Deburring / Polishing: Hybrid (Part or Media) Photos

 12258 - Hybrid Deburring/Polishing Cell

ACT-12258 is a robotic deburring or polishing cell capable of processing parts such as blades, vanes, or gears by manipulating them against abrasive media as well as round parts like compressor disks by manipulating finishing media on the part. When executing programs for parts like blades, the robot selects proper gripper from tool magazine, picks up parts from load fixtures on 180 degree indexer, and processes them on two 5HP wheel spindles, one 1/2HP smaller wheel spindle, and high speed bur bit spindle. All spindles are equipped with compliance devices for easier programming. Round parts like compressor disks are picked up from load nests and can be processed on the same spindles as smaller parts. These parts are then loaded on rotary table with 3-jaw chuck and robot processes them using tools such as high speed bur bit spindle and auto collet electric spindle. The auto collet allows robot to use abrasives such as bits, wheels, and brushes, mounted on simple arbors and staged in docking nests inside tool magazine. Round parts can be continuously rotated on table or precisely positioned for processing of features like dovetail slots holes or notches
