Internal & External Diameter Grinding

Manually operated by our experienced tradesmen.

At New Metal Surfaces, we are leaders in surface engineering and to complement our coating services, we specialise in internal and external diameter grinding. Cylindrical grinding is a process undertaken to finish grind the outside diameter of a cylindrical part, resulting in a high quality finish, accurate tolerances and typically providing a better surface finish than fine machining.

Our grinders are manually operated by our experienced tradesmen and are not CNC or machine-automated, providing the exceptional quality one would expect from handcrafted processes. Our workshop uses cylindrical internal and external grinders and we also diamond grind internal and external diameters. We utilise semi-automated and manual equipment, as well as precision ceramic and diamond abrasives, allowing us to finish any coating or component materials to the highest specifications.

We have polishing capabilities available, giving us the ability to superfinish and belt finish our coatings when a mirror finish is required. We can grind with either silicon carbide or diamond wheels, depending on the coating that will be applied and the desired finish. Examples of typical applications processed include hydraulic rods and also various gearbox shafts.
