Grinds at 45° or 90° orientation

The material range was very vast, including grinding both rounds and slabs. The machine had to be designed to be completely set on mill level (no pits) and be no taller than 20’ to fit under their overhead crane. Automatic round material loading and unloading tables.



The range of material sizes, using two different in-line grinding cars (rounds car and slab car), on car automatic slab turning. The customer is grinding the material at various stages of their process. The material is being ground prior to being forged and after being forged so it could be finished further down line. The customer’s increased demand required them to need a new grinder. Their existing grinder was limited on capabilities and did not offer the ability to grind both rounds or slabs and did not have automatic onboard slab turning. This machines offered significant benefits in product through put and time with decreased material handling times.This machine was very impressive in size and complete capabilities!
