What does a "jig grinding machine" do?

Jig grinding machines are used for milled workpieces that need to be ground with a level of high precision. They are mostly used when the precision of CNC milling machines is not high enough. Hard materials, like cast iron or glass, can be formed into the desired shape on a jig grinding machine.

How does a jig grinding machine work?

In terms of composition, a jig grinding machine is very similar to a CNC milling machine. The rotation speed can reach over several hundred thousand rotations. Special diamond heads, CBN grinding tools or single point diamonds are the tools used for grinding. Due to this reason, jig grinding machines are only used for work conducted on the surface of the workpiece, and cannot be used for the removal of large pieces of material.

In order to conduct every possible grinding motion, the machines work with a minimum of five axels.

What types of products are manufactured with a jig grinding machine?

Jig grinding machines are used when working on products that require a lot of precision when being ground. This includes tools for presses, moulding equipment and stamps. Even heavy duty components of machines can be critically improved or developed through the use of a jig grinding machine. High-performance engines or measuring instruments can also be produced with a jig grinding machine. In relation to the desired set up of the machine, it can reach precision levels to the region of a micro millimetre. For this reason, jig grinding machines are usually the chosen machine in developing aeronautical or aerospace technology products.

Working with a jig grinding machine

As jig grinding machines are used to develop high-end products with high levels of precision, only trained machine mechanics should work with this machine. The maintenance, upkeep, cleaning and installing of this machine is even more demanding than the traditional CNC machines. Therefore, work conducted with a jig grinding machine always requires diligence and qualified expertise. This can only be guaranteed with a trained specialist.

What kind of companies need jig grinding machines?

A jig grinding machine is only used during the end stage of the manufacturing process. Workpieces that need to be ground should already be cleared and smoothed. These machines are required by organisations that produce products that can only be manufactured using a jig grinding machine. These products are usually just single pieces or made in a small-scale series. For this reason, these machines are also very popular with service providers, who provide the facilities for the end stages of production.

A reliable service provider can be very successful in this field, depending on the quality of the machine and the availability of highly trained professionals.

Providers of jig grinding machines

The required precision and the production quality of a jig grinding machine restricts the range of providers available. It is heavily recommended to choose manufacturers who already have a high level of experience with the manufacturing of jig grinding machines. Competitive offers from unknown sources will lead to unsatisfying results. Established providers of jig grinding machines are: HAUSER, MOORE, PERRIN, MIKROMAT, WMW HECKERT and DECKEL.
