CS Unitec's PTX Eco Smart surface finishing machine has balanced straight-line handling, high torque, and electronic speed control. It produces matte, satin, mirror, and other finishes on steel, stainless steel, and nonferrous metals. Additionally, it can polish inside corners and remove welds, deep scratches, oxidation, rust, and paint.
The machine has a patented abrasive mounting system designed to save time and eliminate vibration. Users can change grinding and polishing wheels in seconds without tools or hardware, states the company. The hollow-core abrasive wheel slides onto the finned, rigid rubber shaft and secures itself automatically when the machine turns. The finned shaft design ensures 100 percent concentricity, according to the manufacturer.
The company offers hollow-core abrasives; the lack of a plastic core is intended to reduce weight, simplify use, and minimize pollution from production to waste disposal.
