Cylindrical Grinding

Cylindrical Grinding

Cylindrical grinding is a plastic forming process that uses a rotating wheel to grind plastics in to shape. Aztec Plastic specializes in cylindrical grinding of thermoplastic, thermosetting, and composite material.

Cylindrical Grinding 

Cylindrical or Infeed Grinding is a machining process in which a cylindrical object is clamped between two centers or a chuck, and then ground with a grinding wheel at a desired diameter. With cylindrical grinding, both the object and the grinding wheel are constantly rotating. This method of grinding does not leave a spiral or groove pattern, but it does create a smooth finish for plastic parts.


  • The ability to achieve extremely close tolerances and round angles with precision
  • A reduced cost compared to other plastic grinding processes.
  • Excellent finish quality on all cylindrical grinding projects.


  • ¼ to 4 inch diameter by 10 inch long sizes
  • Roundness
  • Hydraulic/Pneumatic areas of service
