|Production Disc Grinding|
|Double Disc grinding is a high production, highly accurate method of producing dual flat and parallel surfaces simultaneously in stampings, castings, and sintered metal parts. While the process can be extremely cost effective because of its speed and precision, success can only be achieved with the proper set-up and the correct abrasive. Using Jowitt & Rodger's abrasives offers significant advantages for Disc Grinding.|
|Disc Grinding can vary from high production rates exceeding 30,000 parts per hour to only a few parts per hour on large parts involving heavy stock removal. Regardless of the production rates, there are some peculiarities of disc grinding that differentiate it from other processes, such as cylindrical and plane surface grinding. First, the face of the wheel is used. While this creates a distinct advantage in terms of accuracy and productivity, it causes some unique problems.
