Planotec Series Surface Grinder

Machine Information

The Planotec, excels due to the ease of setting and operation in manual and automatic grinding cycles. This machine distinguishes itself by exceptional quality standards and workmanship “Made by SUPERTECH”, providing accuracy, precision and reliability. With simplified conversational programming, it helps to increase productivity and is suitable for general tool room or simple production environments.


High rigidity wheel spindle rotates in grease packed precision class 7 angular contact ball bearings. The cartridge spindle is interchangeable for easy maintenance and replacement. Spindle, couplings and class V3 7 ½ spindle motor are precisely balanced for low vibration and powerful output to achieve grinding accuracy and superb finishes.

Vertical movement (Y axis)

Massive one piece cast column is heavily ribbed for rigidity. Wheelhead travels on the high precision linear slideways by precision ballscrew and AC servomotor drive from the column top, thus ensures high accurate downfeed. Manual control of the Y axis by conveniently situated MPG.

Cross movement (Z axis)

High grade meehanite cast iron is used for bed, saddle and major units. All castings are heat tempered and stress relieved during manufacturing process to assure stability of the machine structure and resist deflection under load. Saddle operates on hydrostatic, precisely hand scraped, and turcite coated double vee sideways by precision ballscrew.

Table movement (X axis)

Hydraulically powered table traverse operating on hydrostatic, precisely hand scraped, and turcite coated double vee slideways, which maintains a perfect fit for the lift of your grinder. This is important in shoulder and slot grinding. The proximity switches operates reverse dogs are properly covered for operator’s safety and easily set suitable table stroke to obtain the highest grinding efficiency. Table speed is infinitely variable.

Hydraulic power pack

Hydraulic power pack with cooling fan unit ensures accuracy and the smoothes movement of the table, and avoids possible deflection from heat.
