SOLID CONSTRUCTION

The extremely solid base of the Model 12-BC grinder results from use of a single 12" x 12" square steel tube for the main column . Grinding heads are adjusted by Acme threaded screws through Ampco bronze nuts. Motor slides are fabricated from stress-proof shafting operating through Frelon coated linear bushings. These details provide head to head linear alignment through the total adjustment travel.

FLEXIBILITY

Our Model 12-BC grinder uses the same diameter grinding plate as the Model 18-2V Moyer grinder. This design puts the spring path behind the center. With full stones, a 6" long spring can be ground.

The Model 12-BC can be effectively used as a steady production machine or as an efficient short run grinder. The Moyer Automation System is available for this machine.

2 - DRESSER DESIGN

Moyer's 2 dresser design dresses both top and bottom stones without removing the carrier plate or swinging the front of the machine out of the way. A pair of dresser arms swing from an independent shaft attached to the machine's main column. This design eliminates dresser shake and dresser arm deflection.

GUARDING

The grinding wheels are guarded on all sides for operator safety. A 36 sq. in. dust collector tube located at the rear of the grinding wheels provides maximum cleanliness and does not interfere with operation.
