CNC (computer numerical control) grinding, one type of CNC machining service, utilizes a rotating grinding wheel with high speed to remove material, ideal for CNC machining of hard metals. The CNC grinding machines usually work in two directions: longitudinally or transversely.
Despite one of the CNC machining services, CNC grinding is also utilized for surface finishing to improve the surfaces on turned components at X Rapid Technologies. We strive to provide high-quality customized CNC grinding services within a quick turn time scale.
Tolerances depend on the geometry of CNC machining components. There is a tolerance of +/- 0.05 mm in general. Higher tolerances are available on request for all CNC machining services.
CNC grinding prototypes can be as machined, de-burred, painted, silk screened, electroplated, anodized, etc. It all depends on your needs for CNC machining services. All those surface treatments available to metal CNC machining components can also be applied to CNC grinding parts.
· High surface quality: CNC grinding brings low surface roughness and high accuracy of shape and dimension. Different wheel speeds can customize the surface finishing.
· High efficiency: Fast cycle times of CNC grinding machines ensure high efficiency. They can also work longer without breaks.
· Tight tolerances: The precision of CNC machining components by CNC grinding can be very high.
· Just less skilled people and limited supervision are needed to execute CNC grinding projects among CNC machining services.
CNC grinding is perfectly suited to produce rounded-shaped CNC machining components, such as shafts, rollers, valves, ball bearings, shrouds, vanes, fairings, panels, etc. It is also widely applied for surface treatment for parts by other CNC machining services to achieve super finishing such as mirror surfaces on flat and square surfaces.
Aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, stainless steel, steel alloys, magnesium, etc.
Our surface quality of CNC grinded components that can be achieved is very high. Sometimes, they even don’t need extra surface treatment.
With the latest CNC grinding machines and experienced technicians, we deliver high-precision grinded parts in a repeatable and identical manner.
Apart from instant quotes and short lead time, we push our limits to meet your time demands for all types of CNC machining services.
To make CNC machining components via CNC grinding, please send us files in CAD, STP, STEP, IGS, or X_T format.
The lead time for creating a one-off CNC grinding prototype is usually no less than 3 days. It varies for different projects. We will estimate the lead time during the quoting period.
Sure. We have served the international markets for over 10 years and delivered over 100,000 CNC machined components globally. Witnessing numerous CNC grinding prototypes going to the global markets is an honor and delight for us.
In addition to CNC grinding service, we majorly provide CNC milling, CNC turning, and CNC cutting services to process all kinds of CNC machining components.
Of course. You can look at our CNC machining components on our Case Studies page for CNC machining services. Or contact us for some pictures of CNC machining components.
