Abtex Corp. combines its Tri-Ten technology with robotics and a custom-designed circular table in a system that deburrs nearly 500 fineblanked parts per hour.

The company’s Tri-Ten technology features the deburring power of three 10" nylon filament abrasive brushes revolving at up to 1,500 rpm under a planetary head that moves to deburr the parts without affecting their surface dimensions.

To move the fineblanked parts through the deburring process, the company uses a six-axis Fanuc robot to feed a customized, non-magnetic table containing 14 changeable nests that hold parts during deburring. The system incorporates inflow and outflow conveyors to move parts efficiently through the operation.

According to Abtex, the system, which currently deburrs a minimum of 480 parts per hour, is designed handle twice that volume with no additional equipment required.
