The easy way to prepare steel plate for welding

This demonstration video shows the GRIT by Fein GI75 Belt Linisher and the GIM Mobile Chassis being used in conjuction to prepare steel for welding.

As with the Fein GX range, this is a modular system – so the linisher can be used as a stand alone machine, or you can add attachments such as a notching unit or chassis as shown in the video.

The application shown is weld preparation as part of the manufacture of a bridge.

The mild steel plate that Paul (the Fein demonstrator) is working on has a layer of scale on the surface which must be removed before the welding of girders to the plate can begin.

At present the company are using 4.1/2” grinders to remove the scale.

The use of this mobile linisher has a number of benefits:

Firstly  – TIME

The time taken to grind one entire length of the plate was approximately 30 seconds. This would normally take an estimated 20 minutes with a hand grinder.


Rather than being on hands and knees, the user can walk along the plate comfortably as if pushing a wheelbarrow.


When using a hand grinder the finish can vary dramatically as the operator tires and the sanding disc wears- this is far less likely using the GRIT GI modular system.


The use of a hand grinder is very often restricted  to a limited number of hours per person under health and safety legislation. The GRIT system is not even registered as having a rating, as the vibration felt is negligible.


Imagine the thought of hours and hours of back breaking work with a hand grinder compared to the comfort of use of this GRIT system – a happy worker is an efficient worker!
