Blanchard Grinding or Rotary Surface Grinding

In this picture, you can clearly see the cross hatch pattern left by the Blanchard grinding.

TMT uses a variety of Blanchard machines for rotary surface grinding of metal plates. The main feature of our Blanchard Grinding operation is heavy stock removal at a fast rate for all magnetic materials. Non-ferrous parts are handled at lower production speeds do to holding requirements. The rotary surface grinding of Blanchard will leave its trademark cross-hatched surface finished pattern, typically within a 32-125 RMS range, although better finishes are possible.

Blanchard Grinding is also referred to as Rotary Surface Grinding and it quickly removes stock from one side of a part. Parts as large as 42" by 42" can be Blanchard ground on our machines. These rotary surface grinding machines achieve excellent dimensional tolerances to .001", Parallelism to .001", and flatness to .001". Blanchard grinding machines utilize significantly greater horsepower than other grinding methods, and removes large amounts of stock quickly and efficiently.
