The ALMCO barrel machine is a durable tumbling unit designed to finish batches of parts or larger individual parts. The machine processes parts by rotating them in a multi-sided, urethane-lined barrel that is also filled with processing media and liquid compound. The tumbling action inside the barrel deburrs the parts as the top section of media continuously slides down the incline created from the barrel rotation.
The ALMCO Deluxe series of barrels are full-sized units that are designed to accommodate several options and be used in conjunction with automated systems. These systems have the ability to be loaded via incoming conveyor and be unloaded onto a screener to separate the parts from the media and processing liquid. The system then returns the media to the barrel prior to the next cycle. This series is available in custom sizes and with multiple compartments.
