The Unilev has been designed to be a versatile sanding station for both large and small components. This cleverly designed machine includes:
- Edge sanding
- Long piece sanding (via a unique fence system)
- Tilting sanding belt
- Internal radius sanding.
The Unilev sanding machine can be used in a couple of ways.
Standard operation is via the sanding belt, with a capacity of 150mm height and just under a meter in length. In this setup the machine edgesands as a normal linisher or edgesander.
For sanding longer workpieces, the in/out feed system can be introduced. This allows the operator to feed long workpieces (no maximum length) past the sanding face – working similar to a spindle moulder. You’ll get uniform sanding along any length workpiece
The large cast iron worktable gives solid support of your workpiece. Combine this with the extendable support, with rollers, and large panels can also be edgesanded.
Sanding complex angles
Complex components with angles can be sanded in a number of ways.
- Head tilting: the complete sanding belt tilts away from the operator. There is a large scale to read the angle from, adjustment is via a handwheel at the front of the machine.
- Angle fence: we supply the unilev standard with an adjustable reference fence. This large fence mounts onto a cast mitre gauge, allowing you to reference your workpeice off the fence. You can then introduce the components to the sanding face at an exact angle.
Sanding internal curves
The cylinder at the end of the machine is 100mm diameter and has been fitted with a cast table which is height adjustable. This allows you to sand internal radiuses and curves.
Extraction ports at both ends of the machine give great dust removal, keeping your environment as clean as possible. The extraction hose is centralised into 1 x 120mm diameter port for connection to your extractor.
