High performance and cost-effectiveness for belt grinding

30 October 2009

FEIN launches the belt grinder GRIT GIS 150, under the GRIT brand name, expanding its range of belt grinders for industrial and volume production.

The stationary grinder has been developed for the metalworking industry where extreme grinding of steel and stainless steel takes place. Offering a belt width of 150 millimetres, this machine extends the GRIT GIS industrial range for standard professional applications in metal and steel construction. The belt grinders GRIT GIS 75 and GIS 150 are very powerful, offer outstanding material removal and are easy to install.

Effective material removal in continuous use
GRIT GIS belt grinders are ideal for coarse grinding and deburring of steel and stainless steel. A ro bust three-phase motor with an output of four kilowatts ensures optimum progress of work. The contact plate with helical groove acts like teeth when grinding, thereby increasing the amount of material removed. The force is transferred with virtually no slip to the grinding belt by a drive pulley coated with polyurethane. Polyurethane coatings improve friction resistance and increase the pulley’s service life considerably over those made from aluminium. Quiet operation and low vibration levels also make the user’s work much more pleasant.

Efficient and convenient grinding
The belt tensioning system patented by GRIT uses a gas spring to automatically control tension and compensate for length tolerances, allowing belts to be easily stretched. The surface grinding table makes the linear grinding of flat materials and profiles possible. When not in use, it can be lowered to preserve the graphite lining between the grinding table and belt. This also g reatly cuts maintenance costs. The adjustable work height, removable swarf container and eye guard which can be adjusted without the need for tools make the machine particularly user-friendly. A connection to external extraction systems is integrated. All GRIT GIS belt grinders for industrial applications will in future be supplied with a phase-changing connector allowing the machines to be commissioned without an electrician having to be present.

Complete system for professional metalworking
Alongside the GRIT GIS belt grinders for standard applications, FEIN also produces a modular grinding range. Basic machines can be extended with radius, round or surface grinding modules as necessary. The GRIT GI models are used in industry and volume production. The GRIT GX is intended for manual workers and small companies. Professional grinding belts designed especially for the GRIT belt grinders round off the FEIN range. High-performance grinding belts fro m the R-Series deliver effective material removal over a long service life. They are also suited to working with high-alloy steel.
