- Tandem planetary heads
- Parts demagnetized, rinsed
ABTEX CORPORATION expanded its Tri-Ten line deburring systems to include a two-head, U-Series, high-productivity operation. The second planetary head, operating in tandem with the first, provides extra brushing time to deburr a part completely, without sacrificing the conveyor speed that is critical to high throughput
At one end of the system, parts are placed on a magnetic conveyor that carries them through the first offset planetary deburring head, where three 10-inch Abtex fiber abrasive disc brushes deburr the upward facing surface. Then, the parts pass through a second, identical planetary head before being captured by a turnover conveyor that flips the parts for the return trip through both planetary heads.
After both sides of the parts are deburred, they are demagnetized, and pass under a rinse and air knife before exiting at an opening next to the entrance.
The new system is equipped mist-collection and coolant-filtration functions. The filtration system includes a magnetic separator to capture fine metallic particles. A paper bed filter provides final filtration.
