Blanchard Grinding

Blanchard Grinding

Also known as rotary surface grinding, the Blanchard grinder removes material from metal surfaces in a cost-effective and efficient manner. This method of grinding produces a finished surface on virtually any material although most machinists use it on ferrous metals. Our machine produces its distinct cross-hatch pattern by using a vertical spindle and magnetic rotating table to hold the metal in place. We are able to meet tolerances of +/- 0.005″.
