Conventional Grinding Wheel-Precision Grinding
A Grinding Wheel actually cuts away chips from the piece being ground. Off-hand grinding or non-precision grinding is where the grinding wheel is applied manually to the work or where the work is applied to the grinding wheel. Off-hand grinding includs snagging of castings, forging, tool sharpening, weld grinding, cutting off, bench grinding or pedestal grinding applications.

As the name indicates, the need is more on surface finish, geometry and size control. Precision grinding operations include Cylindrial Grinding, Centrelss Grinding, Internal Grinding, Surface Grinding, Tool and Cutter Grinding, Tread Grinding, Crankshaft and Camshaft Grinding.
