Flexible New Deburring Center
Abtex Corporation has introduced a new deburring system that uses the company’s own planetary deburring head. The Tri-Ten Series, named for its three 10-inch brushes per head, is capable of deburring both sides of a flat part in a single pass without flipping it. A magnetic conveyor transports parts under the first planetary deburring head. After the top surface is deburred, a second magnetized conveyor draws up the part and transports it across another, inverted planetary head, which deburrs the bottom surface. A third conveyor passes the part into a degausser that demagnetizes it. The base system design can also be expanded to include application-specific auxiliary equipment. For example, the lead “bay” of the pictured system is a supplemental station that deburrs an isolated part feature. For non-ferrous parts, Tri-Ten Systems can be designed using alternate part fixturing methods.
