A double-sided, also known as a double-tied grinder, is an advanced form of grinding machine. It consists of two cutting surfaces mounted on two cutting rollers which slide over each other in a rotating motion over a fixed rotating face.
The cutting surfaces on these grinders are usually made of corrosion-resistant steel, forged or coated with a hard wearing finish, and sometimes hardened and treated for wear resistance. They usually have a wide range of speeds to perform the work at varied speeds.
They can be used both at home and in the industrial setting for hard and soft wood working, metalworking, wood carving and jewelry making. These tools are normally used for cutting and polishing. A lot of these machines come with a grinding wheel, which is mounted above the work area.
Grinding machine is mostly operated by a motor that runs at high speeds. It is usually equipped with an automatic shut off switch so that when it is not in use, it automatically shuts off.
In order to operate a single-axis grinding machine, you will need to have some knowledge about mechanics and some training on how to operate it correctly. This type of machine is used mainly for commercial applications, but there are some types of grinders for the home as well.
For smaller shops, a single-axis machine is more suitable as it does not require much maintenance and is also faster, which is perfect for small shops. However, if you are looking for a small shop grinder then the double-side grinder may be a better choice.
