Grinding and Machining
With our two Blanchard rotary grinders, we can produce high quality flat (carbon only) plates to our customers’ requirements. We have the capacity in-house to grind up to 96” corner to corner (or diameter) x 36” height.
In addition, we have a CNC mill that can quickly get a plate down to the desired thickness as a pre-step before grinding. The CNC mill has a capacity of 50″ x 100″.
Rotary surface grinders, commonly known as “Blanchard” style grinders, have a grinding head which rotates the grinding wheel on a vertical axis cutting on the end face of the grinding wheel, while a table rotates the work piece in the opposite direction underneath. This type of machine removes large amounts of material and grinds flat surfaces with noted spiral grind marks. It can also be used to make and sharpen metal stamping die sets, flat shear blades, fixture bases or any flat and parallel surfaces.
