Vertical-Spindle Surface Grinding
Vertical-spindle surface grinding is often thought of as exclusively a roughing operation. While the process is a common first operation on a casting, forging, or weldment, it is also used for fine finishing applications that demand close control of flatness and surface finish. Because the abrasive wheel3 on those machines are nearly always wider than the work, they are not mounted on cross slides or other devices for the purpose of traversing the wheel across the work. The elimination of those mechanisms contributes to the accuracy of the machine tool.
