Portable machine for removal of wear edges in cylinder liners
The VKS is a pneumatically driven, portable machine designed for the removal of wear edges in cylinder liners. It is easily adjustable for different wear edge positions and due to its wheel-mounted design is highly accurate, minimising the risk of accidental damage of liners, a frequent occurrence with manual grinding methods. The removal of wear edges shortens piston pulling time and saves piston rings and liners, increasing engine efficiency. With the VKS the complete removal of a wear edge takes no more than 25 minutes and in most cases less, depending on diameter.
Available for several engine makers, e.g: GMT, MAN B&W, MITSUBISHI, PIELSTICK, SULZER, WARTSILA, WICKMANN
