RRG2 - the original Rubber Roll Grinder

The original Rubber Roll Grinder was designed and developed specifically to meet the day-to-day requirements of rubber roll manufacturers supplying industry sectors such as paper making, float glass, printing, strip steel and aluminium production.
This unique, innovative and modular machine has now been further improved by the design engineers of the world renowned Dean Smith & Grace ( a MTTG Company ) to make it even more productive, flexible and operator friendly.

The capabilities of the new RRG2 travelling wheelhead grinder include plain and taper grinding, positive and negative camber profiles, end reliefs and all types of grooving - including radial, linear, diamond and chevron patterns and spreader roll profiles.
All the RRG2 machines are manufactured commissioned and tested in our Technology & Production facilities in Keighley and Halifax, England and continue to be exported throughout the world.

The Dean, Smith & Grace RRG2 is still available in both electronic and full CNC versions.

The complete range of RRG2 machines are built to meet a customer's specific requirements and Dean, Smith & Grace and MTTG engineers are always available to discuss and advise on specifications and applications.

Special Features -

  • The modular construction offers options for programmable A and B axes, with grooving, routing or linishing heads, 'manual swivel in' platen with rotary adjustment and detachable routing, grooving or linishing heads.
  • Fully programmable grooving head with full suite of easy-to-use on screen prompt grooving cycles (no G code programming necessary).
  • Our range of attachments provide a full suite of solutions for radial, helical, annular and linear grooving requirements.
