Project Description

8100 SERIES | WET

The 8100 Series is the largest machine offered; using a reciprocating bed, high horsepower, and manufactured in The Netherlands. This machine uses wide belt coated abrasives to hold very tight tolerances; and is regularly used to grind titanium, molybdenum, stainless steel, aluminum nickel alloys, and carbon steel.

EACH MACHINE IS CUSTOM BUILT TO YOUR SPECS

Calibrating is performed with the use of a wide belt abrasive to reduce the thickness of a component to a fixed dimension. This often requires a slow conveyor speed or a reciprocating table with high horsepower per inch of the sanding belt, hard sanding rollers, high abrasive belt speeds, and coarse grit abrasive belts. Milling with a cutting tool is the fastest and least expensive way to calibrate, but the finish is often too rough. Stone grinding provides an excellent finish, but is slow and expensive. Calibrating with a wide belt machine typically has a cost closer to milling but a finish closer to stone grinding, making it an excellent alternative.
