The ALMCO spindle machine is a high-speed deburring machine for finishing single parts loaded one at a time or for several smaller parts fixed to a shaft. The machine holds the part(s) on a rotating spindle and lowers it into a rotating tub of media. This media may be plastic, ceramic, steel or granulated particles of many types. The media strikes the part as it rotates in the tub and deburrs the part. The media moves at up to 1000 surface feet per minute in relation to the part. This is a very aggressive process and often cycle times are less than one minute per part per spindle. The “2SF” models have two spindles and may produce two parts per minute from the machine. These machines are available in a basic unit that must be loaded by hand or the “RA” series that is typically fully automated with a robotic loading system. Typical applications are shafts, transmission components, gears, aerospace parts, medical parts, automotive parts, handgun components, bearing races, etc. These machines are custom configured to meet each customer’s requirements. The process is very repeatable, and these machines are often used for high-precision components.
