Jones & Shipman offers two cylindrical grinding machines called the Suprema and Ultramat. The Suprema incorporates a universal wheelhead and has a grinding capacity of 300 mm × 650 mm in diameter between centers. Models are also available in 1-m and 1.5-m table capacities. This model with its universal wheelhead allows for internal and external grinding, plain straight approach and angle head options are also available; all achieved with low capital outlay, ensuring fast payback for users, the company says.

The Ultramat machine is designed for the higher-volume production environment, such as aerospace and automotive, as well as high-precision sub-contract machining for biomedical and motorsport engineering. The machine offers 650-mm or 1000 mm between centers. Options for this machine range include conventional or the company's Easy Control CNC, angle head, external only or a programmable turret wheelhead with multiple wheels, full in-process gaging, probing and flagging, autoloading and articulating arm CNC form dressing.

The company's Easy Control is built around a GE Fanuc touchscreen and incorporates the company's software that removes the requirement for operators to input code, and provides a highly flexible graphical menu-driven program. It features 10th micron programming, standard cycles and contour grinding. The control is available as an option in place of a conventional CNC on all current grinding machines the company produces.
