Why Choose a Vertical Grinder?
What is a vertical grinder? How does it work? Where can you get one? These are all good questions that you should consider before purchasing a vertical grinder. A vertical grinder, also called a scroll grinder with a spinning blade, are like regular grinders, except they have no flat surfaces, which enables them to grind more materials in a greater depth than normal grinders. However, some grinders come with a rubber shield to keep the blades from cutting into the stainless steel sheet metal, while others come without this shield.
There are two common types of grinders: those that need to be motor driven and those that run off a counter current. The motor driven vertical grinder is made of a large motor that is usually mounted on the machine’s front or rear. Some grinders may also be motor driven and have an attached saw that can be manually turned by using the appropriate control buttons. They are most often used in heavy duty applications. The counter current vertical grinder is run entirely off of a 9 volt battery and has a small blade that is connected to a small electric motor.
So, how is a vertical grinder different than a traditional chuck? The main difference is that the two machines are designed to work in unison, pushing the workpiece against the workpiece, without causing movement or interruptions in the work. Therefore, there is a greater ability to control the speed of the vertical grinder. This allows for a fine degree of control when working with very large pieces of heavy gauge metal. The vertical grinder also provides a greater degree of accuracy in completing long runs. While a chuck may soon give way under excessive pressure from a larger piece of metal, the motor driven vertical grinder can handle larger pieces before the chuck gives way.
A vertical grinder also has the advantage of providing a faster and more accurate type of cutting. This is accomplished through a greater clamping force. With a greater clamping force, the operator can reduce the amount of distortion caused by contact metal vibrations and increase the roundness error of the workpiece. This type of reduction in distortion allows the operator to work more quickly and produce a more accurate cut.
The design of the vertical grinder also provides some unique benefits. Because it uses a counterweight, it requires almost no maintenance or lubrication of any kind. In addition to this, since there is no large permanent weight limit, the owner can use the machine in virtually any environment and on nearly any sized piece of work.
To choose the right vertical grinder for your needs, you should consider the torque, horsepower, roundness error, and clamping force of each machine. Then compare these values to the specific application where you will be using the grinder. By ensuring that you are purchasing a machine that meets your specific needs and that it has all of the benefits you want, you will be sure to purchase the appropriate piece for your needs. If you are not sure which machine would best meet your needs, contact a dealer who specializes in these machines. They can assist you with your selection and guide you toward making an informed decision.
