Model 746 Profile Grinder

Accurate profile grinding from knife to knife requires a method of dressing the grinding wheel precisely as it wears. Foley-United’s Model 746 Profile Grinder solves this with a built-in, easy to use Micro Precision Dressing System (MPDS).

Exclusive features of the Micro Precision Dressing System (MPDS)

  • Using a dial indicator and a simple set-up block, the diamond is always set at the perfect radius to match the stylus pin.
  • Dresser locks at 45 and 90 degrees.
  • Sealed ball bearings at all pivot points assure fluid movement of the dresser.
  • Sealed ball bearings at all pivot points assure fluid movement of the dresser.


Precision Stylus Bar for automatic, consistent stylus settings:

  • A stylus bar lock allows for rapid major bar adjustments.
  • A backlash-free micro adjustment stylus bar assures the ability to set and maintain exact specifications.
  • Individual template clamps allow for versatile template positioning and secure, stable holding while grinding knives

Innovative yoke and arbor assembly for easier operation and greater accuracy:

  • Sealed bearing on the arbor accurately positions it in the yoke and gives extremely fluid rotation during grinding.
  • Locking clamps on the yoke guarantee the arbor won’t be lifted out of position and shields arbor bearings from contamination. The yoke assembly is split for the use of different length arbors.

In addition, specially balanced heavy-duty 2HP motor and balanced pulleys assure vibration-free grinding. The motor and pump switches, plus control valves for all flood coolant lines, are found in the easy-access raised control panel.
