This new machine is built to complete finishing cycles up to 30 times faster than rotary barrels and 15-25 times faster than vibratory. Its new geared drive runs more quietly and needs less maintenance. The machines uses four barrels spaced evenly on a heavy-duty turret. The series' models all come in standard or figure-8 design, in manual and automatic operation. They can be customized with variable speed for infinite process control, separation, removable "hot pour" linings and compartmentalized barrels. Free sample processing is available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
