Surface Grinding Design Guidelines
  1. As with other machining operations, set up changes should be minimized. This is possible if all flat ground surfaces are parallel and on the same side of the part.
  2. Magnetic chucks are typically used for holding down parts during surface grinding. If the part can be designed to be compatible with a magnetic chuck, convenience and throughput increase. Use of a magnetic chuck requires a ferrous (magnetic) material and a flat seating surface opposite the ground surface.
  3. Ground surfaces should be situated as high up above obstructions as possible, as shown below.


  4. Ground surfaces should be as continuous as possible and well supported since the grinding wheel will be pressing down upon them.
