Large Capacity Rotary Grinding & Flat Grinding Near Pittsburgh, PA

Over 50 Years of Blanchard & Surface Grinding Experience

Blanchard grinders are known worldwide as leaders in rotary grinding. In fact, Blanchard grinders are so well known for their quality and precision that Blanchard grinding and rotary grinding have become synonymous. Rotary grinding utilizes high horsepower to remove large amounts of surface stock, leaving a cross-hatched surface finish and providing excellent flatness and parallelism. We have experience working with mild steel, stainless alloys, mold steels, forgings, and castings.
