Model 482 Safety Rubber Grinder news

New Model 482 Safety Rubber Grinder

Mitchell Inc. introduces its new Model 482 Safety Rubber Grinder (Safety improvements & Electrical Update Option of Mitchell Model 48 High Speed Rubber Grinder). Improvements have been made in the areas of safety and ease of use, with the new Model 482 replacing the older Model 48 Grinder.

With improved safety and efficiency in mind, Mitchell has made several changes. Servo controls on the carriage eliminate the manually adjusted limit switches for the start and stop positions of the carriage. They are now controlled on the Allen Bradley Touch Screen HMI. With a Servo controlled carriage, the grinding wheel retreats safely behind a guard at the end of the grinding cycle, greatly improving safety for the machine operator. Servo controls also replace the manually operated slide adjustment of the grinding wheel. This allows for the finished diameter to be set on the touch screen.

Mitchell Inc. would be happy to quote a new Model 482 to suit your needs. Quotes can also be given for upgrades on an existing Model 48 to include these features, with required updating to electrical panel and operator controls.
