Most machine shops today perform a wide range of services for their customers. However, unless you’re a very large company with national or international connections, you probably do one or two things very well, and the other things are OK. For example, you might create precision thread cutting or specialize in machining stainless steel or aluminum parts. When it comes to precision ID or internal grinding (honing), you might not have the right equipment and tools for the job. That’s where a precision grinding shop can be your best business partner. Let’s explore some of the many reasons to outsource this kind of work.
Perhaps you make precision parts. This could include bearings, connecting rods, camshafts, gears, clutch components, or manifolds. These parts need high-tolerance machining. If you don’t have the time or equipment for the job, it’s easier to send them to a local shop that specializes in precision CNC internal grinding. They’ll make sure your parts meet the specifications they have to meet.
Increasing Your Shop Efficiency
If you’re not set up for precision honing, why take on the added expense and headaches? You may have to buy expensive equipment, and if your shop is already full, you might need to think about moving to a new facility. There’s a better solution to this problem, and it’s as close as your local grinding shop. You don’t have to go into debt to make a large investment. There’s no need to hire more people and pay out more money in benefits and wages. You save all these costs when you outsource your internal grinding needs.
Choosing a Shop
The best shops for precision honing work specialize in grinding. They can work with many kinds of metals and even do plastic work. Also, look for a shop with many years in the business.
