TCI Precision Metals Expands Grinding Services

TCI Precision Metals uses double-disc grinding as one of its methods to deliver dimensional tolerances, parallelism and flatness as close as ±.002". Double-disc grinding uses two opposing abrasive wheels to grind two sides of the material simultaneously. In one operation, equal amounts of material are removed from both sides.

TCI Precision Metals has announced the expansion of its grinding services to meet the needs of customers wanting more value-added materials processing. Customers who have traditionally sourced materials and shipped them to and from TCI Precision Metals for specific grinding requirements can now eliminate additional in-house processing, shorten materials lead times and increase production efficiency. TCI can source materials mill-direct, precision cut oversize and then grind or mill two or six sides to close tolerance customer specifications.

The expansion of TCI value-added grinding services is made possible by the company's ongoing investment in high-production materials processing equipment to produce its precision machine-ready blanks. Blanks are close-tolerance materials that go directly from the customer's receiving dock to finish machining or fabrication. By expanding the machine-ready materials processing capabilities to traditional grinding orders, customers can eliminate additional in-house processes while still having the option to source and supply the raw materials or have TCI do it.

"TCI Precision Metals has provided grinding services to manufacturers nationwide for over 70 years. As competition becomes greater and workforce development more difficult, many shops are looking for ways to do more with less. Expanding our machine-ready materials processing capabilities to our loyal grinding customers is one way we can help them maximize their business," said Ben Belzer, President and CEO of TCI Precision Metals.

Precision Machine-Ready blanks eliminate the need for in-house sawing, grinding, flattening and squaring operations. Each blank arrives deburred, clean and individually packaged to avoid damage during shipping. Blanks are available in two ways: Ready-to-Ship blanks can be ordered online for same-day or next-day shipping and arrive square, flat and parallel within ±.002" of specified dimensions all around; custom Made-to-Order blanks are made to customer specifications and are guaranteed as close as +/-.0005" dimensionally and as close as .002" flatness, squareness and parallelism.
