Centreless grinding is an abrasive cutting process that removes predetermined amount of material from a workpiece’s surface to enhance the surface finish either for a functional or aesthetic purpose. Centreless grinding is name such because there is no centre spindle or fixture that locates the workpiece. The workpiece is held between two spinning grinding wheels both of which have independent rates or rotation (rpm). The relative of rotation between the two wheels determines the rate at which the material is removed from the surface of the workpiece.
