What is a Cylindrical Grinder?

A cylindrical grinder is used to apply different shapes to the external face of an object. The shape of the object can take any form, as long as it has at least one stable axis of rotation. As the grinder spins the object along this axis. There are four requirements that the grinder must meet, in terms of function. As listed below.

  • The object being shaped must rotate all the time it is being worked on.
  • And the grinding wheel also has to rotate continuously while work is in progress.
  • The grinding wheel needs to be able to move forward and backwards, towards or away from the object being worked on.
  • The grinding wheel or the object being worked on must freely transverse the other.
