Type
   Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Angle Grinder       Angle grinders are abrasive power tools consisting of a spindle at a right angle to the body of the tool. Abrasive discs, grinding wheels, cutoff wheels, mounted points or wheels, cones, buffs, and non-woven discs are mounted on the spindle. Angle grinders are used in manual tasks such as the finishing, deburring, patterning, grinding, cutting, and polishing of tools, molds, prototypes and other parts. 
   Die Grinder / Rotary Tool       Die grinders and rotary tools are very compact, handheld abrasive power tools. Typically, die grinders include a spindle inline with the body of the tool. Die grinders are used for detailed, manual tasks such as the finishing, deburring, patterning, grinding, cutting, or polishing of tools, molds, prototypes or other intricate parts. Points or wheels, cones, and miniature buffs or non-wovens are commonly mounted on the spindles of die grinders. 
   Grinder - Abrasive Belt       Belt grinders and sanders consist of a driven contact wheel and a tensioning idler wheel or pulley. Abrasive belts are mounted on both the contact wheel and the idler wheel. Workpieces are ground or sanded against the abrasive belt. Contact wheels vary according to the degree of aggressiveness or finishing required. Smooth, soft, rubber-faced contact wheels are the least aggressive. Serrated, hard, rubber-faced wheels are more aggressive. Smooth metal or steel-faced wheels are the most aggressive. 
   Grinder - Grinding Wheel       Devices are designed to use bonded abrasives such as grinding wheels, honing stones and cut-off wheels. Typically, these devices have greater rigidity or stiffness than equipment that is designed for flexible coated abrasives. Protective shielding and enclosures are also important device features. 
   Belt Grinder - Platen / Edge       Edge sanders and platen grinders consist of a driven contact wheel, a tensioning wheel or pulley, and an intermediate platen behind an abrasive belt. Abrasive belts are mounted on both the contact wheel and the tensioning idler. Workpieces are ground or sanded against the abrasive belt, which is backed by the platen. Platen types vary by operation and are constructed of smooth, low-friction materials that reduce heating and limit thermally-induced belt damage. Flat platens are used to remove irregularities from workpieces and to provide a smooth, flat surface. Edge sanders or sidestroke sanders are usually stationary and feature a long, flat platen behind a horizontal belt-sanding surface. 
   Backstand       Backstand or benchstand grinders and polishers are machines that are well-suited for the offhand grinding or finishing of gates, risers, welds and flash on castings, forgings or other small, fabricated components. 
   Cam / Crankshaft       Devices are specially designed for crankshaft grinding or finishing. 
   Centerless        Centerless machines are used to grind or finish rolls, rollers, shafts, connecting rods, valve stems or other precision cylindrical or radially symmetric shapes that have a uniform cross-section not profiled along the length. With centerless grinding machine tools, cylindrical workpieces are placed between a grinding wheel and regulating wheels. The regulating wheels cause the workpiece to rotate, producing a precision cylindrical part. Parts are seated on a work rest instead of a center in order to provide faster and easier workpiece insertion and removal. Centerless grinding machines are primarily used in high production applications and include throughfeed and plunge grinding. Plunge grinding centerless machines are used to grind or finish spherical outer diameters, tapers, or other precision radially symmetric or cylindrical shapes where profile varies along the length. 
   Creep Feed       Creep feed or plunge grinding machines remove large amounts or material in one or two passes (large cut) using very slow table speeds. By contrast, conventional surface grinders require numerous lighter passes to remove the same amount of metal or material. Plunge grinding is also used to describe a type of cylindrical or centerless grinding where the infeed of the grinding wheel is limited to radial movements without any cross slide movement. 
   Cylindrical / External (OD)       Cylindrical or outer diameter (OD) devices grind or finish between the centers or between a chuck and center in a lathe-like machine. Shafts, threaded shafts, large rolls, cams, valve stems, or similarly profiled radially-symmetric components are ground or finished using cylindrical or OD grinding. 
   Disc Grinder       Disc sanders are abrasive-disc grinders or grinding-wheel face grinders. Vertical shaft grinder or sander is another term used to describe disc grinders or sanders. 
   Hobbing / Gear       Devices are designed for hobbing or gear grinding. 
   Inner Diameter (ID) / Internal       Devices are designed to accept smaller diameter wheels, abrasive products or deburring tools for grinding or finishing the surface on the inner diameter (ID) or internal recesses of a part. 
   Jig Grinder       Jig grinders are used to grind complex shapes and holes to a precise dimensional tolerance while meeting specific surface-finish requirements. 
   Metallographic Prep       Equipment designed for mechanical test specimen, microscopy sections or metallographic sample preparation applications. Preparation operations may include cutting or grinding to size, section thinning, rough finishing, removal of strained or damage layers, edge deburring and/or polishing for microscopy or compositional analysis.  
   Polisher-Grinder       Grinder with integral polishing capability. Polishing generates bright, smooth or fine surface finishes.  Polishing machines may use loose abrasives, lapping compounds or fixed fine grit abrasives products such as abrasive films or discs. 
   Precision Grinder       Precision grinders are designed for applications that require high levels of accuracy and repeatability. 
   Profile / Form       Profile, form, gear and other processes shape the grinding wheel with dressing to create a specific profile. Dressing an inverse profile of the desired component surface onto the grinding wheel eliminates a complex sequence of steps. By using specialized accessories, form grinding is also possible with coated abrasives and nonwoven products. 
   Rotary Surface (e.g., Blanchard)       Rotary surface or blanchard-style grinders are used to produce surfaces that are precision-ground to specific size and surface-finish criteria. The face of a standard or segmented wheel is presented to the parts in a vertical or horizontal orientation. 
   Superabrasive Grinder       Devices are designed to use superabrasives or diamond or cubic boron nitride (CBN) abrasives. Very rigid or high-stiffness machines make better use of superabrasives in precision grinding applications. 
   Surface Grinder       Surface grinding machines are used to grind flat and/or square surfaces. Typically, the workpiece is mounted on a table underneath the grinding wheel or belt. The table sweeps back and forth in a reciprocating motion with each pass. The table is indexed upwards to provide the desired depth of cut after each pass. 
   Thread Grinder       Devices are designed for thread grinding. 
   Tool Grinder / Sharpener       Tool grinders and sharpening machines are specialized for tool, die, punch, cutter, blade and drill point sharpening, grinding, honing, finishing, resharpening, refinishing or regrinding. 
   Universal (ID/OD)       Universal (ID/OD) machines have the capability to grind or finish internal and external surfaces on inner and outer diameters of a part. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary types of devices such as scarifiers, power files, scrapers, extrusion or flow honing, thermal deburring or stripping, and wafer thinning or backgrinding equipment.
