The SidePro’s horizontal configuration and dual saw advance system allows both right and left hand saws (or double cut saws) to be accurately side ground in about the same area required for a stretcher roll bench. Note that the digital readouts are conveniently located next to the grinding wheel positioning controls.

Armstrong introduces the SidePro dual side grinder, the latest in our line of side grinders for both Cobalt Chromium Alloy tipped and swaged tooth band saws

The SidePro’s exclusive horizontal configuration fits in the same area as a stretcher roll bench. Right and left hand and double cut saws can be side ground in about half the area required by conventional side grinders.


Two saw advance systems and grinding wheels that rotate in both directions allow left and right hand or double cut saws to be accurately side ground on the same machine. The operator can change the machine from right hand to left hand operation with a flip of the switch and a quick move of the grinding head. There are no saw stands or back feed units to buy.


The SidePro consistently holds accuracy to +/- .001" (.025 mm). With a wide range of radial and tangential angles and side clearances as small as .016" (.41 mm), the SidePro can be set for nearly every side grinding requirement. A non-toxic vegetable oil lube is automatically applied to each tooth prior to grinding.


The control panel puts all the controls at the operator's fingertips.  The Digital Readout (DRO) displays the amount of material being removed from each side of the tooth for fast set-up and adjustment.


The 6" diameter CBN wheels are powered by a 2 h.p. electric motor for heavy stock removal, even when grinding at 6 teeth per minute. An air-over-oil system assures smooth action day after day, year after year.
