 WHL-5-10HP-X2-LC - Dual Wheel Head

Dual shaft heavy duty wheel head driven by 5HP AC motor. Abrasive wheels like grinding, polishing, or buffing can be mounted on both ends of the shaft using flanges and standard hardware. Entire wheel assembly is mounted on linear compliance slide which moves during process while exerting force which can be controlled from a programmable controller. This allows easier part programming where finishing process is done by pushing part into the force controlled linear slide travel. The head comes with mounting pedestal and can optionally be with fully connected controls interfacing to customer's system via discrete I/O, Ethernet I/P, Profibus, or Devicenet.
