ID/OD Grinding and Surface Grinding

Industrial Tool and Die, Inc. has 42 years experience in the precision grinding of shafts, cylinders, cylindrical bores and flat surfaces using their high performance and fast ID/OD Grinder and surface grinding machines. Our shop is equipped with a Jones & Shipman ID/ OD Grinder with a 10" x 18" bed size.

This large format machine supports longer cylindrical parts than many centerless grinding machines, yet yields very close relationships between diameters. The result is extremely precise tooling components that Industrial Tool and Die, Inc employs to produce their niche of high end molds, tool, dies, jigs and fixtures.

ID/OD Grinders can grind diameters, shoulders, tapers, fillets, grooves, etc. on the inside or outside of cylindrical parts to tolerances of up to +/- 0.0005 and extremely fine finishes. This precision grinding and finishing capability allows Industrial Tool and Die, Inc. to manufacture very high performance, accurate tools for Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Commercial and Electrical Connector Industry customers.

Advanced surface grinding capabilities such as those found at Industrial Tool and Die, Inc. are crucial to a modern tool shop. Our 8 modern surface grinders can quickly remove material from even the hardest tools steels, producing extremely flat and precise surfaces meant for developing high-end mold and die parts and inserts that fit together perfectly. The better the parts of a tool fit, the higher quality the resulting part, and the closer to net final shape it is. Industrial Tool and Die, Inc.'s precision tools can produce intricate parts with little or no flash or other material to be removed in secondary operations. This keeps our customer's manufacturing and component costs to an absolute minimum.
