Palmgren Releases Durable, Heavy-Duty Bench Grinders
Palmgren’s heavy-duty bench grinder provides what the company says are longer duty cycles under load and less speed degradation than competing products.
Palmgren designed and built its heavy-duty bench grinders with high-quality motors specifically for heavy-duty and long-duty work cycles. The company says its grinders provide four to seven times longer duty cycles under load and eight times less speed degradation than competing products.
The heavy-duty bench grinders provide smooth, quiet power for cleaning, deburring, chamfering and sharpening. Grinder features include adjustable tool rests, adjustable eye shields and spark guards. The grinders are available in wheel diameters ranging from 6” to 12”.
Various techniques address the challenge of getting a clean machined feature at microscopic scales.
Although they’re more eager than ever to embrace robotic arms, manufacturers that don’t look beyond the machine tool risk missing out on opportunities to automate processes like deburring, cleaning and inspection.
