Specifically designed for ease of maintenance and operation, Mid-West Machine™ grinders feature outstanding visibility of the work area from the environmentally controlled operator’s cab. The control joysticks for the operation of the grinder head and material handling car are located in the armrests of the completely cushioned, industrial quality, fully adjustable seat. The touch screen, color HMI and data terminal displays, monitors and controls all operating sequences. The HMI also provides information and diagnostics for the electrical and hydraulic systems. An additional option includes the ability to transmit production reports to other locations as determined by the customer.
The electrical panels and hydraulic system components are arranged for easy functional checks with all components readily accessible for maintenance personnel.
These features, combined with a complete line of manipulators, slab turners, rotators, conveyors and other material handling equipment make Mid-West Machine™ equipment the most versatile metal conditioning systems available today.
