Do I need a belt grinder and or a belt sander for my application?
Do I need a belt grinder and or a belt sander for my application? This is very common questions that comes up on a regular basis for many of our customers. We tell them it really depends what you want to accomplish and we ask them a couple of questions to see what direction we need to go in. Those two questions are as follows:
1. Do want to do general removal?
2. Do you want to really hog some metal?
Then once we know to the answer to either of these questions then we continue to ask a series of questions to make sure we find the right solution for them.
The belt sander was designed to do general material removal and the only area that you would sand on to do that metal removal is the platen. Also the SFPM of the belt sander is typically slower than the SFPM of the belt grinder which is typical double from what the SFPM of the belt sander. The belt grinder was designed to do heavy and quick metal removal. The belt on the grinder typically travels faster so there is quick metal removal and minimal heat build up.
