Belt Grinder with Easy-to-Reposition Head

All an operator needs to change the grinding head on the BG448 from Kalamazoo Industries from vertical to horizontal (or any position between) is an Allen wrench. Insert wrench in holes on the contact wheel, loosen the socket head cap screws slightly, tilt head, and re-secure.

Kalamazoo Industries’ BG448 4-by-48-inch abrasive belt grinder can be used to bevel and deburr, square an end, round corners, and contour. The 228-pound (with stand) machine is 14 inches long, 18 inches wide, and 26 inches high.

Designed for a customer’s specific grinding application, the Kalamazoo Industries Inc. (Kalamazoo, MI) BG448 4-by-48-inch abrasive belt grinder has a 3-horsepower motor with a 7200 SFPM surface speed for fast metal removal with minimal heat. The machine comes with a 4-by-8-inch 70 Duro serrated contact wheel, but other contact wheels are available. The machine features a multiposition grinding head that tilts from vertical to horizontal, reversible and removable 4-by-10-inch steel platen, 4-by-10-inch work surface, quick-belt change mechanism, and adjustable 8-by-8-inch cast iron work table with 5/8-inch slot.
