Heavy slag (also known as dross) is an issue usually associated with flame cutting or plasma cutting plate steel. A machine configured for slag grinding is capable of removing this difficult burr in a single pass! This refined slag removal process can save your operators significant time and boost their overall efficiency while simultaneously increasing the quality and consistency of your finished parts, substantially boosting your bottom line. However, if you want to fully capitalize on the benefits these systems offer, youll need to invest in a high-quality machine that aligns seamlessly with your current production requirements.

At Timesavers, we specialize in designing and manufacturing industry-leading sanding machinery for both wood and metal fabricators. Over the last 70 years, weve collaborated with metalworkers of every size and specialty to implement smart, cost-effective solutions for their specific applications. Our overarching goal is to provide the resources your team needs to meet and exceed its production goals, no matter how ambitious or demanding they are. We also understand that it can be tough to pin down which machine your shop should invest in to achieve maximum value with its slag removal operations. Thats why well be taking a few minutes today to help you find the optimal slag grinder for your metalwork production line. But before that, lets take a moment to review why these machines are the best choice for large-scale slag removal.

Slag grinders are durable machines that grind metal parts as theyre fed through, removing all heavy slag quickly and effectively. These machines use a series of grinding belts and brushes to effortlessly tear through even the heaviest dross accumulations. When an unfinished part is first fed through, its heavy burrs are knocked down by a high speed drum. From there, a highly flexible, diamond-profiled roller is activated, rounding off the edges of the parts. After this grinding process is complete, parts are passed over by high-density steel wire brush, removing any remaining sharp edges and leaving behind a beautifully finished product every time.

Every type of metal and part shape bears unique properties and limitations, meaning that a slag removal process that works flawlessly for one of your products could damage or destroy another. Thats why its essential to choose a slag grinder that can be configured to create a great finish for your specific applications. Thankfully, high-quality slag grinderslike the ones we produce at Timesaversinclude a number of unique, operator-friendly features that can be used to further optimize your slag removal operations. For example, the special machine execution weve implemented for our 2200 Series machines includes transport speed adjustments, precise material thickness settings, belt tracking regulators and grinding pressure adjustment, allowing you to tweak your slag removal system to fit your exact specifications. Moreover, these machines offer convenient transport extensions, making it even easier to incorporate them into your current production system. Pair these outstanding features with their simple belt changing features, and its no surprise why thousands of metal fabricators across the nation invest in Timesavers heavy slag removal solutions when they need to optimize their metalworking operations.

Above all else, the safety of your team members is at the forefront of every decision. After all, without proper safety systems in place, the process of slag grinding can be highly dangerous for operators. One lapse in concentration is all it takes for a worker to experience a severe injury if their hands get too close to the machine while feeding parts down the line. Fortunately, quality machines like ours are outfitted with a wealth of safety features to mitigate these threats. Timesaver slag grinder machines are equipped with many safety features, including: interlocked doors, emergency stop push buttons in all 4 corners, overthick sensing device, disc brakes on sanding heads, etc. All of this in addition to separating the operator from the actual grinding process, abrasives, sparks, dust, and reducing operator fatigue/repetitive motion injuries.
