Blanchard Grinding

IPMI can meet your most complex Blanchard grinding requirements.

Dimensional tolerances to ± .001″, parallelism to .001″ and flatness to .001″ are achievable on all IPMI’s Blanchard grinders. Using significantly greater horsepower than other grinding methods, Blanchard grinding removes large amounts of stock quickly and efficiently.

IPMI works with a vast array of materials to fit your specific application.

  • Carbon & Alloy Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel
  • Brass
  • Plastics
  • Foam
  • Hardened Materials

Blanchard grinding is ideal for large parts such as rotary tables, mold plates and vacuum chambers. It adds size versatility, eliminates mismatches and speeds turnaround time on large parts when compared to fly cutting. This method provides a considerable time savings over surface grinding as well.


Known for our capability to produce precision machined parts in either a high or low volume environment, IPMI has expertise from rapid prototyping through mass production. Utilizing modern, high-speed machines and automation, IPMI delivers high quality parts at very competitive prices.
