Diversifying your knowledge of our capabilities


mattison grinderDMSI has four vertical spindle Blanchard grinders and three Mattison reciprocating grinders (two horizontal head, one vertical head) that take on stock as massive as 30” x 30” x 240”.  Our 250 hp Blanchard grinder handles stock as large as 100” in diameter. Our three double disc grinders are unique in that we can grind both sides simultaneously. We have 250 hp grinders equipped with magnetic chucks which give us the ability to run miltiple parts at the same time.

All our grinders remove stock while maintaining close tolerances, virtually eliminating the cost for additional milling operations.
