Composite Strips | DD-7

Challenge: To grind both sides of composite strips (fiberglass), fully automated at high speed with tight tolerances.


Using Glebar’s DD-7 Double Disc Grinder (one of the smallest on the market), the composite strip material was successfully ground from spool to spool. The machine’s tractor feed extractor and 10” grinding wheels were instrumental in making this happen.

Feed rate: 6 meters per minute | 19 feet per minute

Grind: 25mm strip 2.9 down to 2.42

Material removal: 0.25mm per side 0.010” per side

Tolerance: (+/-0.025mm) +/-0.001”
