The following services are just a few that are available from Sanders Unlimited:
Wide Belt Sander Repair
We repair most industrial wide belt sanders, including Timesavers, DMC, Costa, Heesemann.
Alignments on a Wide Belt Sander
Alignment of your sanding heads and contact drums, pinch rolls, shoes and platen assemblies is critical to achieve the best finish possible for your machine.
Includes resurfacing your conveyor bed and bed plates, retipping your shoe assemblies, and rebuilding your segmented platen assemblies. We also can repair component/computer boards at a fraction of the cost of new ones.
Orbital Head Assembly Repair/Rebuild
Our orbital heads are completely disassembled, inspected for worn components, reassembled back to factory specifications and balanced. We take our rebuilds one step further by bench testing each head for 4-8 hours after balancing prior to shipping them out. This ensures a smooth break-in period for our customers and eliminates future issues.
Sanding Head Assembly Repair/Rebuild
If your sanding head is in need of repair, send it to us or have us come out and remove it from your machine. Whether it’s a rubber contact drum that needs to be recovered or dressed and balanced, your bearings need to be replaced, your steel drum needs turning and balancing, or you have a segmented platen that needs to be rebuilt, we have the capabilities and knowledge to rebuild almost any wide belt sanding head, abrasive planer head, cutter heads with inserts or knives, and segmented platen heads.
Dressing Rubber Covered Contact Drums
Any rubber covered contact drum or pinch roll will show wear after time. When contact drums become damaged or worn, it may be necessary to have them reground and possibly rebalanced. If there is more than 1/8” damage or wear in the rubber, the rubber covered drum (contact drum) my need to be removed from the machine and recovered, ground and balanced. We recommend dressing your rubber covered contact drums at least once a year in a high production environment. Your rubber covered contact drums will go through heat cycles, causing the durometer of the rubber covering to change and eventually harden. This could create finishing issues on your product.
It is critical the rubber covered drum (contact drum) is ground concentric to the journals at the location where the bearings are located. High speed rubber covered drums (contact drums) should be rebalanced as close to operating RPM as possible. Dynamic balancing is recommended.
In most cases, rubber covered contact drums can be "kiss" ground while being left in the machine. If your rubber covered drum (contact drum) is producing a slight machine chatter, this may be the best method of eliminating any effects of drum and/or bearing run out. It is extremely important to ensure the rubber covered drum (contact drum) be level to the conveyor belt and/or conveyor bed plate so as to not grind a taper into the drum face which will cause abrasive belt tracking issues such as folding or creasing. Sanders Unlimited has designed a device to dress/kiss grind your rubber covered contact drum without removing it from your machine saving you labor costs. Contact us today to schedule a service call and have your drums dressed/kiss ground.
