C-1450 Automatic concrete cylinder end grinder


ASTM C39,D4543,C192,C31 EN 12390-2


Surfaces are always in conformance to ASTM or EN. Surfaces are ground plane and parallel within ±0.002" (0.05mm). It is particularly recommended when testing specimens where design strengths exceed 7000 psi (48.3mPa) and eliminates necessity of capping ends. Many different specimen sizes can be accommodated up to a maximum height of 14.5" (370mm). The machine can process at one time any one of the following sizes:

 2x cylinders 6x12" (150x300mm)
 2x cylinders 4x8" (100x200mm)
 4x cylinders .08 - 3"
 3x cubes 4" (100mm)
 2x cubes 6"(150mm)
 2x cubes 8"(200mm)

Specimens are securely held in place by a special jig which included. The 2-speed abrasive head moves in 2 directions as well as up and down. Vertical movement is accurate to 0.02" (0.05mm).
