Centro-Metalcut gears up for production on a large Conditioning Grinder

Rockford, IL, May 2, 2016 – Centro-Metalcut, a world-class manufacturer of Abrasive Cutoff Saws and Conditioning Grinders for the steel industry is gearing up for production on a large Conditioning Grinder with some impressive features.

The grinder, a 400HP stationary grinding machine features a 90/45 degree grinding head, electric car drive system.  The machine will have dual grinding cars; a rounds grind car and a slab grind car that allows onboard slab turning more than 20tons (over 40,000lbs), which will allow for increased production capabilities through a reduction in material handling time.  Material load and unload tables will be supplied with the machine as well.

Like all Centro-Metalcut machines, the grinder is a custom-engineered design.  It will include constant load monitoring technology which offers benefits such as constant surface speed while grinding, increased quality of the end product, increased grinding wheel life, fast and compact design, the highest degree of safety, and improved surface finish. 

The grinder, whose final home will stay in the United States, is set to be complete in late 2016.  Centro-Metalcut plans to have an open house at their facility in Rockford, IL in Fall 2016 for current and potential customers, vendors and employees to see the final machine in action.
