The vertical grinder is a very good choice for carving hard materials such as granite and marble. The main benefit of the vertical grinder is that the user can control how much material is ground in any given time. This is a far better solution than operating a manually operated grinding machine. Another benefit of a vertical grinder is that the user can set the speed and angle of the rotary stroke to suit the requirement of the material being ground.
When using an abrasive wheel at a high rotation speed, the abrasive particles attached to the wheel have the tendency to float away from the wheel. In order to prevent this phenomenon all you need to do is to add a little bit of oil to the rotating component. Once you have done this, you will need to turn the vertical grinder on and run it for a while. After running the machine for a while, it is likely that the beads of the abrasive will fall off and form an exact round shape at the bottom of the grinding wheel.
These are commonly used in the production environment because they can be easily customized to the exact specification needed for any particular job. The stock removal units in these vertical grinder models are typically made from steel or aluminum, which is an integral part of the design. The stock removal unit is also known as the ‘kickback unit’. Usually, the kickback unit is equipped with an anti-vibration system to prevent the unit from knocking down the work surface during operation. Some of the best 56v series vertical grinders are equipped with universal joint locking mechanism, which allows the machine to lock in the proper position.
Another type of vertical grinder is the angle grinder, which grinds fine and even materials like fine diamond grit, aluminum oxide, and even brass. The angle grinder usually has two speeds, which allows the user to grind fine and even materials irrespective of their size. However, the disadvantage of using angle grinders is that they have smaller and harder grinding discs than the stock rotary abrasive wheels.
The next type of vertical grinder is the speed control governor, which offers excellent performance and flexibility in working environments where high rpm operation is required. The speed control governor normally features variable speeds and even braking capabilities for controlling the speed of the grinding wheel. The majority of the RPM Governor units are manufactured from stainless steel, which makes it very durable and long-lasting.
An additional feature common in many of the vertical units is the ability to increase the speed of the vertical grinder through the use of an air kit. These air kits usually come with two different sizes of air brushes. These brushes are used to increase the speed of the vertical grinder depending on the need, such as low rpm to finish large or long projects. Usually, these air kits are made from high quality nylon, which makes it ideal for applications where there is high wear and tear on the vertical shaft.
