SPV Spintec AB has introduced another version of their automatic deburring machine for deburring of gear wheels and contoured profiles on round and oval workpieces such as rings, hubs and discs. The 68 2006 is a flexible machine for removal of burrs on gear wheels, castings, rings or flanges. It has been developed for a range of applications and is particularly suitable for incorporation into robot cells.
The machine is said to have excellent programmable repeatability and is adjustable for various sizes of work parts as much as 800-mm diameter. The machine is easy to reset for different details and can be driven remotely with a robot or used as a stand-alone machine, according to the company.
The machine can be supplied with several spindles running at two different speeds allowing for flexible operation. This gives the possibility, for example, of having one grinding spindle for polishing of any residual sharp edges, using a different tool size running at a different speed. It can be supplied with various pneumatic chuck options and a Plexiglas enclosure for operator safety. Typical materials processed are soft and heat-treated steels, or nonferrous alloys, but also softer materials like cast iron, aluminum or other light alloy/composites can be processed.
