A vertical grinder is perfect for grinding and dicing coffee beans in the ground. As with any type of grinder, there are pros and cons to using one type machine over another. Vertical grinders are best suited for rough jobs like chopping, grinding, or even sawing hard materials. They are also a great choice for those with limited working space or those that want to save time on the job at hand.
The main benefit of the vertical grinder is the wide range of grinding applications it is capable of producing. Many types are designed specifically for various coffee bean sizes, resulting in very accurate grind results. Some grinders also feature self-cleaning wheels which automatically clean up after each use, reducing the need for manual cleaning or disposal. This reduces waste and increases the productivity and usefulness of these machines.
In addition to their versatility, some grinders also feature automatic shut-off power systems. This is a simple, one-touch button to start process that allows the machine to stop grinding immediately if desired. Some models come with two or four grinding wheels, increasing the amount of grinding that can take place in a given time frame. Grinding wheels come in a variety of sizes and grinding speeds. The larger the wheel size, the more surface area can be accomplished in a fraction of the time and the more powerful the motor.
The benefits of the 56v series vertical grinder are virtually limitless when it comes to grinding applications. Each model is designed to quickly grind small quantities of beans through a custom switch or control switch. Built-in power packs allow the machine to operate completely off of an empty battery, eliminating the need for costly electrical outlets. In addition to its ability to work entirely off of a battery, all models are designed with user-friendly operation and variable speed controls.
One of the best benefits of the vertical grinder is its ability to obtain greater accuracy than other types of grinders. This is due to the adjustable angle setting of the vertically mounted grinder blades. When the blade is at an angle that is less than 45 degrees, more accurate results can be obtained. For example, less degree accuracy can be obtained from a blade that is set at an angle of sixty degrees than from a blade that is set at an angle of thirty degrees. This greater degree of accuracy makes the vertical grinder perfect for precision milling applications where precise concentric circles must be produced in various sizes and shapes.
The vertical grinder is also a very economical machine to use. The mechanism that provides the most efficient work flow is the sliding action that allows the operator to move the workpiece up and down the vertical shaft of the machine. There is very little physical effort required by the operator and this results in both less workpiece wear and less overall waste. Furthermore, the blades tend to remain at an optimal angle which leads to even more efficiency. Since the operation of the vertical grinder is so efficient, it is very possible to cut back on material costs by using the machine instead of a more traditional milling machine.
