Blanchard grinding

Custom Engineering / Venango Machine has been one of the largest Blanchard Industrial Grinding facilities in Erie and Northwest PA since 1954. Depending on the material to be ground, our experienced operators are able to hold dimensions of flat and parallel to .001 or better and thickness to +/- .0005.

Blanchard grinding allows you to grind multiple smaller parts at one time for a more efficient and cost effective method of grinding.

The benefits of vertical spindle rotary industrial grinding is the ability to quickly and efficiently remove large amounts of stock from one side of a part that is usually too large to be double ground.

The burly, grinders quickly remove stock from one side of a part. A flat magnetic chuck, or table, holds magnetic materials such as ferrous metals in place; specially designed fixtures are used to position non-ferrous and non-magnetic materials during the industrial grinding process.
