Chicago Pneumatic introduces powerful industrial vertical grinders

Chicago Pneumatic is delighted to introduce its next-generation CP3330 and CP3340 industrial vertical grinders to foundry workers, metal fabricators and MROs worldwide.

The CP3330 and CP3340 series set a new high standard of operator safety and productivity, proven to remove material twice as fast as similar tools on the market. Following the successful launch of the grinders in North America in 2017, they now comply with the CE ISO 11184-7 safety standard requirements in addition to the ANSI/CAGI B186-1 regulations, so users can rest assured that they are following best practices.

“We are excited to make the grinders available globally so metalworking professionals worldwide can benefit from this best-in-class tool which offers the highest levels of quality, robustness, durability and ergonomics they have come to expect from Chicago Pneumatic,” says Lucas Bryk, Global Product Marketing Manager - Material Removal at Chicago Pneumatic. “There is an added benefit for global metalworking professionals since now they can purchase one range of tool that can be used in any site regardless of location, enabling them to save on purchasing and procurement costs.”

The CP3330 and CP3340 series are ideal for various applications in casting plants, shipbuilding and the oil and gas sector. Equipped with powerful governed motors, 3.7 hp (2800 W) for CP3330 and 4.5 hp (3400 W) for CP3340, the new industrial grinders can achieve a superior material removal rate and reduce completion times, delivering an instant return on investment.

To maximise operator safety, these innovative industrial vertical grinders feature a unique over-speed shut-off device that reduces the risks of abrasive-related incidents caused by air pressure fluctuations (above 90 PSI / 6.3 bar). In the unlikely event of overpressure, this device stops the tool, preventing the abrasive from over-speeding and causing possible accidents. Other safety features include a high resistance protective guard (1”/ 2.6mm thick) and a streamlined safety lever which is easy to use while wearing heavy gloves.

The CP3330 and CP3340 industrial vertical grinders are available with 7” (180mm) and 9” (230mm) abrasive grinding and cutting wheels and 6” (150mm) cup wheels; offering users the perfect grinder for each application. There are models ideally suited to contouring, deburring, cutting, finishing and weld cleaning of different materials such as cast iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminium, composite, magnesium and titanium. The 6” cup wheel model comes with a new safety guard which opens at 1800, providing users with greater abrasive accessibility and easy tool operation.
