Lumsden grinding is the removal of material by a grinding process using a ‘plough’ grinding machine. Lumsden is the name of a make of machine and it has become synonymous with the process.
The advantage of this method of machining over other methods is much higher rates of material removal compared to ‘surface grinding’. Generally, larger areas can be machined without leaving ‘witness’ lines than with conventional machining (milling).
