How OD and ID Grinding Works
Inside diameter (ID) and outside diameter (OD) grinding both utilize a grinding wheel, with the workpiece rotated in the opposite direction. Often, ID and OD grinding is performed by a machine called a universal grinder, which can perform both of these functions for low-volume orders. For higher volumes, separate ID and OD grinding machines are optimal. ID and OD grinders are used to grind grooves, diameters, tapers, shoulders, and fillets on cylindrical parts.
ID grinding involves grinding inside an object; the grinding wheel is smaller than the conical or cylindrical workpiece in order to fit inside. Other names for ID grinding include internal grinding, bore grinding, inner diameter grinding, and inside diameter grinding. Inside diameter grinding is often used to fabricate roller and ball bearings, rocker arm rollers, and automotive and military components.
OD grinding is used when the external surface of a cylindrical workpiece needs precision grinding. Outside diameter grinding is used for automotive and aerospace components, axles, drill bits, gears, hydraulics, and a number of other industrial applications.
OD and ID grinding can be used for a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, brass, aluminum, titanium, carbide, bronze, and copper. Our skilled machinists are experienced working with pieces that require precise detail and fine finishes. When accuracy is a must, you can count on B&D Precision to get the job done right.
