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.
EASE OF USE
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!
