For maximum performance in an affordable price, this grinder by Bosch is a great choice.
LSS 53 Vertical Grinder A dependable workhorse with long service life. The LSS 53 Vertical Grinder is sturdy and robust enough for even the toughest roughing tasks ensuring that it’s a good option when availability of personnel is of less importance. The flat-arm rigid design with an air-cooled nodular steel cylinder and air-powered stepped-set crank arm gives impressive long term service life and excellent durability. Its powerful air circulation system and dual vibratory cooling fans increase the cooling capacity, thus reducing heat generation from the workpiece itself. The vertical grinder also features variable-speed speed control and the ability to adjust damping forces during production on the part that need them most.
chuck quality is just as important to cost reduction as it is to overall performance, so the next step is to look at the design of the Vertical Grinder’s chuck. The chuck quality is what determines how much work piece can be ground in less time. The vertical grinder’s chuck quality can be directly influenced by the machine’s power supply, the type and number of spindles, the workpiece’s roundness and the machine’s design. The amount of workpiece surface that can be ground in less time is an important consideration for any machine, especially one used for producing large quantities of precision ground parts. The design of the Vertical Grinder ensures that the best possible chuck performance can be obtained, and the chuck should provide a fully adjustable range of operation that allows for a very effective use of its capabilities.
When looking at the chuck range of the vertical grinder, more than one set of specifications needs to be considered. If this is the first machine that will be used, a lower RPM motor is preferred. In some situations though, it may be worthwhile to invest in a high- RPM motor if the machine is to perform its intended function. Otherwise, the workpiece may not be able to meet the requirements that have been placed on it.
Also important is the clamping force applied to the Vertical Grinder. This force should allow the user to apply consistent pressure to the workpiece even when the chuck is unable to exert its full capacity due to poor chuck height or excessive stand rivet errors. The use of a heavy duty clamping force is especially important for areas where accuracy is critical. The clamping force required will also be determined by the diameter of the workpiece being cut, the roundness error that needs to be corrected and the distance at which the work needs to be placed. In most cases, it is much easier to achieve greater roundness error with less force than to achieve greater accuracy with a greater clamping force.
It should be noted that there are two types of operation with the vertical grinder: Face Grinding and Rockwell Grinding. In terms of face grinding, the workpiece is placed in the vertical grinder chuck and the workpiece is moved into an open face position. The face grinders that are used in this type of Vertical Grinder setup typically have a single setting: either self-centered or centred. Centered is the more traditional method and should only be used when accuracy and speed are of the highest importance.
