Blanchard Grinding We have four different size blanchard grinders that we use. These grinders usesignificantly greater horsepower than other grinding methods. Blanchard grinding (also referred to as rotary surface grinding) removes large quantities of stock efficiently& moreeconomically. This method adds size, versatility, eliminates mismatches, &speeds turnaround time on large parts. When compared to flycutting; it saves time over surface grinding as well.
You can reduce turnaround time and save on pre-machining costs by simultaneously Blanchard grinding multiple parts creating further efficiencies. Multiple part grinding, along with cutting a large, blanchard-ground blank into smaller parts, provides uniform part-to-part thickness, tolerances, and surface finishes at a lower unit cost.
We offer precision grinding to close tolerances at competitive prices. Surface finishing typically will run 63 microinch rms and as high as 32 microinch rms with certain materials. We have four large Blanchard Grinders to serve you.
PGI Steel has offered large Blanchard grinding and large surface grinding services since 1971. We Blanchard grind most sizes of alloy and carbon steel plates, carbon and tool steel bars, specialty steel parts, and welded fabrications. Furthermore, many of these parts and fabrications are often heavier precision steel parts versus micro finished parts.
Our No. 54-100 Rotary Surface Grinders have a 54 head diameter, a 100 OD magnetic chuck, and a 128 corner-to-corner swing has a vertical height capacity of 47 and can handle up to 14,000 lbs. on the table.
Our No. 32-60, Blanchard grinders have a table weight capacity of 6,000 lbs. and has a 32 head diameter, a 60 one piece steel magnetic chuck, and a 61 swing clearance inside the water guards providing high accuracy and high production repeatability.
We use several 5-15 ton overhead cranes and multiple jib cranes above our Blanchard grinders to meet demanding production requirements. We locate magnet cranes throughout our plants to move steel between different operations. These stations include flame cutting and plasma cutting, de-burring, annealing / stress relieving furnace, large machine shop and fabrication department.
When grinding large base plates, machine bases, and large precision ground parts, we can handle your job no matter the size. Ground plate is our specialty. We have some of the largest and most durable precision grinders in the Southeast, along with some of the most experienced and skilled grinding craftsmen and machinists in the Southeast.

Lumsden grinding is the removal of material by a grinding process using a plough grinding machine. Lumsden is the name of a make of machine and it has become synonymous with the process much as Hoover is to vacuum cleaners.
The advantage of this method of machining over other methods is much higher rates of material removal compared to surface grinding. Generally, larger areas can be machined without leaving witness lines than with conventional machining (milling).
The traditional method of holding work to be grounds is on a magnetic chuck, as Stainless Steel is non-magnetic we have developed a method of work holding which overcomes this. We have over 30 years experience of doing this.
The traditional method of holding work to be grounds is on a magnetic chuck, as Aluminium is non-magnetic we have developed a method of work holding which overcomes this. We have over 30 years experience of doing this.
We have a 1200mm rotary machine, this will grind any profile that will fit inside a 1200mm diameter circle, we also have a reciprocating machine that will grind any profile that will fit inside a rectangular area 2000mm x 600mm. All-in-all, we have the ability to grind up to 120 inches in diameter.
Our key operators have been working for us doing this process for 25+ years. We specialise in the grinding of stainless steel plate which is then used in the petrochemical, architectural & marine industries.
We can clean up both faces of a blank or alternatively just one. All machines are capable of grinding multiple components with advantages over other methods of machining ideal for jog bases and tool blocks which can be pre-ground to go straight on to a CNC machine.

Surface Grinding Like blanchard grinding, surface grinding uses a magnetic chuck and an abrasive wheel to remove material. Most surface grinders have the abrasive wheel spindle in a horizontal position. Surface grinding can produce a surface that is smoother, flatter and more parallel than blanchard grinding, and it is ordinarily used only for removing small quantities of material at a time. Grinding permits very accurate tolerances of less than 0.001 and allows for very smooth surface finishes up to 16 microinch RMS.
We have foursurface grinders at Withers Tool & Die. One of our machines has a vertical spindle and a magnetic chuck that pivots, which works well for grinding angle shear blades and performing other non-parallel applications. Our longest surface grinder has a magnetic chuck that is 240 long and 30 wide that has ground parts parallel within 0.0003 over that length.
