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.

Capital expenditures can drain the life out of your profitability. That’s where Titletown Manufacturing’s ability to leverage precision machining expertise can generate a significant return on investment.

In addition to producing a steady stream of new parts, our team can re-engineer older parts that are out of stock or no longer in production. This enables our customers to run equipment longer and more efficiently than otherwise might be possible. In many cases, our precision machining abilities produce re-engineered parts that perform better than the originals.
