Grinding is a machining operation where a material is removed utilizing a mechanized abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, etc. to realize fine finish tolerances and surface finishes
Precision grinding is a form of grinding that concentrates on accuracy and is used across a wide range of industries. The grinding manufacturing process uses a specialist spinning wheel that consists of abrasive particles which removes material from the workpiece.
A CNC grinding machine is a precision performance tool that uses a rotating wheel to cut material away from metal.
General and/or rare applications sometimes require modified tooling. Personalized tools can be designed to a specific need and are a more cost-effective alternative to more expensive new or factory specific tools.
Sharpening is the method of producing or refining 2 perpendicular axis into a converging "Apex" creating an edge of appropriate shape on a tool or implement designed for cutting. Sharpening is done by removing material on an implement with an abrasive substance harder than the material of the implement, followed sometimes by processes to polish/hone the sharp surface to increase smoothness.
We use a special wax coating on the sharpened edge of the tool to protect it from damage during transport and storage.
It is completely automatic in the grinding process. A computer and probe is used to get precise measurements.
