SPE were recently commissioned to produce a multiple triple head surface grinding attachment to fit a customer’s MP6000 sit and ride preparation unit.
The MP6000 was originally purchased with shot blasting and planing attachments however SPE’s client was awarded a large outdoor grinding contract and proposed to use the MP6000 to carry out this work.
SPE engineers designed and manufactured a solution based on the companies proven DFG700 planetary grinding machine.
The planetary grinding heads were mounted into a custom built support frame that allowed the heads to pivot in all directions.
The whole attachment raised up and down hydraulically to allow the fitting of various grades of diamond grinding tools.
Each head could be started / stopped and the grinding speed adjusted independently in a seated position by the operator.
The MPG700 triple was used to grind through various stages completing 10,000m2 of a sea front promenade to the specified finish in just one week.
