Abtex Corporation, a leader in the manufacture of deburring technology systems, has expanded its capabilities to include robotic deburring systems. Abtex custom designs, engineers and integrates each system for customer applications.
As 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.
