Abtex Corp. has expanded its Tri-Ten series of deburring systems to include a model that is designed to accept precision-ground parts in carriers directly from a grinding, lapping or honing machine, resulting in higher productivity and time savings.
A magnetized belt grips the parts in their carrier and presents them to a planetary head, where three 10-inch, abrasive-filament-disc brushes deburr the upward-facing surface. The system is designed to accurately control edge break, surface finish and material removal. Parts are then rinsed as they pass under a coolant shower and then dried by an air knife before traveling over a demagnetizer. The parts then are removed from the carrier, flipped manually, and sent through the system again to deburr the opposite sides.
All Tri-Ten machines are customized with application-specific abrasive brushes with silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, ceramic or diamond filaments. They are mounted in the company’s proprietary, molded, composite material.
