When you need a lot of material removed in a short amount of time, Blanchard grinding is an excellent option. This method, also called rotary surface grinding, is commonly used to grind one side of materials. It can also be used to grind opposite sides to achieve flat and parallel surfaces. Here are some important things to know about rotary surface grinding services from Minnesota Grinding.


Some parts are just too large for standard applications, and this is where rotary surface grinding enters the picture. In fact, it is possible to grind materials as large as 42 inches (corner to corner). If you need precision grinding, this is also possible.


Minnesota Grinding can grind the following materials:

  • Aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • Copper
  • Bronze
  • Mold plate
  • Raw metal (feedstock)

Rotary surface grinding can handle more than one part. It's more efficient than standard surface grinding, and it's possible to grind castings, extrusion, stampings, and laser or waterjet cut materials too.
