The Pieco 1600 Surface Grinder is a powerful heavy-duty grinder designed for grinding flat the face of a mincer plate. The largest rotary grinder in its series, it is able to retract the wheel from centre, allowing the grinding of hubbed plates.
Grinding the face of a mincer plate flat is essential to maintaining a high quality cut whilst mincing. When a mincer is running, the knife revolves against the plate and wears it down, creating an uneven surface. This creates space between blade and plate and can result in smearing and a low-quality minced product.
If you have a large mincing operation with a high throughput of minced meat, a surface grinder is a great investment to reduce costs in the long-run, eliminating the need to outsource your sharpening.
