There are thousands of traditional swingframe grinders in operation around the world. They require a significant physical input from the operator in order to be effective and over a shift the efficiency drops considerably.
Clansman approach has been to take the man away from the direct contact with the source of fatigue and place him in a cabin with a well proven control system.
The flexibility of the Clansman G45 when coupled with a Clansman turntable allow castings to be round on all surfaces.
The G45 utilises a 45Kw electric motor driving a grinding spindle through a multiple "V" belt drive.
The G45 needs to be enclosed in a grinding cell to protect the operators, but due to its compact size, the extraction for the cell can be kept to a minimum.
Initial results indicate that the G45 has the ability to remove the same amount of metal as 8 swing frame grinders over an 8 hour shift.
