APS 618 & 818 Surface Grinder

The New APS Precision Surface Grinding Machine

This Superior Precision surface grinder has been developed & designed in the UK by a market leader in grinding technology to European standards and requirements, and offers a cost effective solution to your precision toolroom grinding needs.

Its robust construction, low friction saddle with wide support, ensures high quality and a rigid stable workstation.

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.
