The Gibbs Sandtech BS 750 is a twin-spindle Bobbin sander. The twin shafts allow a variety of sanding heads to be accepted.
This machine offers the best of both worlds, superb sanding from the soft form head and the ability to de-nib with the other head.
The finest finish sanding with great blending ability. Ideal for chair component manufacturers. Long abrasive belts are used to keep the abrasive cool as it sands.
Two heads are better than one
Polyco, one of the UK's leading suppliers of window boards, needed a special purpose sander with two heads for sanding a "bull nose" profile continuously at high speed. We manufactured and supplied a special twin head machine which has two independent heads, which means that Polyco can change an abrasive belt while they continue to sand on the uninterruptible production line.
Drum roll please
Percussion Drum manufacturer "Andante Ltd" came to us needing a special machine. The brief was to sand the longitudinal veneer grain on the surface of the drum.
We demonstrated how we intended to achieve the customer's finish with a simple mock-up and then designed and manufactured the end result.
From planks to floor boards
Quickwood UK, run by the Gibbs group, has recently supplied some interesting machines.
The Plank Company took delivery of a modified Quickwood QL sander for sanding floor boards as they come out of the high speed moulder. As the boards are machined upside down we obviously had to supply an upside down machine. The majority of the sanding is on the bottom and a small amount on the top, giving a superior finish.
The S.T. Wheels sand and seal MDF edges and are comprised of a combination of resins impregnated with abrasive of various grits.
A firm sanding head suitable for general sanding. Replacement abrasives can be simply clipped in place making it economical to use.
6 - 8 and 10 - Block heads for profile edge sanding.
QN QD is discs of abrasive fingers interspaced with soft abrasive nylon brushes.
The QW4 are pneumatic sanding rollers, which are versatile sanding tools that can be used for wood, metal, plastic, rubber and leather.
Suitable for opening the grain on oak for liming and stiffer steel can be used for distressing timber.
Quick Flex is suitable for wood sanding, achieving a fine finish before applying a base coat as well as the de-nibbing of flat and contoured items.
