History of the reciprocating surface grinder: Surface grinders have been in use for more than a hundred years; no one seems to really know how long for sure. Many of the original manufacturers of surface grinders have now gone out of business or changed hands and as the present manufacturers try to put forth modern images, they don’t seem to want to talk much about the past. Thus, there is little history to be found, on a surface grinder.

Reciprocating surface grinders have changed very little over the decades except for the controls. The addition of incremental down feed has really made surface grinders more productive, allowing an operator to walk away and do other tasks as the grinding head automatically feeds down in set increments. Today, we of course have CNC controls making surface grinders extremely versatile and productive. The controls are what have really changed.

Where reciprocating surface grinders are used: Now, reciprocating surface grinders are in operation in almost every machine shop to be found and in machining and/or maintenance areas of most modern manufacturing plants. There are few machine or tool and die shops today, that don’t have at least one if not several surface grinders of whatever size. Surface grinding is a basic and vital step in machining almost any metal part that isn’t cylindrical in shape and where surface finish is important. There is no one particular industry where surface grinders aren’t normally found; they are used in the metalworking field in general; used by machine shops, tool and die shops, defense contractors, aerospace facilities, new and used replacement auto parts manufacturers, manufacturers of hardware; all, users of reciprocating surface grinders.

Brands of reciprocating surface grinders: There are reciprocating type surface grinders of many brands now, after many new brands have entered the market place in addition to all the older names such as Mattison, Blohm, Thompson, Gallmeyer & Livingston, Brown & Sharpe, and others. In recent years ones like Okamoto, Favretto, Chevalier, Acer, Kent, Elb and others have now become popular. Among small to medium size surface grinders, Okamotos are now by far the most popular due to their accuracy, speed and user friendliness. In larger surface grinders, Mattison and Thompson continue to be fastest sellers due to their ruggedness and simplicity. However, Okamoto sells quite a lot of the sixty to eighty inch long grinders. In grinders larger than eighty inches, Mattison and Thompson are king. One brand of grinder that often is overlooked is Gallmeyer & Livingston; in the small to medium size grinders, they are second to none. They are reliable and rugged, though not as fast as Okamotos.

Reciprocating Surface Grinder Sizes: Surface grinder sizes range from small five inch by ten inch grinders, up to giant grinders as large as sixty eight by three hundred twenty inches, in the case of a huge Mattison up for sale in 2014. By far, the most popular size of surface grinders are ones twelve by twenty four inches; seems to be a size large enough to do most of the jobs that pass through the average shop. The next most popular size is probably the six by eighteen inch reciprocating surface grinder.

Reciprocating surface grinder specifications: Today, reciprocating surface grinders are still a relatively basic machine in design, that has not changed much over the decades, with the controls being the biggest change as mentioned in the history section above. If you’re in the market to buy a grinder, we’ll just need to know what size chuck, the horse power you desire if that’s critical, how much clearance is needed underneath the grinding wheel and whether or not you want incremental down- feed. Also, the coolant system is a very important part of a surface grinder. It’s usually wise to invest in a new coolant filtration system for a used grinder, since their function is so important and since they tend to be very problematic with even the best of brands. We hope the above considerations will aid you in deciding what you want in a reciprocating surface grinder.

We want to sell you a reciprocating surface grinder. I will appreciate you contacting us real soon to discuss your grinding needs, so we can offer you the very best reciprocating surface grinder.
