Specimen grinding machine for core samples and cylindrical specimens

Form + Test Prüfsysteme in Riedlingen has come up with a compact, favourably priced, easy-to-use grinding machine for preparing core samples and cylindrical specimens.

The device essentially consists of an electric motor mounted on a swivel head and a diamond cup wheel (130 mm diameter). Mounted on a height-adjustable grinding table, the specimens are fine-fed for grinding at 0.4 mm infeed per revolution. Thanks to the mounting fixture’s 180° swivel range, the specimens need no remounting.

The grinding range enables processing of specimens with dimensions up to 85 mm x 85 mm or 110 mm in diameter. The clamping height ranges from 100 mm max. to 40 mm min. The plane-parallel grinding range is 0.05 mm.
