The finishing tools FINISHTOOL SERIES 200 can be used for surface finishing
with radial wheels such as grinding and polishing of almost any material.
The spindle is radially compliable while the necessary pressure is monitored by
The weight can be completely compensated and the compliance force monitored to zero
by switching the compliance air. The compliance is effected by a parallelogram mechanism
that assures that the movement is parallel and that the tool angle does not change.
The wear of the wheel is monitored by a sensor and compensated by program control.
The tool can either be mounted stationary onto a tool stand (Toolstand) or onto the robot
If these tools at the robot have to be changed automatically, a tool changer (Changing
Systems) is available. Commercially available wheels can be used. The speed can be
optimized to the application by selection of a suitable air motor.
To assure an optimal life of the air motors the compressed air must be cleaned and lubricated.
