Cylindrical OD Grinding

Midway Grinding Inc. has the expertise to provide Cylindrical OD Grinding services of the highest quality.

Our decades of experience in cylindrical grinding combined with CNC technology offers accurate and precise grinding for applications from single piece prototypes or reworks to large scale production applications with quantities in the millions per year.

Cylindrical OD grinding is ideal for parts with single or multiple diameters that need to run concentric with each other or between centers. It is also ideal for outside diameters with slots or other features that cause an interrupted cut.

Our CNC dressing units and rotary dressers can produce complicated profiles, radii and spherical radii.

Dimensional accuracy and location of critical areas are enhanced, during the grinding cycle through in-process gauging on many of our cylindrical grinders.

Midway Grinding can handle components from .050 to 9 Inches in Diameter with lengths of up to 60 Inches between centers.

We pride ourselves in using only the best cylindrical grinders on the market as you can tell from our extensive equipment list.

  • Concentricity to .0001" max
  • Ideal for multiple concentric diameters
