The Advantages of Surface Grinders

Friday, June 04, 2021

Surface grinders are commonly used in machine shops for finish work. These grinders utilize a rotating grinding wheel to produce a smooth, uniform surface on metallic or non-metallic objects with an incredible degree of precision. There are many benefits to using surface grinders.


Surface grinding can be performed on a wide variety of materials, including materials that are abrasive or hard, and metallic or non-metallic. This versatility makes surface grinding a useful technology, and provides advantages over other finishing options like planing or milling.

Our surface grinders are also able to handle materials of varying sizes. We can accommodate grinding lengths up to 32 inches, and grinding widths up to 16 inches.


Surface grinding can be performed with a high degree of accuracy. High-quality machines can grind to an accuracy of 0.0001 inches, and can reliably produce pieces within precise dimensions.

Integrated chucks help to hold materials perfectly in place during the grinding operation to assure a high-quality product. Both metallic and non-metallic materials may be securely locked for grinding.


Surface grinders are able to produce materials with a precise, high-quality finish. It is hard to beat the finish that can be produced with a quality surface grinder.
