The S1 serves as machine for automatically removal of joint flash and ingates on the periphery of car and truck brake discs and brake drums. Joint flashes always occur at these points when two moulds are being put together during the casting. Around 90 grinding plants have been delivered so far.

The S1 of Reichmann & Sohn is an extremely robust machine for automatically deburring in a frequency of five seconds. The S1 runs in three-shift operation at the customers.
