The multi-purpose S272V belt grinder from Kalamazoo Industries features 3" and 1½" quick-change contact wheels, plus a platen that rotates 360 degrees. These components enable it to grind, shape, contour, snag and rough flat work, angles, and different shapes and styles of material, the company says.

The grinder includes a 2" × 72" belt with a throat 10" high and 13" deep. The 1-hp, direct-drive motor enables operation of the belt at 5,400 sfm. The machine is mounted on a heavy-duty DCV-6 dust collector base.

  • Vertical Grinding Has Advantages

    In vertical grinding, the workpiece is held upright in a rotary chuck with the grinding spindle overhead. This configuration can improve roundness, facilitate single-setup processing and prolong the life of the machine. Loading and unloading may gets easier, too. Workpieces with relatively large diameters and short lengths benefit the most from vertical grinding.
