 18298 - Disk Deburring or Polishing

ACT-18298 is a robotic cell for deburring or polishing round components such as compressor disks. Parts loaded on servo controlled rotary chuck are processed by abrasives manipulated with articulated robotic arm. These abrasives are stored in docking nests inside the tool magazine and picked up with the auto collet electric spindle carried by the robot. They may include carbide bur bits, debrurring wheels, brushes, or sandpaper rolls. Electric spindle tool equipped with pneumatically operated collet not only allows for automatic handling of such abrasives but also has a programmable speed up to 20,000 RPM and force via rotary compliance. The system has two integrated vision tools: one for inspecting abrasive tools and the other for inspecting and measuring the parts. Motion programs can be offset to compensate for tool deformation and part positioning errors.
