Blanchard Grinding

Blanchard Grinding

Since Precision Grinding LLC was founded in 2006, our excellent grinding services have kept us popular with customers, and we are always expanding the services we provide to suit our clients’ needs.

 Experienced Blanchard Grinding

We have more than five years of experience performing Blanchard grinding for our customers, so you can be assured of quality and dependability. We finish each job completely and efficiently because we are specialists.

Blanchard grinding is also known as rotary grinding  It is suitable for large parts like side plates, machine bases, forgings, and weldments. Blanchard grinding also adds versatility, enhances surface conditions, removes mismatches, and can finish big parts more quickly than milling.

During Blanchard grinding, magnetic resources are kept in place with an electromagnetic chuck. Dimensional tolerances of around 0.002 inches in parallelism and uniformity for every foot of a diagonal part are reached on Blanchard grinding. The surface finish usually runs at 63 micro-inch RMS or at 32 micro-inch RMS in some materials.

Non-ferrous materials can also be ground, but they may require exclusive work holding preparations. The machines we use are equipped with space chucks, which are used in the grinding process for non-magnetic materials.

Blanchard grinding procedure

Your costs and turnaround time can be reduced by Blanchard grinding several parts concurrently. The Blanchard grinding procedure leaves its brand cross-hatched surface texture pattern, usually inside a 32 up to 125 RMS range, although higher finishes are probable.

  • Long and short runs
  • Ferrous and non-ferrous metals, hardened and annealed for up to 62 RC
  • Flat, horizontal, square and equality tolerances around 0.002 up to 0.003 based on the size
  • Dimensional tolerance usually requested is around positive 0.002
  • Carbide material yields an even better tolerance. We have consistently ground 24” flat carbide materials as well as OD grinding of carbide parts up to 20” OD.

Our grinding process capacity involves the following:

  • Restructuring bar grinder
  • 42 inches capacity
  • 60 inches capacity
