Position and wear monitoring of the grinding heads

Pneumatic cylinders press the grinding heads onto the surface of the stone plate. An MPA position sensor placed on every cylinder continuously monitors the height of the grinding head and thus the grinding head wear. This makes is possible to plan when grinding heads will be exchanged.
