  • Our company puts safety as a priority, there are many areas for error in Centerless Grinding. I use Centerless Grinding Solution’s Training program to keep my machine operators educated on safety, machine use, and maintenance.

Their inventory of grinding wheel and regulating wheel spindles for our multiple Viking centerless grinders keep our grinders running with minimal downtime.. I would suggest them for any Viking Centerless Grinder repair project.

  • Our company has trusted Centerless Grinding Solutions for over 10 years to repair/service our Cincinnati Centerless Grinders. We recently updated (2) of our centerless grinders with servo controls. The increased production along with holding a tighter tolerance will be a great return on investment. I would recommend Centerless Grinding Solutions to anyone looking to upgrade their centerless grinders.
