Used within the precision machining world, Blanchard Grinding creates the rotary table component of another tool. The flat-grinding process allows for a tabletop finish with characteristic Blanchard etching.
For metals with diameters up to 42 inches, magnetic or non-magnetic, Blanchard grinding removes the most material on one side than any other process. Fast and effective, this method works well for low and high-volume orders covering significant surface areas.
Named after the Blanchard Machine Company that developed the machine back in the 1900s, this process is an economical choice for large parts and plates. Blanchard grinding creates a recognizable crosshatch pattern while maintaining accuracy and high tolerances.
