The flexibility of the Clansman G45 when coupled with a Clansman turntable allow castings to be ground on all surfaces.
The G45 utilises a 45Kw electric motor driving a grinding spindle through a multiple “V” belt drive.
The G45 needs to be enclosed in a grinding cell to protect the operators, but due to its compact size, the extraction for the cell can be kept to a minimum.
The G45 grinder is designed as a direct replacement for swing frame grinders. It has a grinding power of 45kW, and we estimate can complete the work of approximately 8 swing frame grinders. It has 4 axes of moment – vertical, horizontal, slew and roll.
The grinding head can tilt ±20°. This type of machine is only really suited for heavy duty grinding on flat surfaces – for example riser stubs.
The G45 grinder is fitted with a 500mm diameter grinding wheel, but is it is difficult to change this to a smaller size due to the size of the grinding head – it makes it very difficult to see a smaller stone.
