Honing and Lapping Precision Turned Components

Approximately 30% of the components that Pioneer Service manufactures for our clients require grinding after the machining process.  Standard grinding (both centerless and centered) produces a finer surface finish and/or more precise dimensions than can be achieved during the turning process on a CNC Swiss or CNC Turning Center. [...]
