Selecting The Right Double-Sided Grinder
A double-sided grinder is an efficient grinding device consisting of an initial grinding surface that rotates clockwise, and then a second rotating surface that rotate anti-clockwise. The initial grinding surface may be made from diamond or a commercial variety of stone. This may also be made from ceramic, silicon carbide, quartz, or graphite. The second rotating surface may be made from any material desired, including steel, bronze, copper, or aluminum.
In general, a two-sided grinding tool consists of a turning disk and two or more rotating wheels. The two or more wheels work together by making abrasive contact with the surface of the material being ground, or the base material. The rough or ‘teded’ surface of the grinding tool is referred to a ‘turning disk’.
The two wheels can rotate in a vertical or horizontal position. In short, the vertical position provides for a lower grinding speed, but greater control. However, horizontal positions provide a higher grinding speed and greater ease in turning the grinding wheel. In addition to the two rotating wheels, there may be a support Holder attached to the machine. This holder is designed to provide support for the operator when working at a high-speed and with a lot of rotation.
Some grinders are referred to simply as grinders, while others have a variety of additional features. Some grinders may be designed to grind different materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, steel, or any other metal. Some grinders are designed to grind at an angle, while others are designed to be used in an upright position. Some grinders have a cooling unit and are capable of providing for a steady and consistent cooling process during operation.
There are two types of grinding machines that may be used: the rotary and the double-sided grinder. A rotary grinder has a housing that comprises two vertically positioned rotors and one or more supporting rollers that can rotate, making the grinding process easier. The other kind of grinding machine is the double-sided grinder, which has a housing that is composed of two rotating faces, allowing for two completely opposite directions to work.
Some of the characteristics of these types of machines include: variable speed drive, self-contained power supply, direct drive motor, high torque clutch, sealed bearing, fully adjustable clutch gear and ball bearings, and a variable speed cnc machine. The internal grinding cnc machine has many advantages over the rotary type, such as lower cost and greater accuracy. It is commonly used for precision surface grinding, polishing and other finishing processes. The variable speed drive allows the machine to work at a constant speed, which eliminates interference from other machinery.
