Luxmaster KG 5000 are usually equipped with the more productive Breton heads Mod. SG/8 with 8 oscillating bricks, 510 mm in diameter and oil bath lubricated.
Upon the customer’s request, it is however possible to mount also the traditional Breton heads Mod. SG/6 with 6 oscillating bricks, 460 mm in diameter and oil bath lubricated.
The SG/8 heads derive /8 against 126 bricks for a polisher with 21 heads holding 6 bricks each):
- BETTER HONING thanks from the SG/6 head project, but have obviously been adapted to hold 8 bricks; they offer the following advantages;
- HIGHER OUTPUT thanks to the greater number of operating bricks (152 bricks for a Luxmaster KG 5000 with 19 heads Mod. SGto the larger head diameter (510 mm for the SG/8 heads against 460 mm for the 6-brick heads) and heavier weight (140 kg for the SG/8 heads against 105 kg for the 6-brick heads) that gives them more “stability” when operating;
- INSTALLED POWER REDUCTION 285 kW for a Luxmaster KG 5000 with 19 heads Mod. SG/8 against 315 kW for a polisher with 21 heads holding 6 bricks each).
All the Breton heads operate in an oil-bath system, thus minimizing the wear of mechanical parts. Each rotating head contains the required amount of oil.
