Rotary Grinding

What Is Rotary Grinding?

Rotary grinding is a finishing process to refine and smooth a piece of steel. Unlike surface grinding, rotary grinders produce a beautiful rotary pattern, though the tolerance isn’t as tight as a surface ground piece.

Note: Tolerance refers to how close a piece of produced metal is to its stated specs (thickness, parallelism, etc.).

How It Works

Rotary grinding is highly productive given how much of the grinding wheel contacts the surface area of the steel being refined. For each table rotation, the entire surface to be ground comes in contact with the grinding wheel.
