding extracts almost everything from the given raw material which reduces the amount of waste produced. With an increase in production and a minimal amount of waste, this will generate more profits. The absence of precision grinding will require you to manufacture smaller complex components that need you to allocate a significant amount of effort and time. By doing precision grinding manually, you risk the component of not fitting precisely into another material. With a precision grinding service, parts will have maximum consistency and manufactured quickly. Wilcox’s precision grinding machines are of optimal quality and has the ability to produce more parts from raw materials in a timely manner.
As precision grinding allows for very fine furnishings, it will be able to produce the necessary touch-up your project needs for that fine polished finish. We take great care in ensuring your safety. As such, our precision components are always safe for you to work with. Working with dull tools can be a hassle and frustrating when the desired effect is not and cannot be achieved. With precision grinding, your existing tools can be sharpened for optimal work benefits. This also ties in with creating your own cutting tools. Our machines are easy to monitor. How does this benefit you? With easy monitoring, this allows for any improvisation if necessary.
Our Grinding Services
Our Machinists are experts in precision and cylindrical grinding. Whether your project requires a smooth, flat top, or a smooth rounded surface, our experts have the tools and qualifications to meet the needs of your project. We don’t take heavy machining lightly. Your project is guaranteed to be completed on time and within your given parameters. Here are some of the grinding services we offer:
- Cylindrical Grinding
- Surface Grinding
- Jig Grinding
If your project requires highly restrictive or precise diameters, cylindrical grinding is optimal for tight tolerance and for adding those fine and polished finishing touches. Cylindrical grinding has been used in a variety of industries such as automotive to military applications. For the best precision results, cylindrical grinding is your best option. Surface grinding is a common grinding operation that specializes in those finishing touches. It is useful for flat objects and obtains a refined look to serve a functional purpose in your project. Jig grinding is used for those complex shapes and holes that will get you exact precision. Like with most precision grinders, jig grinding ensures a high degree of accuracy with a great smooth finish upon completion.
