Type
   Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Belt Sander - Contact Wheel       Belt grinders and sanders consist of a driven contact wheel and a tensioning idler wheel or pulley. Abrasive belts are mounted on both the contact wheel and the idler wheel. Workpieces are ground or sanded against the abrasive belt. Contact wheels vary according to the degree of aggressiveness or finishing required. Smooth, soft, rubber-faced contact wheels are the least aggressive. Serrated, hard, rubber-faced wheels are more aggressive. Smooth metal or steel-faced wheels are the most aggressive. 
   Belt Sander - Edge / Platen       Edge sanders and platen grinders consist of a driven contact wheel, a tensioning wheel or pulley, and an intermediate platen behind an abrasive belt. Abrasive belts are mounted on both the contact wheel and the tensioning idler. Workpieces are ground or sanded against the abrasive belt, which is backed by the platen. Platen types vary by operation and are constructed of smooth, low-friction materials that reduce heating and limit thermally-induced belt damage. Flat platens are used to remove irregularities from workpieces and to provide a smooth, flat surface. Edge sanders or sidestroke sanders are usually stationary and feature a long, flat platen behind a horizontal belt-sanding surface. 
   Buffer       Buffers and buffing machines are used to buff or improve a surface's brightness or finish. Buffers drive either a non-woven abrasive pad or a buffing pad that is loaded with buffing or polishing compounds. Many buffers use a combination of rotary and orbital or oscillatory actions. 
   Disc Sander       Disc sanders are abrasive-disc grinders or grinding-wheel face grinders. Vertical shaft grinder or sander is another term used to describe disc grinders or sanders. 
   Drum / Sleeve       Drum sanders and sleeve sanders are designed to drive an expanding drum that accepts abrasive sleeves. 
   Inner Diameter (ID) / Internal       Devices are designed to accept smaller diameter wheels, abrasive products or deburring tools for grinding or finishing the surface on the inner diameter (ID) or internal recesses of a part. 
   Orbital / Planetary       Devices use an orbital or planetary motion during finishing or grinding. 
   Polisher        Polishers, polishing lathes, and polishing machines are specialized machines that produce bright, smooth or fine surface finishes. Polishing machines use loose abrasives, lapping compounds or fixed fine-grit abrasive products such as abrasive films or discs. Polishing lathes include two tapered shafts that accept a variety of tool holding chucks. 
   Sander       Sanders and sanding machines include specialized holding, driving, or coated abrasive products such as abrasive belts, abrasive discs, and sandpaper or non-woven abrasives. Sanders and sanding machines include belt sanders, disc sanders, orbital sanders, bench grinders, backstand grinders, wide belt sanding machines, vibratory or jitterbug sanders, and file belt sanders. 
   Surface / Conveyor Sander       Surface grinding machines are used to grind flat and/or square surfaces. Typically, the workpiece is mounted on a table underneath the grinding wheel or belt. The table sweeps back and forth in a reciprocating motion with each pass. The table is indexed upwards to provide the desired depth of cut after each pass. 
   Stroke / Pad (Contours / Moulding)        Stroke or pad sanders or machines are designed for profile, contour, or moulding sanding and finishing applications. A platen with the inverse shape of the moulding to be finished is used behind the belt.  The belt or specialty abrasive product used must be flexible enough conforms to the pattern of the wood molding or metal contour to be finished. 
   Vibratory / Oscillatory       Devices use a vibratory or oscillatory motion during finishing. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialty or proprietary types of devices such as scarifiers, power files, scrapers, extrusion or flow honing, thermal deburring or stripping, and wafer thinning or backgrinding equipment.

Features
   Automation:       
   Your choices are...         
   None / Manual       Devices require manual loading and then manual setup and operation. Users must change abrasive products and adjust machine parameters such as speed, applied load, and coolant/lubricant flow. The user interface may include push buttons, foot switches, pendants, a touchscreen, or a graphical user interface (GUI). 
   Automatic / Indexing       Devices load parts automatically and can be operated without user intervention. Machines change or adjust abrasive product, workpiece and other parameters such as speed, applied load or coolant/lubricant flow rate in a pre-programmed manner.  They also index the cut depth or position to achieve the required material removal, geometry and/or surface finish. 
   CNC       Devices include automated computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools. These can be as simple as point-to-point linear controls or able to perform highly complex algorithms that involve multiple axes of control.
