ABRASIVE
Make EasyWork Out Of A Daily Grind
As manufacturing materials advance, so do the requirements
for the tools to work on them. This means new speeds and
attachments to handle the demands of increased precision
and waste reduction.
The right tool for the job
When selecting a grinder and accessories for your application,
be sure to choose one with enough horsepower to drive the
abrasive wheel you are using. This will allow the grinder’s
speed to work for you. When the operator bears down on
an under-powered tool, it slows the rpm output and reduces
overall efficiency.
Industrial Grinders
Sioux has a great selection of inline and right angle grinders
with collet sizes from 1/4" to 1/2" & 3 mm – 8 mm for a variety
of applications. Speeds range up to 25,000 rpm to get the
job done quickly and efficiently. Some models offer a choice
of throttle control that is most convenient and comfortable for
the operator. We also have extended models that fit into tight,
hard to reach places.
Abrasive Grinders
Principles of Operation
When wheels, pads or other accessories are attached to the
spindle, the tool can be used to remove metal or composites
in a variety of ways.
Abrasive Safety
Grinders can cause flying particles. Proper eye protection
must be worn at all times by tools user and bystanders.
Under improper use and wear, Air grinders can cause serious
injury and death. The following instructions are important
and should be followed explicitly but cannot cover all
contingencies. Good judgment is always required.
Using a grinder without a guard can cause injury. The grinder
is to be operated with an appropriate guard at all times when
a grinding wheel is used. Replace a damaged guard. The
guard is to be the proper one for the wheel being used.
Damaged grinding wheels can explode. Check the wheel for
damage before mounting, such as chips and cracks. Handle
wheels carefully to avoid dropping or bumping. Protect
wheels from extremes of temperature and humidity. Check
wheels immediately after any unusual occurrence that may
damage wheels.
Over speeding wheels can explode. Check the speed rating
of the accessory or the speed printed on the wheel. This
speed must be greater than the name plate speed of the
grinder/sander and the actual speed of the grinder/sander as
measured with a tachometer.
Unsecured work can move violently when grinding. Secure
work; use clamps or vise to hold work.
Grinders may coast for a short time after the trigger is
released. Be sure tool has come to a complete stop before
setting it aside.
Grinding wheels that malfunction or spin off can cause injury.
Be certain that all wheel, flanges, nuts and related equipment
are in good shape, the proper ones for the type and size of
wheel being used, and are securely fastened.
Exploding wheels can cause injury or death. If the normal
sound of the grinder changes, or if it vibrates excessively,
shut it off immediately, remove the wheel, and check speed
with tachometer.
Unexpected starts can cause injury. Be sure actuator is off
before hooking up air.
Breathing grinding dust can cause injury. Do not breathe
grinding dust. Use approved mask.
Explosions and fire can cause injury. Only grind metals if the
area is free of combustible or explosive materials or vapors.
Contact with rotating grinding wheels can cause injury. Keep
hands and other body parts away from grinding wheels and
sanding pads and disks to prevent cutting or pinching. Wear
protective clothing and gloves to protect hands.
Tools starting unexpectedly can cause injury. Always remove
tool from air supply and activate trigger to bleed air line before
making any adjustments, changing accessories, or doing any
maintenance or service on the tool.
Flying grinding wheels or accessories can cause injury.
Tighten collet securely. Match wheel or accessory shaft
diameter to chuck or collet.
Exploding or flying parts can cause injury. Do not use cut off
wheels or router bits with die grinders.
