The Spindle Machine is a high-speed, precision deburring machine for finishing single parts on each of its two spindles or several smaller parts on fixtures. The machine holds the part(s) on rotating spindles that are lowered into a rapidly moving tub of abrasive media. The most common abrasive media used is a fine, granular aluminum oxide. Other choices for media are pre-shaped plastic, ceramic, steel, corn cob and walnut shell. The abrasive media swiftly flows over the part(s) as it rotates in the tub removing sharp edges and improving surface finishes. The media moves at up to 1000 surface feet per minute past the part. This is a very aggressive process and cycle times are often less than one minute per part, per spindle. The process is very repeatable, and these machines are often used for high-precision components.
Various applications include shafts, transmission components, gears, aerospace parts, medical parts, automotive parts, firearm components, bearing races, etc. These machines are custom configured to meet individual customer’s requirements.
