“Surf” technology for deburring, surface grinding, smoothing, and polishing
- Fully automatic dry or wet processing
- Six-axis robotics
- Rotating process bowl, plus media
The Surf Finisher was developed in response to growing demand for improvements in the cost efficiency, stability and repeatability of surface finishing for high-value and complex components.
ROSLER METAL FINISHING USA LLC describes its new Surf Finishing machine as “the forefront of surface finishing” — an automated process that is recommended for deburring, surface grinding, smoothing and polishing of delicate, high-value components with complex geometries. The Surf Finisher offers several benefits, including fully automatic processing,very short cycle times, high process stability, repeatability, and effective finishing of precisely targeted surface areas.
Surf Finisher technology allows fully automatic dry or wet processing of delicate workpieces, a standard that previously had been achievable only with less reliable and more costly manual finishing, or with more expensive mechanical systems.
Depending on the finishing application, the technology uses either one or multiple six-axis robotic arms to lower the work pieces into a rotating processing bowl filled with grinding or polishing media. This process allows either all-around surface finishing of the workpieces, or selective treatment of targeted surface areas.
The simultaneous “surfing” of the workpieces through the grinding media and the rotation of the processing bowl generate an extremely high grinding pressure. The result is a very intensive surface finishing process, in remarkably short cycle times.
The Surf Finisher was developed in response to growing demand for improvements in the cost efficiency, stability, and repeatability of surface finishing processes for highly valuable and complex components. It is capable of fully automatic dry or wet processing of these components, which up to now could be finished only with costly manual or mechanical systems.
The developer offers Surf Finishing as “the ideal technology” for single component treatment in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries, or any other industry where precise deburring, surface grinding, smoothing and polishing are essential.
