FINISHSTATION Grinding/brushing station
The grinding-/brushing station FINISHSTATION is being used to grind and polish edges and surfaces as well as for deburring operations on metallic as well as nonmetallic parts.
The wheels are mounted so that they are in one axis radially compliant.
The brush can therefore easily follow the part shape when working. This is particularly useful when working with hard wheels.
The compliance pressure against the work piece can be controlled from the robot program.
The wear of the brush is monitored by a sensor and compensated by the robot controller.
The station can be equipped with different wheel types such as brushes, polishing wheels, and hard grinding wheels etc.
The design of this station allows an easy integration into a robot system.
On request the station can be supplied with protection covers on the wheels, polishing paste injection guns, etc.
For an optimal speed adjustment of the wheels the station can
be used with a variable frequency drive.
