What is ID Grinding?
ID grinding — also sometimes to referred to as inside diameter grinding, inner diameter grinding, or bore grinding — is the process of finishing the inner surface of a workpiece. For any kind of component that has a bore or smooth interior surface, the use of a quality ID grinding machine and skilled Operator is a must. Other OD grinding machines simply are not built or designed to accomplish this task. There are various pieces of equipment that can successfully achieve the ID grind required for your components depending on the unique parameters of the job. These include:
- A Hone
- A Chucking Type Internal Grinder
- A Planetary Internal Grinder
Whatever kind of ID grinding your components call for, the Operators at Asteroid Precision are some of the most well trained and high-performing Operators in the world and can choose and execute the proper precision grinding required for the best results.
