Plough Grinding is the removal of material by a grinding process using a ‘plough’ grinding machine. Lumsden grinding machines are the most popular make of machine for this process, and they are not synonamous with this process.

We can offer this process as a compliment to our flame and laser cutting services, or to customer supplied material.  This process enables tight tolerances and an excellent surface finish.
