Definition of Centerless Grinding

Centerless grinding, a method of material removal through grinding, is similar to centered grinding except for the absence of the spindle. It has high through-put, as a large number of parts can be manufactured in a short time.

During centerless grinding, the workpiece is set up between the regulating wheel and grinding wheel and is supported by the work blade. Both wheels are rotated in the same direction. The work rest is located between the wheels. The work is placed upon the work rest and the regulating wheel is fed forward, forcing the workpiece against the grinding wheel. The axial movement of the workpiece past the grinding wheel is obtained by tilting the regulating wheel at a slight angle from horizontal. An angular adjustment of 0 to 8 or 10 degrees is provided in the machine for this purpose.
