The range of Sacher services also includes grinding of steel and colored metals with grinders. This type of machining includes both flat and cylindrical surface grinding, both of which are provided by the company. Grinding techniques are most commonly used for machining hardened components and for finishing metal parts, whether rolled, forged or cast. Various grinding machines are used for this, with separate devices used for surfaces, shafts and holes.
Metal grinding – abrasive machining of metals
Grinding is one of many techniques specific to the mechanical machining process. Its goal is to complete the finish and details on the workpiece and give it a smooth surface. This method is typically used in the final stages of metal cutting of flat and cylindrical surfaces or holes. During grinding, a large amount of heat is generated which must be effectively removed, as it may have a negative effect on the physical properties of the material that is being worked on.
Sacher’s machinery park is equipped with a range of professional and modern tools which are used to:
– CNC fine grinding,
– grinding of aluminum and steel,
– grinding of sheet metal and colored metals.
CNC grinding – precise grinding
With CNC control systems and the knowledge of our qualified operators, we enable automation of mechanical machining processes. CNC grinding is able to guarantee the highest precision and repeatability, so you don’t have to worry about the inconsistent appearance of a product line. Our specialists possess all the necessary skills and practical experience to ensure that they are able to carry out a project in accordance with the guidelines. Precision CNC grinding has extremely high dimensional accuracy, low and stable angle deviation and low surface roughness. There is a reason why CNC control systems are one of the most popular solutions on the market today. Thanks to them, the metal grinding is no longer associated with hours of manual work and varied appearance of the workpieces.
The professional hole grinder is one of many tools available in the Sacher machinery park. One of the most common applications of this type of machine is the precise fitting of shafts into holes. Thanks to CNC control, this process is fully repeatable, reducing the cost of large-scale production. Fine-grinding of shafts and holes minimizes the risk of damage to mechanisms and produces the desired surface finish and dimensional consistency. With the knowledge and expertise of Sacher experts, you can effectively eliminate even the finest component imperfections. This is extremely important not for aesthetics, but mechanics, as a proper finish allows them to work better with other components of the design or mechanism.
A circular shaft grinder is one of the most common technical solutions in mechanical machining of rods and rolls today. The design of this type of machine is very different from other tools that are used for grinding holes or flat surfaces. To meet our customers’ expectations, we have equipped our machinery park with not only traditional and manual tools, but above all modern and professional CNC-controlled grinding machines. Such equipment is required because of the nearly excellent process reproducibility it provides. It is also essential in optimizing serial production costs of a component and standardizing its appearance and properties.
Grinding metal surfaces
Metal surface grinding performed by qualified specialists is one of the many services available in Sacher’s offer. A modern and professional surface grinder ensures the desired surface finish. Thanks to CNC control technology the process can be automated to help optimize the cost of mass or multiple-volume production. Thanks to the knowledge and experience of our specialists and the precision and repeatability of CNC, surface grinding does not necessarily involve manual machining.
Grinding metal elements
The metal components that make up the mechanism of a given machine must be perfectly aligned. Metal grinding is one of many services that can help avoid problems with the fitting parts. In this process, heat dissipation is very important, as it can affect the physical properties of metal parts. Steel is a great example here, because it can be more resistant, more ductile or brittle depending on the alloy.
