Surface Grinders

Grinding is a machining process that takes a very light “cut” using abrasive media—typically an abrasive grinding wheel. Grinding wheels with different grit sizes achieve rougher or finer grinding passes, according to the needs of the application. When precise accuracy and/or surface finish are required, grinding is often used as a finishing process after some other metalworking operation. Grinding is also an effective process for machining workpiece materials that are too hard for milling or turning. Grinders for round parts include cylindrical and centerless grinders. Grinders for flat surfaces are called surface grinders. Form grinders move the work and/or the wheel in various axes to grind surfaces that are precisely contoured. Grinders used to create and sharpen cutting tools are called tool & cutter grinders. Definition Provided by “Modern Machine Shop”

Chevalier Machinery Inc.

Chevalier is the Premier Surface Grinder Manufacturer in the World. The secret of Chevalier’s success is rooted on the technology that goes into the machines’ spindles: they are all assembled and extensively load-tested in-house before they are installed in each machine. Chevalier takes pride in putting the extra effort in manufacturing its own spindles.

For the CNC grinders, users prefer Chevalier’s easy to use CNC conversational control system which, along with the factory pre-programmed canned cycles, allow the operator to use the machine even with minimum programming experience.

The integration of Chevalier’s Smart III control system in its new line of double column grinders means having heavy duty CNC creepfeed and profile machines that feature automatic wheel dressing with compensation, dress-while-you-grind capability and grinding simulation mode.
