Abtex Corp.'s Tri-Ten U series planetary-head, return-to-operator (RTO) deburring system deburrs both sides of a part in a single pass. It is designed for applications requiring a small footprint and portability.
Parts are loaded at one end, and a magnetic conveyor passes them through an offset planetary deburring head where three fiber abrasive brushes deburr the upward-facing surface. The conveyor then carries the parts to a mechanism that flips them onto a parallel, magnetized conveyor that transports the parts back through the planetary head and deposits them at an opening next to the entrance.
