|Side grinding of stainless steel bars
“The TR series of machines from NS Maquinas are designed specifically for grinding of the edges on Stainless steel flat bars.
The machine utilizes a feed table, with downward facing pressure rollers to keep the material firmly against the conveyor feed belt and simply flows the material in a horizontal position past the linishing heads grinding a clean mechanical surface value on to the material.
The material is pushed against the linishing heads by 7, sprung loaded pressure rollers and has the capability to grind the edge of plate up to 300mm wide.
Ease of use is paramount in the design of TR series equipment. The abrasive linishing heads independently oscillate up and down, eliminating waste on the abrasive belt and ensuring that the maximum width of the belt is always consumed. The grinding head contact wheels are constructed of Nitrile, a robust, heat resistant material that offers long and durable service life. These wheels are manufactured at 90 Shore and run a serrated face to maximise the abrasive cutting action.
The standard TR machine is also fitted with flap wheels on the outgoing feed side, this lightly de-burrs the sharp edge that can be created when grinding the edge of flat bars, this task, is done in one action as the flat bars feed through the unit.
Adjustment of grinding pressures is easily and independently adjusted by the operator as they stand in front of the machine.”
