This product line specializes in the development of small part in large series for hydraulic and fuel injection industries. Moreover, the manufacturers are refining their machines to offer customers with a reduced round of grinding. For instance, the ANCA Inc. refined its cylindrical grinding machine to allow it to spin headstock up to 3000 rpm. ANCA machines also come with the in-process gaging feature. The above-mentioned trend prevailing in the industry is expected to result in the grinding machinery market growth.


“Increasing Adoption of CNC Grinding Machines to Propel Market”

The increasing adoption of Industry 4.0 solutions is focusing on the development of smart factories which, in turn, is resulting in the high demand for CNC grinding machines. Industry 4.0 solutions are resulting in the emerging trend towards big data and automation in the manufacturing sector. The influence of big data in the manufacturing sector, especially in quality assurance, is gaining importance among manufacturers. The ability to leverage real-time information about the product and process is expected to result in high product adoption. Furthermore, the integration of automatic virtual meteorology (AVM) an online inspection system is expected to reduce delays and this is gaining traction in the manufacturing industry. The rising need for improved human-machine interaction is also resulting in increased demand for CNC grinding machines. Key manufacturers are focusing on the development of gear grinding and finishing machines that generate NC code automatically after data input. This will enable technicians to change input data settings through mobile applications. Industry 4.0 has resulted in the addition of sensors in grinders for predictive maintenance purposes.  For instance, the Chevalier Machinery Inc. offers two-spindle sensors, one is dedicated to automatic balancing and the other spindle loading meter helps to determine the wheel dressing cycle for machine maintenance. Also, the enhanced transparency, high efficiency, and improved process control is resulting in greater demand for CNC grinding machines which, in turn, is expected to result in grinding machines market growth during the forecast period.

“Software Advancements in Cylindrical Grinding is Resulting in High Adoption of Grinding Machines”

The increasing need for high accuracy and surface finishing has resulted in technologically driven grinding software. The software helps in calculating the feed, speed, spark out times, and other process parameters to achieve high efficiency. Besides this, the lack of skilled operators is resulting in high demand for grinding software. Manufacturers are thus focusing on developing advanced software to ease the setup of the grinding process. For instance, Chevalier Machinery Inc. offers a graphic program that asks the operator which job is required and then creates the program accordingly. Thus, anyone without any experience in CNC operating or programming can use it. The various benefits of grinding software such as reduced production cost, minimize setup, grinding and programming times is expected to drive the demand for the grinding machines market. According to multiple sources, the United Grinding software reduces the setup time by more than 10% with a single wheel and approximately 90% with four wheels. Besides, the software can set grinding methods, speed, and feed rates and result in reduced production time. In addition, the software also provides critical functions including wheel balancing. This will help increase the overall grinding machines market size in the forecast period. For instance, the ANCA offers a software suite that prevents harmonics and vibrations through in-machine balancing. The increasing demand for remote monitoring and control is driving the need for grinding software. For instance, Chevalier Machinery offers an iMachine Communication System that forecasts production issues, prevents downtime, and monitors performance through its MT-LINKi. Thus, the features mentioned above offered by the software are expected to increase the grinding machine market demand in the near future.
