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.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
