Centrifugal disc finishing machine – (Centrifugal disc tumbler)
1. Centrifugal disc finishing machine technical info
Inovatec centrifugal disc finishing machines provide 10 times effective faster grinding speed than conventional vibratory finishing machine. In addition, the machines are typically for small to medium size components high energy surface finishing application.
Besides, for special finishing requirement, the centrifugal disc finishing machine used for super fine and mirror finishing of specific component or high surface requirement.
- Processing unit (work bowl)
The processing bowl cast with DuPont hot molded PU lining with thickness 20-25 mm for long service time and high durability.
- Disc rotating system
High speed control with optional speed inverter from Bosch Rexroth
Also adjustable gap between disc and ring
- Water process system
Compound/water dosing system available with tap
PLC touch screen control with Siemens optional
- Rigid machine construction
2. Feature and applications
- Tilting angle of processing bowl up to 135°
- Optional circular pipe to rinsing and compound dosing
- Gap adjustment for machine for disc and ring
- Manual control unloading
- Possible install of separator screen with customized screen size and shape available
- Optional double layer screen available for remove undersize media
- Economical model for low budget application
The area of application including deburring, surface grinding, radiusing, and polishing of components with thickness around 0.2 mm and larger gear components with more than 150 mm. Typically stamping parts, casting parts as well as machined parts and tuned parts processed with high speed of the centrifugal disc finishing machine can achieve desirable performance in relative short processing times. Besides, it can achieve a high degree of automation with combination of different of other finishing technology according to user requirement.
3. Working principals
The rotating disc with speed 60-250 RPM pushes the media and components mixture upward to the wall of processing bowl then downward to the processing bowl center. Then with reduced acceleration force and enhanced gravity force mixture slides back down to the disc where it is again accelerated. Depending on disc rotation speed, the water level as well as media/compound combination, the finishing applications vary from fast grinding to super fine mirror polishing.
The high energy centrifugal disc finishing machine offer productivity 10-30 times higher than conventional vibratory finishing process.
