the Swing-Grind-er for deburring
According to the manufacturer, the machine is three to four times faster than
The hand-operated device, which
features a rotating head, provides a
grinding disc on one side and deburring
brush on the other with indexing capability.
Parts are held with a friction cover on
an extraction or downdraft table.

Robotic plasma beam processor
Voortman has released a new version of
its V808 robotic plasma beam processor. The Panasonic robot has been upgraded for faster data transmission and
higher accuracy, says the company. The
frame has been redesigned to reduce
the footprint by up to 300 sq. ft. and increase cutting stability.
The system cuts profiles from small to
large, up to 33,000 lbs. maximum position weight. The system’s industrial robot reaches all four sides of the beam,
now with improved precision, says the
A new line of Handte Vortex wet scrubbers from Camfil Air Pollution Control
(APC) offer wet dust collection with
plug-and-play operation and low maintenance, the company reports.
The scrubbers use combined principles of water swirl and disintegration to
provide two levels of separation of dust
particles traveling through the system.
The scrubbers work best with medium-to large-grain emissions and provide 99
percent removal efficiency on particles
of 3.0 micron and larger.
The SBM-XS machine from Lissmac
for double-sided deburring and edge
rounding of small parts is an alternative to vibratory and manual deburring.
Providing uniform processing on both
sides of sheet metal parts in one pass,
the compact, energy-efficient machine
handles small parts from 1 by 1 by 0.039
in. to 7. 8 by 7. 8 by 0.59 in.
The SMW 123 features a wet process
for surface finishing, deburring, and
edge rounding of sheet metal parts. It
uses a wide-belt grinding head, plus an
additional unit that can be equipped
with either one barrel brush or a set of
top brushes. This German-engineered
and -built machine is a lean alternative
to the company’s 5-series line.
Rail tool changer
ATI Industrial Automation’s rail tool
changer allows for quick changeover of
press transfer rails.
According to the company, the tool
is engineered to withstand the high-speed, high-inertia loading environment that is typical with this process.

Tooling exhibited its new Su-perMax™ tool
coating, CleanBend™ forming technology, Bevel Tang Style press brake tooling, and 1 Micron Optics for fiber lasers.
The proprietary tool coating is formulated for punch press tooling. According to the manufacturer, it outperforms
currently available premium coatings
by two to eight times, depending on the
The press brake tooling is designed
for use in newer Amada-style press
brakes. It features a punch tang geometry that is compatible with punch
clamping systems requiring a beveled

Compact welding machines
Fronius has introduced the TPS 270i
C Pulse and TPS 320i C Pulse with integrated wire-feed unit. Designed for
welding currents of up to 270 amps
and 320 amps, respectively, the compact welding machines are suitable for
GMAW, GTAW, and electrode welding.
In addition to the pulse welding package included as standard, the standard
Fronius welding package and the low
spatter control and pulse multicontrol
processes developed for TPS/i are available as options.
