The grinder is a machine that is used for fine surface finishing and the amount of material removed rarely exceeds a few thousands of an inch. These machines have been developed over the years to satisfy specific needs of the industry it serves, so grinding has become specialized, as has turning and milling. The most common types of grinders are the surface grinder, the universal tool and cutter grinder, and the cylindrical grinder.
