Almco Disk Finisher Expands Company Line of Machines with Time-, Labor-Saving Features
New Model Assures Less Downtime, Reduces Loss of Small Parts at Bottom of Bowl
ALBERT LEA, Minnesota (January 2, 2008) - A new centrifugal disk finisher with competitively superior features and benefits has been added to the broad line of metal parts finishing equipment from ALMCO KleenTec, Inc.
Key to the new Model ACDF-75 is its advanced design that includes a smaller opening between spinning and stationery components at the base of the machine, keeping tiny parts from disappearing during the finishing process. Additionally, the ALMCO model's urethane-lined bowl requires no frequent relining, which saves considerable equipment downtime.
Centrifugal disk finishers are ideally suited to medical, electronic, automotive, aerospace and other applications involving small metal parts. While eliminating hand deburring, the machines can be placed side by side in a multi-unit, in-line arrangement. And they can accomplish finishing tasks five to 10 times faster than conventional vibratory equipment.
The ALMCO model is available in a choice of four different sizes to accommodate varying part dimensions and batch quantities. All are exceptionally compact, taking up minimal floor space.
Light in weight for easy movement, the ACDF-75 is PLC-equipped for precision deburring, and it offers variable speed. Part/media separation screens are included for reduced operator involvement.
Centrifugal disk finishing, which is becoming increasingly popular in numerous industries, includes a bowl with a spinning disk at the bottom. The disk propels the abrasive media upward against the interior sidewalls, which act as a brake. This causes the mass to turn over and return to the center of the disk, where it is set in motion again.
For further information on the ALMCO model, contact ALMCO KleenTec, Inc., 507 West Front Street, Albert Lea, Minnesota 56007, phone 1-800-521-2740, or visit the company on the Internet at www.almcokleentec.com.
