Client Testimonials

Anthony M Smith, UNFI

“UNFI was at the forefront of what was going to become not only a business hurdle but a national pandemic. I was faced with multiple union strikes and staffing shortages around the United States. Upon notification of my first strike (walk-out) RSS was able to provide within 48-72 hours all the support necessary to get the distribution center up and running and on-time to customers. The customers stated that the replacement workers were better than the regular workforce.

I can not tell you how much I appreciated the support you and your team was able to provide when we were faced with a national emergency.”

Regional Vice President, U.S. largest food distributor

“I wanted to reach out and thank you for the support provided. This was new territory for our management team. When it came to contingency drivers, your team stepped up in a very significant way during a very troubling time for our distribution center. Not only were you there for us, but you proved to be extremely fast and flexible with filling our needs in under 48 hours notice. Your onsite management of your driver contingency team was the exact partnership we needed to ensure we could focus our time on our customers.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What industries do ID Grinder Operators work in?

ID (Inside Diameter) grinders are utilized across a broad spectrum of industries where precision internal dimensions and smooth finishes are critical. Here are some of the key industries where ID grinders play a vital role:

  • Aerospace: For precision grinding of internal engine components, hydraulic system parts, and other aerospace components that require tight tolerances and smooth internal surfaces.
  • Automotive: In manufacturing components such as gears, engine cylinders, and bearings that demand precise internal dimensions for optimal performance and reliability.
  • Medical Device Manufacturing: For creating precise internal features on surgical instruments, implants, and equipment where exact dimensions and finishes are critical for patient safety and device effectiveness.
  • Tool and Die Making: In crafting molds, dies, and other precision tools that require accurately ground internal surfaces to produce parts within specific tolerances.
  • Bearing Industry: To grind the internal surfaces of ball and roller bearing races, ensuring they meet the precise specifications for smooth operation.
  • Electrical and Electronics: In producing components for electric motors, generators, and various electronic devices requiring precise internal grinding for optimal performance.
  • Metalworking and Fabrication: For custom machining and fabrication of industrial components, such as pipes, fittings, and specialty tools, that require precise internal dimensions.
  • Defense and Military: In the manufacturing of components for military equipment and weapons systems, where precise internal dimensions are crucial for functionality and reliability.
  • Industrial Machinery: For parts in machinery and equipment used across various sectors, including manufacturing, energy, and agriculture, where internal dimensions and finishes are critical for operational efficiency.
  • Energy Sector: Particularly in oil and gas, nuclear, and renewable energy, for grinding internal surfaces of components used in turbines, pumps, and other critical equipment.
What does and ID Grinder Operator do?

An ID (Inside Diameter) Grinder Operator specializes in operating machinery designed to grind the inside diameter of cylindrical objects to ensure they meet precise specifications. The role involves several key responsibilities:

  • Setting Up Machinery: Preparing the ID grinding machine for operation, which includes selecting and installing the appropriate grinding wheels and fixtures, adjusting machine settings, and calibrating equipment for precise internal grinding.
  • Reading Blueprints: Understanding and interpreting technical drawings and blueprints to grasp the specific dimensions, tolerances, and surface finishes required for the interior surfaces of the workpieces.
  • Material Preparation: Positioning and securing the workpieces onto the machine or within the fixture, ensuring that they are properly aligned and ready for grinding.
  • Operating the Machine: Skillfully controlling the ID grinding machine to remove material from the inside surface of the workpiece, achieving the desired diameter, roundness, and surface finish.
  • Quality Control: Performing measurements and inspections of the ground internal diameters using micrometers, calipers, and other precision measuring instruments to ensure they meet the specified tolerances and quality standards.
  • Troubleshooting: Identifying and resolving issues with the grinding process, such as adjustments to machine settings or changing grinding wheels, to maintain high-quality output and minimize defects.
  • Maintenance: Performing routine maintenance on the ID grinding machinery to ensure it operates efficiently and safely, including cleaning, lubricating, and making minor repairs.
What is the difference between an OD grinder and an ID grinder?

OD (Outside Diameter) grinders and ID (Inside Diameter) grinders are cylindrical grinding machines, each designed to handle different aspects of machining round or cylindrical parts. The key difference between these two types of grinders lies in where the grinding operation is performed on the workpiece:

OD (Outside Diameter) Grinder:

  • Function: OD grinders are used to shape the external surface of a workpiece. This includes grinding the outer surface of cylindrical parts to achieve the desired diameter, roundness, finish, or other specifications.
  • Working Principle: The workpiece is mounted between centers (i.e., fixed points at both ends) or on a chuck, and it rotates around its axis. The grinding wheel, which also rotates, is brought into contact with the outside diameter of the workpiece, removing material to shape the outer surface.
  • Applications: OD grinding is commonly used to finish shafts, rods, rollers, and other cylindrical components.

ID (Inside Diameter) Grinder:

  • Function: ID grinders are used to grind the inside surface of a hollow part or bore. The objective can be to achieve a precise internal diameter, finish, or to remove material from the inside of a workpiece.
  • Working Principle: The workpiece is held in place while the grinding wheel, which is mounted on a spindle, is inserted into the workpiece to grind its internal surfaces. The grinding wheel rotates, and its position is carefully controlled to achieve the desired diameter and surface finish inside the bore.
  • Applications: ID grinding is often used for finishing the internal diameters of bearings, bushings, tubes, and other cylindrical components with internal features.


  • Location of Grinding Area: The most significant difference is where the grinding is performed relative to the workpiece—OD grinders work on the external surfaces, while ID grinders focus on the internal surfaces.
  • Tooling and Setup: ID grinding setups and tooling are generally more complex due to the need to accommodate internal grinding within hollow parts or bores. OD grinding setups are typically more straightforward, as they involve grinding the outer surface of solid cylindrical parts.
  • Applications: Each type of grinder is chosen based on the specific requirements of the project, depending on whether internal or external dimensions need to be precision-machined.

In essence, the choice between an OD grinder and an ID grinder will depend on the specific grinding requirements of the workpiece, including whether the focus is on internal or external dimensions.
