Intially designed as a custom grinder for a specific customer need, Kalamazoo Industries’ BG142 back-stand belt grinder is now part of the company’s standard line. It offers multi-position contact from vertical to horizontal and full work movement from left to right. The grinder is designed for aggressive grinding and beveling with the platen in place. Remove the platen, and the narrow belt allows slack-belt grinding and finishing of tight inside-radius parts.

The BG142 grinder features a 1" × 42" grinding belt with 6" × 2," serrated, 70-duro contact wheel; a removable platen; and a 1 ¾" × 4" worktable. A ½-hp, 110-V TEFC motor delivers a speed of 5,400 sfm.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.

  • Centerless Grinding: Not Magic!

    Achieving consistent and quality results from the centerless grinding process requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals. Most application problems associated with centerless grinding derive from a misunderstanding of the basics. This article explains why the centerless process works and how to use it most effectively in your shop.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.
