Creep-Feed Grinding

Creep-feed grinding

Creep-Feed or form grinding process allows a high rate of stock removal in a single pass. This grinding technique is often applied to high performance alloys or hardened materials. With multiple CNC machinines either single pass or reciprocating processes yield extremely consistent tolerances of up to .0002". Originally utilized for wire processing blade forms, creep-feed grinding can be applied to any industry where form integrity, high production, or cost reduction is required. Where conventional surface grinding might take minutes creep feed grinding can complete the same operation in seconds! Contact us today and see if creep feed grinding is the answer. Learn more...


Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) Coating

Physical vapor deposition Coating PVD

Offering conventional or Nano PVD coatings Lakes Precision can provide a coating for your specific application. We offer titanium, titanium carbo nitrite, zirconium, and specially formulated coatings that make us unique in the coating industry. Our clean room environment provides the highest quality coatings and insured consistency from part to part.

Electro Discharge Machining (EDM)

Considered one of the most accurate machining processes available, Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) could be the answer your looking for. EDM is the process of removing material using a series of electrical sparks in a carefully controlled manufacturing environment. Should you require distortion free manufacturing, unique or complex shapes, tooling or fixture cost reduction, or prototypes, EDM is the answer. Do you have exotic materials, hard metals, or tight tolerances, contact us today and find out if EDM is the solution. Our quality is guaranteed. Learn more...


Thru Feed Grinding

vertical thru feed grinding

Thru-Feed Grinding is a flat production machining process utilizing a belt feed system. Parts hardened or soft are passed under a vertical spindle wheel at varying speed rates and grinding pressures for precise stock removal.This process yields high production, single pass flat grinding for, but not exclusive to, stampings, fine blanked parts, or bar stock material removal. Lakes Precision Inc. equipment has stock removal rates up to .100 and consistently holds +/-.0005 tolerances for finished parts.Give us a call and learn more about the advantages of thru-feed grinding.
