  • Stationary Grinders
    Gantry for grinder travel across material * 45° or 90° wheel orientation * 300HP * Live Shaft Spindle * Close proximity environmentally controlled cab * Complete electrical & hydraulics...

  • Specifically designed for ease of maintenance and operation, Mid-West Machine™ grinders feature outstanding visibility of the work area from the environmentally controlled operator’s cab. The control joysticks for the operation of the grinder head and material handling car are located in the armrests of the completely cushioned, industrial quality, fully adjustable seat. The touch screen, color HMI and data terminal displays, monitors and controls all operating sequences. The HMI also provides information and diagnostics for the electrical and hydraulic systems. An additional option includes the ability to transmit production reports to other locations as determined by the customer. The electrical panels and hydraulic system components are arranged for easy functional checks with all components readily accessible for maintenance personnel.

    These features, combined with a complete line of manipulators, slab turners, rotators, conveyors and other material handling equipment make Mid-West Machine™ equipment the most versatile metal conditioning systems available today.

    Featured as standard equipment on all Mid-West Machine™ grinders are: automatic motor load control, automatic index, safety drop-off control, environmentally controlled cabs, centralized lube systems, and industry standard 24 inch (610mm) and 25 inch (635mm) grinding wheels.

    This new high horsepower, heavy-duty model 3000 conditioning grinder is supported by an overhead carriage and includes a feature to allow the operator to swivel the grinder allowing grinding to take place at a position of 90 or 45 degrees from the long axis of the material being ground.

  • Billet & Slab Manipulators
    Square Billet Manipulator (pictured) is used for square material from 3 in (76mm) to 12 in (305mm) square....

  • This Mid-West Machine™ Square Billet Manipulator system consists of two (2) separate clamping modules constructed of 1-1/2 in (38mm) plate with wear strips in the area where the billets are clamped or manipulated. Each module has three (3) heavy-duty clamping/holding arms that are powered using hydraulic cylinders. Material from 3 in (76mm) to 12 in (305mm) square can be manipulated and securely clamped for condition grinding on each side and for corner grinding. Each module shall have a central plumbing point to be piped in the field.

  • Round/Ingot/Billet Rotators
    Rounds Rotator (pictured) is designed to handle rounds up to 45 in (1,143mm) diameter, in lengths to 250 in (6,350mm) and weights up to 50,000 lbs (22,650 kgs)....

  • The Mid-West Machine™ Rounds Rotator is designed to handle rounds up to 45 in (1,143mm) diameter, in lengths to 250 in (6,350mm) and weights up to 50,000 lbs (22,650 kgs).

    The Mid-West Machine rounds rotator is designed to rotate round, straight product during grinding for “Spiral Grinding” or hold it stationary for longitudinal or spot grinding.

    The rotator consists of a heavy welded steel frame assembly equipped with two (2) line shafts mounted in heavy duty pillow blocks. These are split style bearings for ease of maintenance. Each shaft is fitted with hardened, split steel wheels that are keyed and fastened to the shaft.

    The two (2) rotator shafts are connected through a chain drive at the ends to provide rotational power to all of the rotator wheels. The wheels are spaced approximately 18 in (457mm) apart to provide support for the product being ground.

  • Round/Square Billet Load/Unload Tables
    The Mid-West Machine™ Load/Unload Tables are designed to handle rounds or square billets....

  • The Mid-West Machine™ Load/Unload Tables are designed to handle rounds or square billets. This equipment is available to alleviate the wait for cranes or forklifts to directly load/unload the car (typically a major cause of lost time). This equipment automatically moves material pieces from the beam load position to the car load position on the walking beam.

    The equipment will index additional pieces until the load table is full. When the operator is ready for a new piece to grind the car is moved to the car load position and the walking beam places the material on the car.

    As long as there is at least one piece on the load table, the accumulating walking beam will move it forward so there will not be a delay when the grinder operator is ready for the next piece. The unloading accumulating walking beam works in reverse, making sure there is always a space for auto unloading of the car.
