ALBERT LEA, Minnesota (November 12, 2010) - New four-color literature from ALMCO, Inc., describes a recently introduced model - the SBB-24 - in the company's line of spiral-bottom round-bowl finishing machines, offering features unmatched by other manufacturers.
A unique full-circle baffle that keeps parts in the media mass constantly for faster, more precise processing is among the key features noted in the new literature. It also points to a new, energy-efficient design with labor-saving, automatic separation of parts from the abrasive media, and a separating screen surface that is longer than other round-bowl designs, which permits faster separation of parts and faster machine unloading.
The 24-cubic-foot tub can accommodate large as well as small parts, which can be lifted over the separating dam without jamming or hitting each other on the screen. Larger parts can be lifted because of the machine's spiral-bottom design that has an up-hill tub bottom providing a larger rolling mass right to the screen area.
The ALMCO literature details specifications of the SBB-24, including a 20-hp drive motor, a 17-inch diameter tub cross section, an overall diameter of 73 inches, and a machine height of 52 inches. Overall dimensions are 96 inches long, including the electrical control box, and 82 inches wide.
The literature also notes the company's "Total Service Concept," which includes process development and guarantee, correct equipment selection with custom design if needed, and media and compound recommendations. ALMCO provides complete equipment setup and run-off prior to shipment, plus equipment installation and operator training at the customer's facility.
