Polishing machines are used in the metal industry to boost the longevity and quality of products and their finishes. At West Midland Grinding, our services are used by a wide range of companies in the manufacturing industry to finish their products, ultimately adding quality and value to them. We serve businesses large and small and are fully committed to adhering to the highest standards. Using the best and most reliable polishing machines in the industry, we can be counted upon to deliver the excellence that you require.
If metal products were not finished properly, they would only last for a small portion of their expected lifespan. This is because of wear and corrosion issues. Companies and organisations from industries such as electrics, aerospace, and motoring can benefit considerably from metal polishing when it comes to increasing the longevity of their products.
There are many advantages to metal polishing and other forms of finishing. A metal polishing machine can improve the function, performance and appearance of metal and can be used to treat copper, aluminum and steel surfaces to give just a few examples. Metal polishing also provides the perfect surface for alloys of stainless steel and aluminum.
Metal’s sensitivity to oxidation is a good reason to treat it with polishing machines. The way that metal reacts with oxygen and water means that rust can form, making polishing a wise course of action. Metal polishing can remove layers of oxidation and make it shine again. Some metals require different products, and different polishing machines can get different results so to discuss your requirements in detail, please get in touch and speak to one of our specialist team.
Other services we provide at West Midland Grinding include centreless grinding, cylindrical grinding, and surface grinding. Centreless grinding is one of the most popular services that we offer at West Midland Grinding. In this process, small amounts of material are taken from the outside of components to reduce them in size. With centreless grinding, tolerances and finishes of great accuracy can be achieved. This process is also extremely cost-effective.
Cylindrical grinding is another extremely popular service and is used to shape the outside surfaces of objects with tapered, straight, profiled and stepped surfaces. Though cylindrical grinders can be compared to lathes, they grind away excess metal rather than cutting it. Many clients also choose West Midland Grinding when they are in need of surface grinding for producing flat surfaces. A surface grinder can also create irregular and angular surfaces and offers far greater accuracy than any other machine tools used to generate the same results. Surface grinders are precision engineering tools, and there are four types of this tool available, which are vertical spindle and rotary table, horizontal spindle and reciprocating table, vertical spindle and reciprocating table and horizontal spindle and reciprocating table.
