We remanufacture grinders completely in-house and we can design a turnkey solution including parts handling and integrated gaging. We can provide process verification and operator training as well. Our specialty is in centerless grinding.
We repair virtually all makes and models of precision spindles including drawbar verification, dynamic balancing and we can design/provide custom tooling and spindle upgrades.
We design and build new custom spindles for most any application. We utilize many spindle body types and specialize in tooling integration with performance certification.
We manufacture patented Holo-Rol® Bearings which we use in select spindles designed and built in our facility. Holo-Rol® Bearings offer high radial stiffness with very low radial run out.
As part of our process development capability, we perform parts grinding for our customers including bar grinding, through-feed grinding, in-feed grinding, form grinding, crush grinding, taper grinding, screw captivation and polishing.
