New Round-Bowl Machines offer Low Price, High Performance


Three models in a new line of economical round-bowl finishing machines with fewer automated features while delivering the same maximum performance, reliability and efficiency, are now available from ALMCO, Inc.

The company’s new VibeMaster Series includes the VM-3, VM-5 and VM-10 models, with tub capacities of 3, 5.3 and 10.6 cubic feet, respectively. The key difference between these machines and those in ALMCO’s standard OR Series is manual versus automatic separation of metal parts and abrasive media at the conclusion of the deburring process.

Compact and space-saving, the high-energy VibeMasters feature an extended screen deck and a thick, molded polyurethane-lined bowl for longer life and protection against part impingement. They also feature variable adjustable amplitude, AC variable frequency drive, and an optional economy compound pump.

Presented as an economical alternative to other machines from ALMCO and other manufacturers, the new line is designed “for smaller, non-high-volume, non-automated shops where non-automatic, manual operating parts/media separation is acceptable,” according to Larry Beavens, national sales director. Currently in stock at company headquarters, ready for immediate shipment, all three models are “tremendously price-competitive,” he notes.
