A high-in-demand service in many of today’s top industries is the grinding of machine parts. The majority of grinding services available include CNC cylindrical grinding (ID & OD), centerless grinding, CNC thread grinding, the straightening and grinding of bars, and flat grinding (surface and Blanchard). At Minnesota Grinding, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources to provide you with exceptional cylindrical and surface grinding services.

Cylindrical Grinding Basics

This type of grinding service involves rounding out the outside and inside of the pieces until the desired tolerances are achieved. Minnesota Grinding can machine these diameters with great precision. Our certified, highly skilled craftsmen use state-of-the-art CNC cylindrical grinding equipment to achieve precise roundness on products. With inside and outside diameter services, our machinists can create a variety of shapes that involve central axis rotation, including an ellipse, cylinder, crankshaft, and cam.

Surface (Blanchard) Grinding

If a specific pattern finish needs to be applied on the surface of the part, Blanchard grinding is an effective solution. At Minnesota Grinding, we can Blanchard grind parts as large as 29.5” x 29.5”, or 42” corner to corner. If you need large amounts of material ground and eliminated fast, we are able to get the job done on your behalf quickly and efficiently.

Surface Grinding Applications

Often referred to as Rotary surface grinding, our Blanchard grinding option is an efficient way to remove large stock from nonferrous and magnetic parts. The type of material that can be removed includes steel, bronze, aluminum, cast iron, stainless steel, raw metal, copper, and mold plate.

At Minnesota Grinding, we are your premier provider for surface and cylindrical grinding services. We strive to get the job done to the highest standards every time, and we provide our services at a fair price.
