The task was to reduce time. Historically, our customer like everyone else, would turn their stainless flat bar on the side and feed it through their flat bar machines. This was tedious to set up, it wasted even use of abrasive belts but most importantly it wasted large amounts of time.
We did a time and motion study, saw the issue and in conjunction with NS Maquinas sought a solution. A machine that would give the scope of feed that would cover the aggressive cutting stages and be flexible enough to increase through put on the finer end. It had to be fast and simple to set up, it had to be safe, strong and save time, lots of time. This machine would be the first of its kind, a new generation in edge grinding efficiency, the TR 120 3Z was born, a first for NS and its home would be Australia.
