Success in machining operations, such as bar grinding, doesn’t solely depend on skills or facilities. Although these are critical aspects of the process, it’s also essential to consider the machine accessories and tools.
Accessories and Centerless Bar Grinding Machine
Sophistication shouldn’t just be limited to the machine. Productivity and multi-functionality are also crucial. How can all of these be achieved?
Of course, skills, preventative maintenance, equipment, and tools are always part of the process. However, the proper implementation of machine equipment may also play a role.
Machine tools and accessories such as outboard supports, ejectors, and supporting rollers should be involved. These make the operation successful and much more effective in centerless grinding. Using these accessories and operator-assisted devices makes the work more efficient.
It improves the grinding application and achieves the required tolerance in every bar. In all kinds of centerless grinding operations, whether through-feed or in-feed, operators consider these tools necessary for optimum part removal with controlled bar straightness.
Proper Setting and Attachment of Bar Grinding Machine
In-feed Bar Grinding
Machine accessories and attachments shouldn’t be ignored if you’re looking for fewer practice times but with exacting diameter tolerance in every in-feed grinding operation.
These tools make set-up and the process more efficient and make it even more possible to gain fast machining production. Grinding small part diameters and even out-of-round parts are highly complex and require attachments to hold the workpiece in the proper place.

This makes achieving excellent tolerance and roundness up to even .0002″ in 56″ length possible.
Combining those necessary attachments enables both wheels (regulating wheel and grinding wheel) to use the “Twin-Grip” mounting, essentially helpful in eliminating and resisting wheel-separating wheel pressure even under heavy loads.
Aside from proper placement and controlled gap, this mounting is critical and essential in providing maximum rigidity between spindles, affecting the consistency of part geometry.
