HIGH PRESSURE DEBURRING
As the manufacturing industry faces increasing market demands for higher quality products and lower environmental impact solutions, cleaning processes have become a mandatory and critical operation in every production line. The cleaning process involves the removal of undesired pollutants such as chips, burs, oil, sands, and other contaminants from mechanical parts.
Achieving a high degree of cleanliness before assembling components allows for easier coupling between the parts, resulting in longer product life. The I.T.F. deburring machines offer more than just a deburring station, it is a fully integrated washing solution. Along with high-pressure deburring, it includes additional necessary processes such as IFW, pinpoint washing, rinsing, vacuum drying, and final cooling.
High Pressure Deburring
I.T.F's High Pressure Deburring product line features advanced deburring systems equipped with IP 67 grade robots that follow predefined deburring programs for each mechanical part entering the machine. The system includes a smart identification device at the loading position that recognizes the part and initiates the corresponding deburring program, allowing for recognition of multiple parts without the need for retooling. During the deburring process, the robot arm guides high-pressure nozzles into every fissure to remove contaminants from the part. The robot can pick up parts or guide the nozzles, depending on program specifications and cycle time.
This system is adept at thoroughly cleaning machined parts, removing extraneous burrs, and providing high-pressure deburring, along with the ability to rinse and dry the parts. The conveyor system, despite manual loading and unloading, is fitted with an index at both stations, allowing for robotic unloading via a pick-and-place mechanism.
Operating on a closed-loop system, the machine uses lateral displacement units and pneumatic platforms to return processed pieces on pallets to the load position. The washing and drying process is facilitated by an IP67 robot and a linear conveyor, with the robot count in the plant influenced by factors such as contaminant type, cycle time, and cleanliness requirements.
This machine is adept at meticulously cleansing and degreasing a variety of surfaces, including blind and through holes, pockets, anchors, and both interior and exterior surfaces. It employs a high-pressure washing process that includes flushing, rinsing, and drying, and is capable of handling parts weighing up to 35 lbs.
This machine offers the flexibility to manually or automatically load and unload parts, and its design allows for the cleaning of complex shapes and intricate details without reassembling the washing jets. It employs an IP67 robot and a linear conveyor for the washing and drying process, moving parts between stations and using a vacuum process for drying.
Designed to handle parts up to 463 lbs, this machine provides comprehensive cleaning and degreasing of various surfaces, including but not limited to blind and through holes, pockets, and anchors. It offers a full suite of services, including washing, high-pressure flushing, rinsing, drying, and the option for manual or automated loading and unloading.
This machine stands out for its ability to clean intricate shapes and details without disassembling the washing jets. The washing and drying cycle is executed within a single plant, using an IP67 robot and a linear conveyor, which moves parts between process stations.
Offering unparalleled flexibility, the system adeptly deburrs and washes a diverse range of parts, employing a comprehensive cleaning process that encompasses brushing, intensive flooded washing, high-pressure water jet deburring, final washing, and rinsing. This machine represents a hybridization of the ROBOTFLEX and ROBOTOOL models.
Depending on the station, the robot either transports the parts to the tool or has the tools mounted on its wrist. The vacuum drying and final cooling of the parts are carried out on the standard ITF conveyors, referred to as "Composyl" (PZR), located outside the modular machine.
