Blanchard Rotary Surface Grinding

(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)

Blanchard rotary surface grinding features large stock removal rates on flat surfaces. Ferrous materials are held on a magnetic chuck while the opposite surface is ground - one side is ground at a time. Non-ferrous materials can also be ground, but require special work holding arrangements - we call it magic.

The Blanchard will leave its trademark cross-hatched surface finish pattern, typically within a 32 - 125 RMS range, though higher finishes are possible.

  • Long or short runs.
  • Ferrous or non-ferrous metals, annealed or hardened up to 62 RC.
  • Flat, parallel, square and uniformity tolerances within 0.001 - 0.003 depending on size.
  • Dimensional tolerance frequently requested is ±0.002.

Non-Ferrous and Refractory Metals

At Euclid Precision and Specialty Metals Grinding Co., Inc. we use abrasives to shape specialty metals into essential components used in the semi-conductor, aerospace, medical and machine tool industries. In particular, our expertise with refractory metals like Molybdenum and Tungsten is well regarded internationally.

With over 60 years doing nothing but grinding, we probably have more experience with specialty metals than most shops have with regular steels. Orders completed on a regular basis include the following:

Aluminum Hastelloy MP35N
Brass Heavy Metal Tungsten Alloy Stainless Steels
Bronze Inconel Tantalum
Ceramics Manganese Steel Titanium
Chromium Molybdenum Tungsten
Chrome Removal Monel Tungsten Carbide
Columbium Nickel Alloys TZM Alloy
Copper Nitralloy Waspalloy
Copper-Tungsten Alloy Densimet Zirconium

In addition to our experience with unusual metals, our Abrasive Waterjets are utilized to cut other materials used in industry, including plastics of every type, fiberglass, rubber, composites, and laminated materials.

We have also contributed to architectural designers and building contractors, where we have used our waterjets to cut intricate light fixture components from brass or aluminum, decorative steel stair-case details, unusually shaped ceramic floor tile and even marble counter tops.
