Space-Saving Deburring System with Material Handling Designed by Almco for Work Cells
ALBERT LEA, Minnesota (July 8, 2004) -- A compact vibratory finishing system developed by ALMCO, Inc., features built-in material handling equipment and a screener that separates parts from the finishing media while requiring just 92 square feet of floor space.
The self-contained Model V-24TF, from the recognized leader in highly automated and time-saving thru-feed systems, was specifically designed for work cell environments and other tight spaces in all types of industrial operations. It has a 24-cubic-foot-capacity finishing tub and vibration frequency of 875 to 2000 VPM.
Parts along with the finishing media are manually loaded in the ALMCO unit, and a time cycle is selected at a separate electrical pedestal mount. At the end of the finishing process, the machine stops and motor speed is lowered. Parts are manually removed from the screener, while media travels by conveyor back to the loading end and into the tub for re-use.
Sound hoods covering the entire length of the V-24TF are part of the framework. They control noise level below 85 dba to meet OSHA standards.
Another featured component of the system is a 15-hp variable speed drive developed and manufactured by ALMCO. It has fewer parts in the single sliding face, which minimizes the possibility of a break-down and simplifies repairs and parts replacement.
Other features of the V-24TF include a spray bar system above the tub for compound and water entry, and a spray rinse for parts as they enter the screener. The 8-foot tub, measuring 19-3/4 inches wide, is lined with long-wearing urethane, which protects precision parts during the deburring process.
