Mid-West Machine™ 6840T Traveling Grinder is designed to work effectively in rugged, dirty environments. This machine is designed for maximum up time with the highest quality components and innovative designs that are assembled and arranged for easy service. This machine’s primary purpose is for conditioning titanium round-cornered squares. The system includes a basic traveling grinder, complete with electricals and hydraulics.

This NEW machine has a vertical reach of 68 inches (1727 mm) and a horizontal reach of 40 inches (1016mm). Working with a current owner of Mid-West Machine™ Traveling Grinders, Vulcan was tasked with providing a Traveling Grinder Solution to condition slabs up to 66 inches wide. Vulcan met the challenge of designing a new machine that handles a larger work envelope while maintaining the long lasting, reliable equipment that Mid-West Machine™ users expect. The customers needed a solution that could meet the new production requirements they obtained as well as process wider material. In order to offer a machine that was comparable to the grinders they have been using for many years, our team created an innovative design similar to the dependable 6040T. Thus, the 6840T was created.

While it is based on a machine that has been built for years, the Mid-West Machine™ 6840T Traveling Grinder also incorporates several updates to further improve safety, commonality of parts with other models, ease of operation, to provide greater operator comfort, increase productivity, and to lower maintenance costs. Additionally, the new operator cab is much quieter than previous models by integrating thicker insulation. The cab also contains updated intuitive controls.
