Cylindrical Grinding

Before grinding a tool, a tool blank often needs to be cylindrically ground down to a certain diameter, and with stepped features. ANCA’s CPX Linear is a machine dedicated to this purpose.


iGrind includes a dedicated cylindrical grinding package. This example demonstrates peel grinding to achieve drill diameter before remaining drill grinding operations are completed. From common size blanks, drills of 0.1mm increment can be prepared. During cylindrical grinding, the tool is supported using a special tailstock mounted on the travelling steady.
