Chicago Pneumatic is introducing its new range of industrial vertical grinders, the CP3330 and CP3340 series, to foundry workers, metal fabricators and MROs worldwide. These industrial tools set a new high standard in terms of productivity and operator safety.
“ We are excited to make the grinders available globally so metalworking professionals worldwide can benefit from this best-in-class tool which offers the highest levels of quality, robustness, durability and ergonomics they have come to expect from Chicago Pneumatic ”
The competitive analysis carried out by the company indicates that users can remove material up to twice as fast using the CP3330 and 3340 series compared to similar tools on the market.
To maximize operator safety, these new generation industrial vertical grinders feature a unique overspeed shut-off device that reduces the risks of abrasive-related incidents caused by excessive air pressure (above 90 PSI / 6.3 bar) or governor malfunction due to debris in the air flow. In the unlikely event of a governor malfunction, this device stops the tool, preventing the abrasive from over-speeding and causing possible accidents.
Additionally to the overspeed shut-off device, their safety features include a high resistance protective wheel guard and a streamlined safety lever which is easy to use while wearing heavy gloves. All models in the CP3330 and CP3340 series exist in versions compliant with the CE ISO 11184-7 safety standard requirements as well as with the ANSI/CAGI B186-1 regulations, so users can rest assured that they are following regulations and best practices.
“ The CP3330 and CP3340 series set at new standard of safety for all, from foundry workers to metal fabricators and MROs. We believe that when it comes to industrial intensive applications, the productivity should never be achieved by compromising on operator safety. We encourage all HSE professionals to get familiar with the benefits of these grinders to deploy solutions that reduce abrasive induced incidents in their organizations. ”
The CP3330 and CP3340 series are ideal for various applications in metal-working, fabrication, foundries, casting plants, shipbuilding and oil and gas applications. Equipped with powerful governed motors, 3.7 hp for CP3330 and 4.5 hp for CP3340, the new industrial grinders can achieve a superior material removal rate and reduce completion times. Both versions are available in 2 different speeds: 6000RPM for 6” / 150mm cup wheels as well as 9” / 230mm and 8500 RPM for 7” / 180mm.
The typical applications covered by the CP3330 & CP3340 are contouring, deburring, cutting, weld cleaning of different materials such as cast iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, composite, magnesium and alloys.
