Hygrade’s vertical cylindrical grind work centers help us produce with efficiency and high tolerances. By combining the ID and OD processes, this equipment processes various features to keep the timeline moving quickly and meet your deadlines.

Our vertical grinding centers grind parts as large as 48.000” diameter (60.000” swing) to your exact specifications on most difficult materials, including specialized coatings and chrome plate. We can easily meet your grinding requirements with our extensive line up of equipment and experienced operators.

End Uses & Applications

This type of grinding is a popular process for production, but at Hygrade we combine excellent customer service with the experience to deliver on time, on budget, and within your exact specifications.

Works with Gravity

On a vertical cylindrical grinding machine, the piece is held up straight during grinding, so there’s less opportunity for distortion. By choosing the best machines and experienced operators for the job, Hygrade achieves the high tolerances necessary for your project.

Shape Variety

The grinder can prepare cylinders in multiple shapes, not just straight pieces. The variety of tooling allows for a tapered cone, angled elements in different widths, and total shaped cylinders.

Aerospace Industry

Large aerospace casings are ideal for the vertical cylindrical grinding centers due to their wide diameters and shorter lengths. Many of these components require grinding of plasma and HVOF coatings, for which Hygrade is an approved source with leading aerospace and defense contractors.
