Apex Metalworking EZ Sander
Apex Metalworking EZ Sander with 37" Single Drum, 6" Contact Drum, Dual Spring loaded Pinch Rolls and Electronic Abrasive Belt Tracking.
Apex 37″ EZ Sander uses heavy duty grease type bearings and locally” off the shelf“ access.
36″ wide Part Capacity
The EZ Sander is built to process parts up to 36” wide with the ability to hold very tight tolerance(+/-.003) side to side when set up properly. Parts that are longer in length may need to be supported at infeed and outfeed when being processed.
6” Diameter Cam Adjustable Contact Drum Sanding Head with Dial Indicator
The sanding head is a 6” cam adjustable contact drum with a dial indicator to adjust your drum when running thicker or thinner abrasive belts. This allows the operator to easily raise or lower the drum to adjust for varying abrasive belt thickness to keep proper hold down pressure on part being processed. When changing from one grit abrasive belt to another, this will help to ensure the contact drum position is positioned for the correct sanding pressure as well as having the correct pinch roll pressure without having to adjust each of the four pinch rolls which allows for very fast set up of machine with accuracy on contact drum position down to .001” on dial indicator readout.
Variable Speed Conveyor at 5-25 fpm
The conveyor belt speed is set to run at 5-25 fpm and is controlled at the main control panel by simply turning the dial to your desired speed within the 5-25 fpm range.
0-5″ conveyor bed opening with Motorized Lift
The conveyor table/bed opening has a 0” to 5” opening allowing the operator to sand some parts as thick as 5” and have the ability to sand very thin parts as well.
Heavy Duty Casters for Portability
The Wood EZ Sander comes standard with a set of heavy duty casters to allow the operator to move the sander to the desired place for operation when needed or roll out of the way when not being used.
Electronic Abrasive Belt Tracking System
The EZ Sander is equipped with a state of the art electronic tracking system for the abrasive belt. With an electronic beam of light and a pneumatic cylinder working together in an enclosed system the abrasive belt is tracked automatically to allow you to prevent possible streaking caused by uneven mineral wear on the abrasive belt.
Abrasive Belt loading door safety interlock
The EZ Sander has been built with several safety features with one being the interlock on the abrasive belt loading door which prevents the operator from continuing to run the abrasive belt motor when the abrasive belt loading door is open while it is running. If the door is opened while the machine is running the machine automatically shuts down the machine and the disc brake on the main motor is engaged to stop the belt in a few seconds.
Motorized Lift with Digital Thickness Readout for conveyor bed settings
The EZ Sander has motorized lift thickness opening to open or close the thickness opening simple by turning a toggle switch. A digital readout on the control panel is used to make setting the height of the conveyor bed to the desired thickness. The digital readout shows the bed opening down to the .001” or .01mm dependent on whether you are using metric or standard for the readout.
Centrally located control panel with motor load meter and hour meter
Centrally located control panel lets the operator easily reach and view the necessary items from the front of the machine while loading parts at the infeed area of the machine.
Over-Thick Shut-off system on infeed
Over-thick safety door at located above the infeed area of the machine is designed to help prevent the feeding of over-thick or double stacked parts from being feed into the machine which will help keep the machine and operator from being harmed or injured. If a part that is too thick is fed into the machine by mistake should engage the door safety switch at the infeed of the machine which is designed to shut down the machine which will help prevent any harm or damage to the operator and or the machine.
Air Caliper Disc Brake
Heavy duty air caliper disc braking system for stopping sanding head within 4 to 5 seconds when activated by the machine’s safety interlock system.
Safety Micro Switches to prevent mis-tracked belts
Safety Micro Switches are positioned on both inboard and outboard sides of the abrasive belt to keep the belt from tracking too far. These limit switches have ceramic sleeves on them to help prevent any spark if the abrasive belt should track too far and engage these micro limit switches. If the switch is activated by the abrasive belt mis-tracking, the heavy duty caliper brake is activated and the power is shut down which brings the belt to a stop within a few seconds.
