Centerless Grinding Services

 

Centerless Grinding Services

Here at Parason Machine we have the capacity to grind all high performance plastic rods to any diameter while holding +/- .0002” tolerance on diameters of .750” down to .125” diameter. We will quote materials with more open tolerances, the most common being +/- .0005” which is less expensive to grind than +/- .0002”.

We can hold very tight tolerances when performing centerless grinding services

Environmental Safety

Environmental concerns are very important to us at Parason. Whenever possible we recycle the scrap from our machines to lessen the impact on landfills. Our waste machine oil is filtered and reused when possible and then disposed of according to state and federal regulations , all paperwork on file. Other chemicals used in the cleaning process are also carefully collected and disposed of via an environmental service company. In this way we are able to machine quality parts efficiently, producing the least amount of waste products possible. This helps keep recycling down to a minimum.
