Grinding & Precision Machining Services

Grinding & Machining

Grinding and machining are critical manufacturing processes that shape or cut materials using abrasives or cutting tools. Both require precision, expertise, and adaptability. At Atlantic Hardchrome, we leverage our deep-seated knowledge and skills to offer both services, ensuring every component we work on meets exacting specifications.

Atlantic Hardchrome has led the industry in providing high-quality grinding and precision machining services for years. Our skilled team and cutting-edge equipment ensure we deliver tailored and functionally superior components for our diverse clientele.

Manual Machining

We provide robust manual machining services. Our talented machinists excel at repairing, recreating, and fabricating precision machined parts.

Cylindrical Grinding

Cylindrical grinding Involves rotating the workpiece on its axis while our precise abrasive wheel cuts and shapes the material to the required specifications.

Internal Diameter Grinding

Removes material from the inside diameter of a part. This process is perfect for pre-plating worn surfaces or achieving tight tolerance dimensions post-plating.

Surface Grinding

Using a rotating abrasive wheel, we create a flat surface, ideal for providing a refined look and finishing your project.

Offset Grinding

Used for grinding centerless parts like crankshafts and eccentric diameters, this process is crucial for repairs and to prevent early wear and potential damage.

Large Capacity Machining

We have large-capacity engine lathes, milling machines, a horizontal boring mill, and hollow spindle/oil field lathes for handling sizeable projects.
