Industrial Precision Grinding Brings Metal Stock into Spec

Industrial precision grinding comprises an important aspect of the CNC machining operations that Titletown Manufacturing performs for OEMs throughout Wisconsin. This step in the manufacturing process brings rough metal stock to its final dimensions, with tolerances within .0002" of spec.

"We have expanded our industrial precision grinding capabilities to handle larger metal pieces such as those used in the production of frames," said Dan Hilliard, co-owner of Titletown Manufacturing. "The large parts required for some machine assemblies still depend on the exacting outputs we can achieve through our industrial precision grinding operations."

"Titletown Manufacturing's spacious facility provides the ideal environment for safe and efficient industrial precision grinding services," said a company spokesperson. "Our skilled workforce fine-tunes metal stock into dimensions and finishes appropriate for the final application. Industries served include defense, material handling equipment and machinery and machines used in the energy sector, among others.

Titletown Manufacturing performs three different types of industrial precision grinding operations depending on the size, shape and targeted portion of the stock. It is common for machines to include parts requiring multiple CNC machining operations prior to assembly.

Surface grinding is the technique most often used on smaller pieces and typically takes a part down to its final dimensions. These pieces usually are 12" x 24" or less. Blanchard grinding (also known as rotary surface grinding) is an industrial precision grinding method Titletown uses to remove material from stock that has large surface areas. Its Blanchard grinder features a 40" diameter table to hold the stock in place.

Finally, outside diameter (OD) grinding is a method specific to cylindrical stock. The Titletown team can bring these pieces down to within .0002" of the target diameter with finishes as fine as 8 Ra (roughness average). The company can perform OD grinding on stock as large as 95" long and 16" in diameter.
