Surface Grinding: Lumsden Grinding & Plough Grinding. Lumsden and/or plough grinding is the removal of material by a grinding process using a ‘plough’ grinding machine. Lumsden is the name of a make of machine and it has become synonymous with the process much as Hoover is to vacuum cleaners.
We are the only company in the UK that can undertake aluminium grinding & stainless steel grinding. Advantages of Lumsden/Plough Grinding The advantage of this method of machining over other methods is much higher rates of material removal compared to ‘surface grinding’.
2012-9-20 Stones are not used for grinding. Wheels are. For grinding aluminum, a silicon carbide wheel (not a green one) is the best choice, but grinding aluminum isn't in your best interest, as it, like mild steel, will not respond well to being ground on one side only, and there's always the problem of holding the material while it's being ground.
2002-5-1 Grinding aluminum Dressing the wheel. If someone does grind aluminum on a grinding wheel, causing it to be coated in aluminum, it doesn't mean the wheel needs to be thrown away. But you will need a dresser, which is a hand tool with two little star-shaped wheels on the top. The wheels are made of fairly soft steel, and are much softer than the

2012-8-14 Surface grinding aluminum Does anyone know of a more affordable solution to MagnaLock-MagnaVise when surface grinding non magnetic materials? I know the obvious vacuum chuck and blocking techniques. Thanks! 08-12-2012, 09:34 PM #2. oldbikerdude37. View Profile View Forum Posts Titanium Join Date Jun 2010
Surface Grinding Aluminium Practical Machinist 12/17/2008 I've had good success using the softest, coarsest, most porous wheel I could find, a 46G, and flooding on lots of oil prior to grinding. Coolant might achieve the same result as the oil. .001" roughing passes and .0002 to finish, with a wheel dress between each pass and light infeed

• Given several standard,common grinding jobs, recommend the appropriate abrasive, approximate grit size, grade, and bond. The Surface Grinder is mainly used in the finishing process. It is a very precise tool which uses a stationary, abrasive, rotating wheel to shave or finish a metallic surface
