With over 50,000 units already supplied, Timesavers International is setting global standards in grinding machine solutions. The wide range of machines that Timesavers now offers in this sector is concentrated in a total of six specialist areas - deburring, finishing, edge rounding, removing laser edges and heavy slag, removing oxide skin, and precision grinding. The spotlight at EMO Hannover 2017 is on precision grinding in particular, with Timesavers premiering the latest generation of 81-series precision grinding machines.
The new 81-series machines produce metal sheets of extremely constant thickness thanks to a fixed grinding head that ensures a consistent distance between the grinding belt and slide. According to Timesavers, the tolerance for machining accuracy when grinding on both sides is an impressively low 25 micrometers. A further factor in this high precision is the cooling water, which is maintained at a constant 20 degrees Celsius and can even be reused multiple times following appropriate filtering. The 81 series can machine metal sheets up to 7.5 meters long with a minimum thickness of just 18 millimeters. The entire grinding head unit can also be infinitely adjusted in a vertical direction to achieve the required sheet thickness and compensate for wear of the grinding belt.
