Fives offers a wide range of high profile grinding machines for all surface grinding needs, based on over 90 years of experience and development in the high precision grinding sector.
Surface grinding is a widely used abrasive machining process in which a spinning wheel covered in rough particles (grinding wheel) cuts chips of metallic or nonmetallic substance from a workpiece, to produce a smooth finish on flat surfaces. Surface grinding is the most common of the grinding operation. It is a finishing process that uses a rotating abrasive wheel to smooth the flat surface of metallic or nonmetallic materials, to give them a more refined look or to attain a desired surface for a functional purpose. Typical workpiece materials include cast iron and mild steel. Other materials are aluminum, stainless steel, brass, some plastics, ceramics and composite materials.
