Uses of a belt sander

Belt sanders are used for the finishing of wood, plastic and metal. They are used for the stripping of coatings, evening out of uneven surfaces, removing residue and corrosive areas and smoothing out surfaces. The quality level of the surface depends on the grain of the sanding belt. Belt sanders are not suitable for sanding precise surfaces, but are mainly used as the pre-treatment of surfaces. Belt sanders are available as hand held tools, sanding tables and automatic machines.

Composition and working with a belt sander

A belt sander contains a closed, wide belt that has abrasive grit on one side and is clamped in between two rollers. The front roller is most commonly operated electrically. The back roller is responsible for the appropriate positioning of the sanding belt. After the electric motor is switched on, the sanding belt turns between the two rollers at a high speed and thereby it strips off the surface a workpiece, which is being pressed against it. A common mistake is that the belt is not built in with the right tension. If the tension is too low, the belt can slip and cause insufficient results. If the tension is too tight, there is more likely to be wear and tear on the belt and the machine, particularly the bearings and shafts of the driving unit. Additionally, a belt whose tension is too high is hazardous.

If the belt rips, it can uncontrollably hit someone in the close vicinity of the machine. There are belt sanders, where the belt always runs in one direction, and others where it can run in both directions. In order to correctly prepare a belt sander, one is required to have some experience and training. Belt sanders are uncomplicated stations that can be operated by trained assistants who are aware of the safety regulations. Particularly powerful belt sanders can be manually or automatically loaded and usually undertake the sanding process in an encased area. These machines are particularly easy to operate, but require qualified staff for maintenance of the machine.

Tips for working with a belt sander

Working with a belt sander can be problematic due to the noise levels and dust, which are health hazards. A protective breathing mask is important when working with a belt sander. Metal dust can cause damages to the electronics of other machines. Therefore, an extraction unit for the grinding dust is a useful to have in the vicinity of the belt sander.
