ALMCO Inc. will demonstrate precision deburring of metal parts at speeds to 480 pieces per hour with a unique, automated, double-spindle finishing machine.

ALMCO designed the robot-adaptable machine – its Model 2SF-48RA – to handle complex pieces with diameters to 16 in.

The machine has a 48-in. diameter tub filled with finishing abrasive that can receive parts from two spindles on opposite sides of the tub that automatically raise the parts from the abrasive after a specified period of time. It is designed to provide deburring for close- tolerance radiuses.

The 2SF-48RA is designed to debur complex parts such as gears, bearing cages, splined shafts, pump rotors, and jet compressor discs and blades. The machine requires floor space of approximately 5 feet by 8 feet.
