Concrete floor preparation, grinding, glue removal, and high spot rectificaiton is not always a walk in the park when you dont understand your diamond tooling and how it works.

Schwamborn has been developing concrete floor girnding and polishing machines for over 80 years and working iwth them and concrete floor prep and polishing contractors here in Australia, All Prpearaiotn Equipment has developed a wide range of diamond tooling for each and every floor prep or removal application. 

’Mate, that conversion plate you sent me is a weapon I’ve just ground 400m2 of 30 year old concrete and still got more life on my diamonds. We’re using the 16 grit diamonds and previously were getting only about 250m2 out of a 10’’ plate on our Meteor. Thanks for telling us about your plates,’’ says Aaron. We love feedback! And got so excited about this news from a customer in Sydney. After running the Meteor 250 Floor Grinder for just over a year, they were looking for faster, more economical and more efficient ways to grind. Looking for ways to grind subfloors faster, and remove those notoriously tough glues and adheisves found on old concrete floors under vinyls and carpets, and a faster way to grind high MPA concrete, the only way was to convert to a Knock on Shoe 'Conversion plate. It's easy to see why many contractors are setting up with diamond shoe conversion plates, to help their grinder, grind faster.

Knock on shoe Conversion plates,

  • Ensure you get more life out of the diamonds
