Grinding Tools and Fixtures

The Right Grinding Tools and Fixtures for the Job

The skilled machinists at Duval Precision Grinding understand that correct handling techniques are of utmost importance to avoid damaging parts or unintentionally altering results. With tight tolerances, precision surface finishes, and complex geometry, even a slight scratch or imperfection could drastically affect a final measurement. To avoid these unintended consequences, Duval’s expert staff has extensive experience in customizing grinding tools and fixtures to accommodate any part.


Expert Handling from Start to Finish

From the moment a shipment enters Duval’s facility in Chicopee, MA, it is kept at a constant 68°F to eliminate any subtle fluctuations in the material’s surface. Procedures are then developed for grinding tools and fixtures specific to the needs of each individual part. In many instances, handling procedures and universal fixtures can be modified to correctly protect surfaces and ensure that parts remain secure throughout the grinding and finishing processes. For complex parts or unusual sizes and shapes, custom grinding tools and fixtures are designed to make certain that each part is handled by the same, exacting standards.
