Thrufeed & Bar Grinding Services

Thrufeed grinding is a production machining process. The thrufeed grinding technique involves two wheels—a larger grinding wheel and a small regulating wheel, with the center consisting of a support structure. The workpiece is placed in the machine where the wheels then pull it through, grinding the surface to specifications along the way. Thrufeed grinding is widely regarded as one of the most efficient grinding processes as it minimizes downtime while still producing a quality finish.

Centerless Technology has decades of experience with thrufeed grinding services, allowing us to grind straight bars and parts that adhere to consistent dimensional tolerances and quality standards.

Grinding Services for Any Application

Our grinding services are extremely versatile and can benefit applications across many industries.

Thrufeed grinding can remove off-numbered lobing from a bar or shaft. In addition to having broader applications than many other grinding methods, thrufeed grinding features additional benefits, such as:

  • Smoother surface finishes resulting from tight, precise surface tolerances.
  • Cost efficiency. Thrufeed grinding takes less time than comparative grinding methods, increasing the speed of the production process and reducing associated costs such as labor.

Thanks to the versatility afforded by thrufeed grinding, our services are preferred by clients in a broad range of industries. Bar grinding is commonly used to create automotive components such as pistons and rollers. However, because thrufeed grinding produces extremely precise finishes, there are a broad range of uses for any customer who needs cylindrical parts crafted to high degrees of accuracy.

Other common industries that use thrufeed grinding include:

  • Military
  • Medical
  • Aerospace
  • Industrial
