Metal surface grinding delivers specific finish characteristics

Titletown Manufacturing uses a variety of machines for high-quality parts

Metal surface grinding is a general term that refers to a variety of precision machining operations geared toward bringing different shapes of stock to desired dimensions and finishes. Titletown Manufacturing performs three primary metal surface grinding operations in producing parts for OEM machinery.

Outside diameter (OD) grinding – This version of metal surface grinding focuses on taking cylindrical stock down to a target diameter. Our experienced team performs OD grinding of rolls to within .0002 inches of spec, with finishes as fine as 8 Ra (roughness average). Our equipment can handle pieces as large as 95 inches in length and 16 inches in diameter.

Blanchard grinding – This type of metal surface grinding utilizes a 40-inch diameter table to hold flat plates of stock. This process is appropriate for larger pieces of material and removes stock from one side. Blanchard grinding leaves a recognizable mark on the surface with finishes of approximately 65 Ra. We use the Blanchard process to grind frames to parallel within five-thousandths of an inch.

Surface grinding – Typically used on smaller pieces, approximately 12 x 24 inches or less, this metal surface grinding technique also can achieve results within .0002 inches. Surface grinding usually is one of the final steps in machining a part.

OEMs depend on high-quality metal surface grinding

Titletown Manufacturing’s consistent investments in equipment enable our team to perform premium metal surface grinding in Green Bay that our OEM customers expect. This aspect of precision machining plays an important role in the production of frames and other large parts used in machine assembly.

In addition to providing equipment capable of delivering exceptional results, our Wisconsin workforce has now been utilizing the expanded workspace available in our Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, facility for more than a year. The spacious assembly bay gives us the ability to complete a wider array of assembly jobs in a safe, comfortable environment.

Metal Surface Grinding Capabilities Separate Titletown Manufacturing

Customers Benefit from Comprehensive CNC Machining Services

Titletown Manufacturing LLC’s enhanced metal surface grinding capabilities provide benefits for industrial customers looking to reduce turnaround times and minimize vendors within their supply chain. The company’s grinding expertise can produce grinding finishes with Ra from 16 to 32.

Metal surface grinding in Green Bay, Wisconsin, often requires the involvement of a grinding shop as well as a metal fabrication job shop to complete the project. Titletown Manufacturing brings multiple fabrication aspects under one roof, highlighted by the ability to achieve exceptionally tight tolerances throughout the process.

“We can produce high-quality parts from start to finish. We’re not just a grinding shop,” said Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Dan Hilliard. “Most of our job shop competitors don’t have the grinding equipment that we do. It allows us to have better control of operations and overall quality.”

Metal Surface Grinding Technology

Titletown Manufacturing’s Blanchard surface grinder features a 40-inch diameter table. Its proven technology enables technicians to grind castings and other metal shapes flat before they are milled. This initial production step brings standard steel, stainless steel and hardened materials to tolerances of .003 of an inch and parallels to .005 of an inch.

The company’s other surface grinding equipment is used for producing high-quality finishes and tight tolerance thickness to .0005 of an inch. The machine can handle mild steel through materials with hardness levels up to Rockwell 60.

Titletown Manufacturing’s OD (outside diameter) grinders are ideal for the paper converting equipment, paper printing equipment and packaging equipment. These machines can handle stock up to 13 inches in diameter and 120 inches long, with tolerances down to .0002 in diameter.

“Most job shops don’t have the Blanchard and OD surface grinders,” said Titletown Manufacturing co-owner Chris Fuss. “These machines help us complete virtually every aspect of a project other than purchasing the material. Since we’re not outsourcing tasks, we’re able to provide superior in-house quality control over the entire manufacturing process.”
