A double-sided grinder is an exceptional grinding device consisting of two rotating faces that rotate both clockwise and anticlockwise. The first rotating double-sided face is commonly called a fixed face. The second rotating face is known as variable face, which includes a milling attachment for making shallow or deep cuts, and possibly a chisel or a gouger attachment for clearing work on the workpiece surface. In this type of grinder, the face can be left blank, but should be precisely cut with precise angles so that the base of the tool can spin around it. This grinding device is especially suitable for fine work on metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel, and nickel. A chuck type machine may also be used.
These types of grinders are usually equipped with variable-speed grinders, which enable you to adjust the speed of the grinding tool’s rotation. The two-sided face of the double-sided grinder has a pair of cutting edges, with each pair having a distinct length. To prepare metal sheets of any thickness, you must use a wide-toothed grinding tool that can do both coarse and finer scratches. A fine-grindered material requires a specific abrasive to bring out its best qualities.
A fine and finely honed product take abrasive or polish with a fine degree of force, which is achieved by using a polishing compound on the cutting edge of the grinder. The polishing compound is usually a silicon compound, but you can also use other carbide or diamond-carbide compounds as polishing compounds. The advantage of using these compounds is that they can work well even on very rough and dull surfaces.
On the other hand, abrasives with a coarse texture need a higher degree of force to grind stones, tiles, and other rough materials. These compounds will not work as effectively as the carbide compounds in a double-sided grinder, since grit from coarse materials will be missed by this tool. Polishing pads are often included in these types of machines. They are ideal for application work and grinding and are generally used along with the grinding tools.
There are two basic types of grinders – single-sided and double-sided grinders. If you are looking for a machine that can grind both metals and nonferrous materials, you should consider a dual-sided grinder. Dual-sided grinders have an attachment to the workplace that can be used to grind in different directions. This feature makes them particularly useful for working with a variety of different materials.
The latest technology in flat workpieces is represented in the Nixie blade. Nixie blades are designed to be user friendly for a wide range of operators, even though they use a lot of operator force. For small to medium size flat workpieces, a fdg-700 is a good choice.
