At WOC 2015, Superabrasive Inc. unveiled the latest in the LAVINA line: LAVINA X floor grinding and polishing machines. The X series includes a full range of models, from the 7-inch and 13-inch edgers to the 32-inch Self-Propelled and 38-inch Remote-Controlled Propane model.
LAVINA machines are well-known as powerful, durable, versatile and very easy to use, but with efficiency at top priority, the most notable feature of the new X line is the minimized machine maintenance. All models 25-inch and larger feature a new window on the machine base which allows for quick access to the planetary drive system and easy belt maintenance.
Other machine features include improved handle lock technology, improved water delivery system with metered water flow and more. The self-propelled LAVINA 32M-X was the star at World of Concrete. It features a large 32-inch work path capacity, a powerful 25 horsepower motor and almost 1000 pounds of grinding pressure (including weights).
A second motor propels the machine forward, requiring very little physical effort from the operator and guaranteeing a steady floor processing speed. The new grinding and polishing machines are complemented by the LAVINA heavy duty industrial vacuums. Superabrasive has also added a new 27-inch propane burnisher to the LAVINA line, LB-27.
Superabrasive has more than 30 years of experience producing diamond tools. The company proudly serves customers in North America, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Its U.S. headquarters is located in Hoschton, Georgia. The location includes warehouse and office space. Also, It houses manufacturing space for ShinePro and SupraShine maintenance pads.
While Superabrasive makes products for several industries, the concrete product line, known as Lavina, has become the company’s largest division and its top revenue generator. The Lavina line includes grinding and polishing machines and burnishers. It also includes dust extractors and diamond tools for nearly any floor application from prep to maintenance. In fact, Superabrasive is among very few companies in the industry that manufactures both the machines and the diamond tools. Its products are used on projects of all sizes. Overall, these projects range from high-end residential jobs to big-box retail stores and large industrial plants.
