What's New

Our Heavy Duty cylinder disassembly/assembly table and tooling designed for cylinders up to 24 to 30 inches in diameter. The table is designed with the top rail modified from 3/4" to 1-1/4" steel and is 26.5 ft. Long. A cylinder assist for disassembly and re assembly, a 24" heavy duty triple chain vise, a pressure boost system and 70K Nut Buster have been developed in conjunction with the heavy duty disassembly table.

MSD-P-15 | Centerless Polishing Machine

A sturdy 2” x 4” tubular frame (standard frame length is 15 ft.) consists of two sets of polyurethane rollers — the gear motor drives one set, and the other set is easily adjusted to accommodate shafts from 1” to 14” OD.

Machinery Service & Design, Inc., uses a “G & P 72” Abrasive belt polisher Model B372-3 as its polishing head. The head uses a 3” X 72” belt and is driven by a 3hp. 230/460 volt, 3 phase, 60 hz. Motor.

A 5 HP head with a 3” x 90” belt is available to increase the time between belt changes.

The polishing head is driven horizontally the length of the fixture by a vector A.C. drive. A rack and pinion drive system is used for smooth traversing of the carriage. The head is supported by four Teflon lined guides, which slide on aluminum support rails.

Electrical Package

The electrical package will allow automatic reversing of polishing head with time delays at the end of strokes. This feature can be used to remove chrome build-ups on re-plated shafts. The magnet stops can be easily placed to reverse the polishing head at the end of the rod being polished.

  • No need for centering or chucking rod in lathe. Faster setup time.
  • Clevis can be hung over end of fixture. Less setup required.
  • High micro-finish.
  • Can be used to check concentricity of shafts.
  • The belt polisher can be positioned for specialty processes,
    i.e. angle grinding and chamfers.
