The Desktop Manuel Grinding Machine is quickly becoming the chosen alternative to the traditional rubber or Sulphur capping method used by Quality Construction Labs.

The Desktop Manuel Grinding Machine can be used to grind concrete cylinder specimens, rocks, natural stones, tiles, block pavers, ceramic materials etc.

The Desktop Manuel Grinding Machine is ideal for commercial testing labs and large producers who need to prepare a lot of cylinders for testing or wait times associated with capping compounds.

Not only is it a safer and healthier option, it also provides a better result in surface finish as well as flatness.

The maximum tolerance on the flatness of the potential load bearing surface (the ends of compression test specimens) is 0.050 mm for concrete samples.

The deviation of perpendicularity of the side, with reference to the end faces is 0,5° for core samples.

The safe and ergonomic design prevents the user to exposure to water and dust and provides easy access to the water inlet and outlet. For a safer usage On-Off switch is cover with waterproof box.

All parts of the Desktop Manuel Grinding Machine is electrostatically painted steel to prevent corrosion of water and concrete.

Used a high-quality genuine diamond cutting wheel, which is supplied, to produce an accurate, smooth finish. The wheel and device unique design helps to make more grinding with one wheel compare to other grinding machines.

Adapters of cylinders and core samples can be easily mounted and removed.

The Desktop Manuel Grinding Machine is supplied with Diamond Cutting Wheel and Adaptor for Ø150 mm cylinder samples.

Other adapters should be ordered separately.
