Power tools manufacturer Fein has launched a hand-held belt grinder for flexible on-site working that is three times faster than comparable angle grinders and better suited to heavy-duty metalworking applications.
The GHB 15-50 is a portable, single-phase belt grinding solution for a wide variety of heavy-duty, on-site metal work, including weld-seam removal, chamfering, deburring, profiling and rust removal.
The new grinder has a high stock removal rate with a constant drive of 8,500 rpm. Its on-site flexibility is maximised by its rotatable built on motor that can be turned through nearly 360 degrees and adjustable handle. It also has the added benefit of weighing just 5.6kg and having a 4m long industrial cable giving a further boost to its portability. T
The abrasive belts for the GHB 15-50 have a longer life expectancy than the equivalent discs on angle grinders and provide a much larger grinding area – 50mm by 1,000mm. In addition, it has a tool-free belt change operation for speed and efficiency.
Available from specialist retailers, GHB 15-50 comes with a grain size 36 Grit abrasive belt and costs around £599.95 for the standard version and £649.95 for the stainless steel version (excluding VAT).
