Cylindrical Grinding 101

This particular type of grinding involves the process of grinding machined circular or cylindrical parts. The idea is to round out the inside and outside of these pieces as much as possible. The inside or inner diameter as well as the outside or outer diameter must be machined with utmost precision, which is something we provide here at Minnesota Grinding.

Highly skilled and certified craftsmen operate state of the art CNC cylindrical grinding machines to achieve the desired size. By offering inside diameter (ID) and outside diameter (OD) services, machinists are able to work with a variety of shapes that have a central axis rotation including cylinders and shafts.
