Deburring: Wet applications with Coolant Photos

 14273 - Wet Deburring Cell (multiple holders)

ACT-14273 is a deburring cell for finishing processes requiring liquid coolant and high production rates by handling multiple parts at once. The cell originally built for deburring of fuel injection holder tubes but can be used in other applications. All components are mounted on compact base with coolant collection and re-circulating system integrated in it. Parts loaded in trays are moved into the cell and located on conveyor. SCARA type robot picks up multiple parts from tray (6 in this case) and brings them to multi-head spindle station where abrasive media deburs all parts in one cycle (in this case bottle brushes). Coolant is automatically sprayed as programmed. Finished parts are placed back in tray and next batch picked up. Once the tray is completed it is conveyed out of the cell and the next one is metered in.

 12261 - Wet Deburring Cell

ACT-12261 is a deburring cell for processes requiring liquid coolant and high production rates by handling multiple parts at once. The cell was originally used for deburring of fuel injection needles but can easily be adapted for use in other application. All components are mounted on compact base with integrated coolant collection and re-circulating system. Parts located in trays are moved into the cell and located on 2-level conveyor system where the upper level is input and lower level outputs the trays. The trays are automatically lowered from upper level by and elevator mechanism. SCARA type robot picks up parts from load area (2 at once in this case) and loads them into gripper spindle station on 90 degree indexer At the same time 2 other spindle stations on the indexer perform brushing operations by lowering parts and spinning them in both directions while brushes are moved against them. Last station on indexer has finished parts unloaded from it by another SCARA robot and placed then in tray.

Multi-head part spindles on indexer have up/down linear motion and continuous rotation in both directions. Multi-head brush station outside the indexer have linear in/out motion and reversible rotation with speed control. Brush wheel wear is compensated automatically via system software. Coolant is sprayed through multiple nozzles at the brush stations as programmed. Indexer rotates 90 degrees advancing parts from load, through 2 brushing operations, to unload when all station cycles are completed. These rotary process steps allow very high production rates.
