Tire Grinding

Grind and Align

We offer a “REAL” grind and align service for tires and trunnions. During the alignment process included in our Grind and Align package, we set the trunnions back on elevation and on center lines, and check the pitch to make sure that there are no soft foots from the bearing housings to the trunnion base. We install shims as needed to obtain proper face to face contact which reduces bearing, shaft and thrust roller fatigue and failure.

Our grinders have been built with size in mind! Small that is, to accommodate small and congested areas that are typically hard to get to. We can also modify our units to grind virtually anywhere. In these photos you can see how we have inverted our machines to handle some
crusher rollers. It had been taking this customer almost a week to grind by hand because of the tight space that the rollers are in. Once we set up our machines, it took just over five hours to complete the grinding process.
