Former Rolls Royce Machinery

This plant is one of several machines acquired during Rolls Royce's reorganisation of their manufacturing facility at Inchinnan, UK.
Their worldwide reputation for quality is reflected in the machinery and maintenance of their manufacturing plant.
Many of these machines include features that are necessary for the manufacture and servicing of high quality engine components,
but can provide a benefit to any industry.


The model 2577 is equipped with 4 heavy-duty bearings per end offering for long life, double-ended spindle ends with independent variable speed high torque motors for flexibility.

The advantage gained by having a variable speed drive is that lower temperature stable materials can be processed such as plastics and acrylics and larger diameter mops used without scorching by reducing the actual surface speed of the wheels.


  • Motor sizes: 3hp 2.2KW dual motors.
  • Guarded

  • Operator spotlight
