Flat grinding (service) involves the precise handling of workpieces. This is particularly important when only very slight tolerances in terms of evenness will be accepted in the end products. Using flat grinding, special flat grinding machines achieve the required surface quality as well as excellent shape and positional tolerance. Difficult geometries and particularly demanding contours or shapes can also be processed in this way. A broad array of grinding tools are available for the grinding process. This process is implemented in many branches of industry, including: the electrical and electronics industry, the steel and iron industry and engine construction.
