In the world of shorter-run and engineered-to-order production, fabricators want to keep their machines at near or full capacity, which means the business is making money. To accomplish this, the flow of information coming out of the front office has to be fast enough to drive the shop floor automation.
The PIPE-MAX is a combination grinder and pipe belt sander. The front hard rubber contact roller drives the abrasive belt to grind flat surfaces. It removes weld seams in a straight line, without leaving edges or a wavy finish. For sanding pipes or handrails, the sanding belt follows every contour to grind and polish up to a high-gloss finish. Ideal for stainless steel, aluminum and high-quality metals.
