In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The ST-480 is a compact, single drum finishing sander that can also be easily converted to a brush sander. N.B. These sanders are used for fine finishing, they are not intended to be used as a thicknesser or with coarse abrasive for significant stock removal. In all instances, they are intended to be used with planed and thicknessed material.

Based around a cast iron base and frame, this is an extremely rigid and accurate drum sander. It is supplied as a bench mounted single drum machine that can handle boards and flat panels up to 960mm wide in two passes. The machine will sand work pieces as short as 60m to 90mm in length. Features include a variable speed conveyor controlled by a load sensing electronic system to prevent overheating of the sanding abrasive. A polyurethane conveyor belt is fitted, which has good grip but is non-marking. The sanding drum is balanced to prevent vibration and the abrasive loadings are spirally wound and secured by spring-loaded clips. A simple tool is provided to ease the abrasive changing task. The sanding drum is powered by an inverter driven induction motor. The variable drum speed provides a further control of the finish and also allows the use of the optional sanding brushes. The silicon carbide sanding brushes are supplied as a complete exchange kit. Available in a wide variety of grits, they are simple to fit in place of the sanding drum. Brush heads are very effective for profile sanding, denibbing and preparing mouldings for finishing. You can sand sealer coats and primers with the most uniform control of the finish. There is also a wire brush attachment, used to distress new wood to look weathered or create a grained look. This can also be used for brushing metals. With these options, this drum sander can be used for many tasks and will bring processes only previously available in larger machines to the small, growing workshop. A single 100mm dust extraction outlet is provided, efficient dust extraction is vital with these machines, please make sure your system is adequate. An optional, wheeled floor stand with a large storage cupboard is also available.
