Using and finding the right concrete floor grinder is the difference between turning projects around faster, making better profits, getting flatter floors compared to a slower grind, lighter machine which can struggle on some projects, and taking longer to turn your projects around.

Taking into consideration the need for three phase 400V power onsite, the advantages of three phase power and production far out way the single phase every day of the week.

Schwamborn three phase concrete floor grinders and the Remote controlled run off electric 400V / three phase power to make it happen.


Without the right diamond grinding shoes, segments or wedge's on the bottom of your concrete girnding machine you can be spending extra time on the job. Diamonds including PCD'sSpeed ShoesSuper RhinosStripper PCD's and Softer bonds are just a few ways to tear off waterproofing membranes, concrete epoxy coatings, paints, adhesives, spray or torch on products quicker. 

Products that are applied from a wet product will often heat up and become reactivated during the grind. Because of this tougher diamonds such as the above tend to carve into the product faster, meaning they will rip, grind and slice the product off opposed to heavy grinding with a standard diamond (16 grit, 20 grit, 3040 grit etc) which in some applications may heat the product up, reactiviating it and cause it to smear around the diamond preventing it's cutting life. 

When the product heats up, and covers the diamond grit/segment the cutting speed is greatly reduced eventually causing the diamond to be deemed useless on that particular application. 

We've seen this many times where a flooring contractor has been setup with a concrete floor grinding machine and diamonds for a general application when they need a harsher, more aggressive diamond segment to carve, rip or grind the product (ie, concrete coating) off faster and more effectively. 

The analagy is used 'cuts like a knife to butter' for these PCD's diamond grinding segments.

Amoungst a few other options of diamond tooling PCD's offer effeicient removal and often clean the concrete in a single pass.
