Tube Centerless Grinding

We perform tube centerless grinding to grind high quality tubing products of both straight tubes and irregular tube shapes and bent tubing.

As a response to the high demand for high quality tubings products, we further improve our centerless grinding operations to meet the various requirements set by our customers. We perform centerless grinding that can effectively finish straight tube even of various shapes as well as bent workpieces.

Tube centerless grinding is eminently used to give accurate finish and clean polish to tubings. Tubes are to be machined and ground to get rid of mark or scoring and to polish it for surface finishing. Grinding cylindrical tubes may be smooth running but it also highly requires a high degree of manual skills and solid experience to achieve a smooth surface and precision straightness.

We have several heavy-duty grinding machines which can grind and work tubes both straight and curved. A fine finish is achieved through using abrasive belts. Stainless steel tubes usually require grain finish same as aluminum tubes. Grinding process must prepare tube’s surface for plating and coating in order to remove imperfections on the surface and smooth it so scratched and all other imperfections can be undetectable after coating and plating are applied.

Manual grinding tubes can be quite difficult but semi-automated and automated tube grinding can speed up the job – which often effectively create safer cleaner work environment.The advantage of centerless grinding is it can help put a grain surface finish on straight tubes as well as on those tubes with irregular shapes and those bent tubing.

Our high production throughput for tube centerless grinding systems can provide high production throughput at minimized operating costs.

This is an additional machining capability we offer for our customers to improve competitiveness and efficiency along with optimal custom-tailored solutions and comprehensive service.

Precision Straightening

Precision straightening for returning bar’s desired shape after stress and distortion or warping caused by heating & welding, and cooling.

We are highly capable of performing precision straightening services for our customers’ request. The eminent request is for straightening bar stock and tubing products its tightest diameter tolerance, precision straightness and roundness, and surface polish per foot.

Essential machining operations are involved in the conjunction with straightening process which includes centerless grinding, saw cutting, and polishing for the preparation of the materials to precision applications. Straightening comes from the principle of metal’s expansion when heated and its contraction when cooled.

Plastic deformation range is the resulting tension of restricting a well defined and heated section of a workpiece to expand. On the other hand, controlled cooling helps contract the metal more than it being expanded when heated. If it’s performed correctly, the material will be straightened out of its existing distortions.

Precision straightening is a rigid process in which results would only depend on how small the heated area is and how quick working temperature is obtained.

There are a lot of factors to be considered during the straightening course which involve:

  • Fixturing methods
  • Heat area
  • Metal thickness
  • Cooling rate
  • Metal type
  • Fuel gas

Precision straightening is highly useful as it returns the desired shape of a material after heat and welding leaves stresses and subsequent cooling distorts and warps the material.

Straightening is one of our highly essential machining operations we perform for our customers and the large industries we serve like medical, automotive, aerospace, and power generation, especially for shafting applications. We are capable of straightening and processing nickel alloys, carbon steel, titanium, and precious metals.

OD Grinding

OD Grinding (outside diameter) best applied to external part removal for optimum operation, allowing great surface finish and polish.

We boast our best surface grinding capabilities for the completion of your manufacturing goals. In line with our aims to offer you with our great machining solutions, we also include OD grinding technique to our operations.

OD (Outside Diameter) Grinding has been one of the most used grinding techniques just like centerless grinding which is highly sought in the automotive industry for camshafts and crankshafts.

To achieve different desired finish by customers, OD grinding technique is divided into four different variants of grinding operation such as the following:

  • Plunge grinding [in–feed centerless grinding]
  • Centreless outside diameter grinding
  • Through-feed grinding or thrufeed centerless grinding
  • Centreless longitudinal grinding

This grinding technique is occurring on the outer surface of the workpiece between the “centers”. These centers are end units used to hold the workpiece at each end, allowing the piece to be rotated. The grinding wheel also rotates in same motion with the workpiece but in opposite direction, allowing rigid part removal for a smoother operation with less jam up times.
There involved in the operation the presence of super abrasive wheels as well as high precision servo control that make it possible for achieving that very tight tolerance and perfect diametrical dimensions among ground bars used for camshaft and crankshaft application.

The process in OD grinding is sequential but performed at a very rapid speed. Such operation is highly beneficial towards cost-savings at highly reduced work handling times. Thus, for rigid automotive operations that require effective machining solution but at a cost-effective price, OD grinding solutions are best applied in this field of application.

Grinding Thin Wall Tubing

Grinding Thin Wall tubing

Grinding thin wall tubings can be quite complex but we incorporate our own machining methods to still meet your tolerance requirements.

Backed by our highly productive and superabrasive grinding machinery, we can provide precision grinding processes for products ranging from sizes and forms including round bars, rods, thin wall tubings, as well as complex parts.

Grinding Thin Wall TubingFor thin wall tubing products, we can be capable of grinding them up to their finest and to their tightest diametrical tolerances especially for materials like stainless steel, alloy steel, carbon steel, and aluminum. Optimum grinding is performed by the abrasive removal of necessary parts of material and is produced stress and burr free without metallurgical damage. Shape distortion, residual stresses, and surface roughness are measured on thin wall tubings of different nodule counts.

In some cases, grinding thin wall tubings can be quite complex. Their tensile residual stresses are very prone on the surface. In addition, the depth of their profile decreases as they become compressive. Distortion can also increase when the nodule count and depth of cut increase while the work speed decreases. A perfectly implemented hone can be the solution to the challenge. Floating and fixed hones can be used and both have advantages. Floating hone can be used to do several internal works while fixed hone can help the bore maintain its “trueness”.

We incorporate the use of CNC solutions to our grinding processes to achieve products’ desired quality in terms of precision roundness and diameter tolerance.

Our operations for grinding thin wall tubing products entail the use of In-feed grinding to prevent variations in surface configurations from a worn out tooling due to the steel material hardness.

Grinding thin wall tubing products can be used in applications requiring condense, seamless tubes such as:

  • Role condenser tubes for heating
  • Thermal and nuclear power stations
  • Chemical processing plants
  • Medical
  • Foods and Candy
  • Electronics
  • Toys and crafts
  • Pneumatic
  • Hydraulic
  • Process applications

We perform different machining processes for a wide variety of industries and customers we serve with regards to top quality and standard steel engineering.
