Precision Surface Grinding for Metal Parts
Surface grinding has long been Petersen Precision’s specialty. Most often used to add a high surface finish to parts that require a high degree of flatness or parallelism, or those with very tight or specific angles, our precision surface grinding expertise enables us to maintain tolerances of ±0.0001” and provide surface finishes up to 8 RMS, depending on the material being ground.
Generally performed any time from the middle to the end of the production process, precision surface grinding usually provides the parts’ final surface finish.
The Surface Grinding Experts
Petersen Precision utilizes a variety of grinding media and cutting wheel types, along with horizontal spindle grinding machines and CNC downfeed control, to provide the perfect surface finish for your parts. Our expert team knows what options work best for the material and surface finish requirements, and will adjust the technology used to meet the needs of your unique project.
To ensure superior precision and repeatability throughout even the highest volume production runs, all fixtures and tooling used in our surface grinding processes are designed and fabricated in-house.
Any metal or metal alloy can be processed via surface grinding. The only limitations are related to surface finish requirements, as higher surface finishes require harder materials.
Flexibility for High-Volume Orders
Most of our surface grinding machines are dedicated to customer part production, with the remainder used in tool and die making. However, we can transition some or all of our tool and die surface grinders to part production to scale our production capabilities as needed. This enables us to complete high-volume projects as quickly and efficiently as possible. This flexibility is an advantage for us and our customers.
