We are asked frequently, whether we are selling the in-situ machining tools that we have developed and manufactured and that our specialists use in the field. While such requests are of course flattering and while we appreciate that other companies find our tools appealing and would like to purchase them, we have up to today always politely declined such request. The reason is that we first and foremost see ourselves as a top-notch in-situ machining company and not as a tool manufacturer. Our tools are thus a means to end – the more accurate and efficient they are, the better the result of our machining assignment that our customer comes to enjoy.
Our very newest Light Surface Grinding machine (LSG) has now proven to be so popular, that we have decided to break with tradition and to make it available for sale.
The machine was designed to be as compact and portable as possible. It has an adjustable base, no heavy adapter plates are therefore necessary. Its total weight is 30 kg (66 lbs). This is significantly less than any comparable machine currently on the market and means that it does not have to be sent as cargo to a ship or power plant, but can be brought along as checked-in luggage.
The tool’s main purpose is to quickly and accurately skim the cylinder liner landing surfaces at the top of medium-speed engine blocks. It can be used to machine diameters of 360 – 670 mm, which makes it suitable for engines with a bore size of 260 – 500 mm. Additional accessories to also skim the landing surface on the cylinder liner are also available.
The advantages of the Light Surface Grinder (LSG) are many:
- High accuracy
- Fast to set up and easy to use
- Compact design
- No adapter plates are necessary as the machine’s base is continuously adjustable
- A single machine covers the range from ⌀ 360 – 670 mm
- Total weight = 30 kg (66 lbs)
