The APS 1640 Surface Grinder

The APS 1640 Surface Grinder

A high capacity precision surface grinder. Designed to meet Andmar's demanding customers needs. Built with superior rigid construction for greater stock removal and accuracy.

The vertical slide is constructed using highly sensitive, linear bearing guideways. They support a Heavy Duty direct drive ball bearing spindle with the choice of 3hp or 5hp motors.

The filtered and monitored no loss gravity fed Lubrication system feeds the low friction table & cross slides. High accuracy, long life ballscrews drive the downfeed and crossfeed and are adequately protected against abrasive wear & tear.
