General Equipment Company Introduces Magnetach Line of Surface Preparation Accessories

Magnetach by General Equipment for Surface Preparation
Magnetech by General Equipment

General Equipment Company is rolling out its Magnetach Tooling System. Magnetech by General Equipment is designed for use on single- and dual-head concrete grinding equipment with either left- or right-hand rotation. The new tooling system features convenient magnetic mounting. It is also compatible with surface grinders from General Equipment Company, as well as competitive products using Lavina/EDCO mounting configurations. The Magnetach line includes the M-Series Diam-A-Tach diamond segment grinding system, PCD and Scrape-R-Tach floor coatings removal systems.

The M-Series

The M-Series Diam-A-Tach diamond segment grinding system offers a solution for a wide variety of surface preparation applications. This includes green concrete, fully cured concrete, high tensile epoxies and many thin-film coatings. Matrix bonds are available for both soft/medium and hard concrete formulations with a grit range of 18 to 100. The double segment design of the Diam-A-Tach offers an ideal combination of aggressiveness and service life.

The M-Series PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) floor coatings removal system has a diamond grit that under high pressure fuses together, along with a catalytic metal. It is for removing thin-to-medium glues, mastics, covering materials and cement levelers from concrete surfaces. Sacrificial segments are provided for the PCD inserts to aggressively remove materials, while acting as stabilizers and depth guides to minimize damage to the cap surface.

The M-Series Scrape-R-Tach floor coatings removal system efficiently removes a variety of urethanes, epoxies, paints and many other materials from concrete surfaces. It features eight- sided tungsten carbide inserts, helping make it the most cost-effective solution for coatings removal. The easy-to-use Scrape-R-Tach system also uses Lord type elastomeric mounts to follow minor variances in floor contours better than competitive systems allow, while substantially minimizing surface cap damage.
