Bench grinders are suitable for shaping, grinding and sharpening metal tools, tips, sheets and pieces in refurbishing, manufacturing and maintenance applications. These grinders generally feature an abrasive grinding wheel or belt that runs at high speeds to form, shape or smoothen a workpiece.
Dayton bench grinders use an electric motor for deburring, grinding, cleaning, sharpening and chamfering jobs of metal blocks or pieces. They have dynamically balanced armature assembly with sealed bearings for ensuring smooth running, noiseless operation and minimum vibrations. These Dayton grinders are equipped with grinding wheels or a wire brush having a large wheel to wheel clearance and OSHA compliant wheel guards for easy grinding of longer items and increased user safety. Dayton grinders have two separate wheels having different grit sizes for catering to diverse types of grinding & abrasive applications. They have heavy duty enclosed motors with 1/3 to 3 hp power outputs for rotating the wheels continuously at maximum speeds ranging from 1725 to 3450 rpm. The motors can also be fitted with a variable speed, controlled by a mechanical dial to change the wheel rotation speed. These Dayton bench grinders can be adjusted easily by the users to allow efficient tilt & angle grinding applications. They also have safety features like adjustable safety eye shields & easily positioned spark guards with hurricane bolts for protecting users & surrounding machinery from injuries or fire hazards. These Dayton grinders have aluminium & steel or cast iron construction for strength & corrosion resistance. Selected Dayton grinders have a pedestal floor stand with a quench tray for operating the unit while standing & reducing frequent bending related injuries to users. Some models of Dayton grinders come with a patented single dust port collection system for cleaning away grounded materials from the industrial work environments.
Choose from a wide range of these Dayton grinders, available in wheel diameters of 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches.
Dayton grinders are suitable for deburring, grinding, cleaning, sharpening and chamfering alloy or carbon metal pieces. It is generally used in construction, maintenance & refurbishing applications. Dayton grinders are also used to remove rust and even out rough edges on metal surfaces.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Raptor Supplies offer other types of finishing tools?
Yes, Raptor Supplies offers various types of finishing tools other than bench grinders, such as pneumatic-blast-cabinets, deburring blades and bench-buffers. Pneumatic blast cabinets are used to remove rust & old paint stains and smoothen rough surfaces by removing imperfections on objects. Deburring tools like handheld deburring blades remove burrs from the raw edges of tools & holes of a product. The bench buffers are ideal for polishing metal tools & tubing and creating a smooth surface.
What does a Dayton grinder's grit size signify?
The grit of a Dayton grinder refers to the size of abrasive materials present on the grinder. A high grit size (120 etc.) denotes the presence of finer abrasives in the grinder wheel, leading to smoother surface finishes. Lower grit sizes (30, 36 etc.) represent coarser abrasives that scrape off many materials faster. Choose according to your applications for coarse or fine grinding, while keeping in view the material (workpiece) properties.
What personal protection equipment (PPEs) are required while using Dayton bench grinders?
Users should wear safety glasses / face shields / goggles for protecting their face or eyes. They should also have gloves, aprons, safety shoes and breathing & hearing protection to prevent flying particles, noise & accidental dropping of tools.
What materials should never be ground on a Dayton bench grinding wheel?
Users should never grind wood, plastic or other non metallic materials using a Dayton grinder. These bench grinders are not designed to grind / sand these materials.
What to do in case of a Dayton grinder failure?
Assuming that Dayton grinder is supplied with the correct power supply and is the correct choice for grinding the workpiece material, the first thing to check is the status of the wiring connections, fuse & capacitor. Users should also check & clean dirt or dust accumulated wheels and shaft causing heating of the motor. Motor bearings should also be lubricated regularly for smooth operation. Users should take care that they do not wedge any material between the wheel and the guard to prevent stopping of the motor. They should also check for wear & tear on the bench grinder parts. Users may also face vibrations and irregular grinding during the operation due to improper mounting of the wheels or the unit on stands.
