Grinders are powerful and versatile machine tools that are capable of grinding and cutting through materials as tough as metal and concrete. They can also shape and polish such materials, and advancements in technology over the years have made them even more dynamic and efficient.

A bench grinder is a grinder that is mounted on a workbench and normally has two wheels. Bench grinders are not normally used on a daily basis but can play a pivotal role in rounding over thread ends and sharpening tools.

Right angle grinders are used frequently for a wide range of purposes. These grinders take their name from the way that the grinding wheels are located at right angles at the shaft of the tool. Grinding wheels are commonly found in grinding machines and are expandable wheels of abrasive compounds. They are made with either aluminum or solid steel, and various different profiles are available.

Die grinders are used for a variety of purposes including not just grinding but polishing, honing and sanding too. Die grinders are similar to rotary tools but are normally more powerful and heavy-duty. Whilst rotary tools are normally electric, die grinders are usually pneumatically-driven. Die grinders are used for activities including shaping and engraving parts.

Angle grinders are also referred to as disc grinders and side grinders. They are handheld power tools used for grinding and polishing. Angle grinders are powered in different ways and can either be operated via compressed air, petrol engines or electric motors. They normally have a side-handle so they can be operated with two hands as well as an adjustable guard. Some angle grinders are capable of being used as sanders. Angle grinders are often found in machine shops, on construction sites, and in metal fabrication factories.
