Robotic deburring from Abtex www.fanucamerica.com
Corporation, a leader in the manufactureof
deburring technology systems, has expanded its
capabilities to include robotic deburring systems.
Abtex custom designs, engineers and integrates
each system for customer applications.
the photo shows, a maneuverable arm moves workpieces
to allow the deburring of multiple surfaces
in a single operation. The system in the photo
also allows the robot to service several tools.
After deburring with the Abtex abrasive filament
radial wheel brush, the robot arm will move
the workpiece to the Artifex soft polishing wheel
for finishing. (Abtex is the exclusive United States
distributor of German-made Artifex
elastic-bonded abrasives for metal applications.)
Unattended operation allows Abtex robotic deburring systems to increase throughput substantially while decreasing personnel costs and worker fatigue related to performing redundant operations.
