SKU: MF-KRAKEN-BG-01 Category: Tags: , ,


We have developed a 2X72 Belt grinder kit (weld together) we are calling the KRAKEN.
It is designed to work with a 2HP 56C faced motor and a VFD (not included), we used a Leeson 2hp 3ph motor and a KBAC-27D VFD.
All the pivots have Oilite bronze bushings and shoulder bolts for ease of use and servicing.
We have implemented a ratchet and pawl tensioning system and a sort of unique tracking system that pivots the motor and drive wheel.
Everything is designed like we designed our fixture tables that we sell using Tab & Slot assembly methodology for accurate, easy layout and assembly. All the steel is .250” & .375” A36 HRPO and are all precision laser cut.
It does have two tooling arm slots so you can use a platen and tooling rest in place at the same time. The tooling arm slots are also protected to reduce or eliminate galling done by the tooling handle used to clamp the tooling arm in place.
The grinder also rotates from vertical to horizontal use with a positive lock in both positions.

This will come as a weld together kit, you will receive all the precision laser cut tab & slot designed metal parts, 5″ drive wheel and 3″ tension wheel and all the hardware, bolts, shoulder bolts, bushings, shims, washers, nuts etc. to assemble.
To complete the build of the KRAKEN Grinder, You will need to do some welding,  threading of a few holes, and have basic hand tools and hex wrenches to complete the build, but it goes together very nicely.
You would need to provide a 56C style motor and a VFD.

ALSO:  This kit does not include the tooling arm and platen assembly or a tool rest, the platen is available here, and the tool rest can be purchased else ware until we have designed one and make it available.

NOTE: The price on this kit will fluctuate based on steel pricing. (we reserve the right to update the price based on current steel pricing)

    Kit is very well made and straight forward as far as assembly. Anyone with basic fab and welding skills can easily build this sander. I did send a message to the company with a couple of questions and response was very quick and helpful.
