PLANETARY TECHNOLOGY FOR COUNTERTOP PRODUCTION
AURORA, CO - The Legend CT from Samich USA was engineered as a true planetary countertop production machine. The machine builds on the concept of using planetary technology, as opposed to single-head technology, for grinding and polishing stone in a floor restoration and maintenance setting.
According to the company, most single-head machines run at 155 to 250 RPM, but when that same machine is fitted with a planetary gear box, the RPM at the diamond can be increased 10 times. “If that technology can make a floor work better, then why can’t it make working on countertops better too?” said Josh Huseby, President and CEO of Samich USA.”
Huseby explained that the Legend CT planetary machine has an optimal level of reliability because it was not built by starting with a traditional hand tool. “Rather than trying to make a hand tool do something it was not meant to do, we took the technology in our larger floor machines and scaled it down for our new Legend CT,” he said.
The machine was also engineered for a maximum level of balance. “The motor for the three 5½-inch heads is mounted centrally, rather than off to the side of the gear box,” said Huseby. “This allows the machine to maintain perfect balance.”
Samich has been manufacturing high-quality stone and concrete grinding, polishing and preparation equipment and accessories for nearly 30 years, and Samich USA is an extension of that tradition. For more information, visit www.samich-usa.com.
