Grinding and Sharpening Services

Grinding and sharpening are common services for many wear parts, including industrial knives and welder dies, after use. The correct grinding, reconditioning, or sharpening service is dependent on the design of the shear or welder and the application. ASKO has a variety of effective sharpening and grinding tools and grinding machines to restore your parts. Our grinding services include: surface grinding, blanchard grinding, steel grinding, and rotary grinding.

ASKO services all products we sell as well as products manufactured by all competitors for grinding and sharpening. ASKO offers exceptional grinding facilities for surface and cylindrical grinding at our Chicago, Pittsburgh, Rock Hill, SC, and Amsterdam plants. ASKO performs grinding and shimming for knives, blades, cutters, welder-dies, wear parts, load cell cases, pressductor plates and general machine components. After grinding, parts are restored to original size through the application of correct shims for each application.
