Vertical Rotary Grinders

Vertical Rotary Grinders provide high efficiency compared to conventional surface grinders due to the amount of grinding wheel in contact with the surface area of the workpiece. Their extremely rugged construction and high grinding power allow heavy and rapid stock removal for large castings and plates.


Vertical Grinding Benefits

The primary benefit of vertical rotary grinding is the heavy stock removal rates for all magnetic and non-magnetic materials. When a substantial amount of material has to be removed quickly and efficiently, vertical rotary grinding is more cost-effective than other methods because of the available horsepower (200 hp).

The same Vertical Rotary Grinder is an economical method for finish sizing large steel plates, metal fabrications, and castings - ahead of surface grinding and CNC milling for large plate finishing. Vertical rotary grinding multiple small parts in batches results in consistent thickness and surface finish, eliminating mismatches.

Optional full enclosure and dust/mist collection systems eliminate grinding mist which contributes to a cleaner work environment.

Machining Applications

Large diameter and short length workpieces are ideal for vertical rotary grinding making automotive parts an ideal application of these tools. Another application includes machine tool spindle housing creation.
