The grinder is primarily used in design and technology for heavy general purpose bentonite grinding equipment production operations. Grinding is the process of removing material by the cutting action of the countless hard and sharp abrasive particles of a revolving grinding wheel as they come in contact with the surface to be ground. Zenith can provide the advanced and bentonite grinding equipment for the production process.
Bentonite grinding equipment
The bentonite grinding equipment grinding wheels are held between two flanged disks. Usually a roughing or coarse-grained wheel is mounted on one end of the spindle and a fine wheel on the other. A tool rest is provided for each wheel so that the work piece may be held or steadied while being ground.
The operator is protected against flying abrasive particles and ground material by the wheel guard and spark arrestors, which are integral parts of a machine. Safety glass shields are also provided for additional protection. The bentonite grinding equipment supports and rotates the grinding abrasive wheel and often supports and positions the workpiece in proper relation to the wheel.
The bentonite grinding machine production plant is used for roughing and finishing flat, cylindrical, and conical surfaces; finishing internal cylinders or bores; forming and sharpening cutting tools; snagging or removing rough projections from castings and stampings; and cleaning, polishing, and buffing surfaces. Once strictly a finishing machine, modem production grinding machines are used for complete roughing and finishing of certain classes of work.
The utility bentonite grinding machine is intended for off-hand grinding where the workpiece is supported in the hand and brought to bear against the rotating grinding abrasive wheel. The accuracy of this type of grinding machine depends on the operator’s dexterity, skill, and knowledge of the machine’s capabilities and the nature of the work. The utility grinding machine consists of a horizontally mounted motor with a grinding abrasive wheel attached to each end of the motor shaft.
The electric-motor-driven machine is simple and common. It may be bench-mounted or floor-mounted. Generally, the condition and design of the shaft bearings as well as the motor rating determine the wheel size capacity of the machine. Suitable wheel guards and tool rests are provided for safety and ease of operation. The bentonite grinding machines come in various sizes and shapes as listed below.
