Grinding

Remove Inconsistencies and Elevate Your Part's Finish

Automated Robotic grinding is an application where PushCorp's equipment excels. Our precise force and constant speed end effectors account for part variability and abrasive wear. Therefore, manual processes can be automated easier than ever.

In non-automated processes, operators rely on visual inspections. Not only is this is a tedious process, but it leaves the finish completely up to the individual.

The skill level of these workers are extremely variable due to the high turnover in the industry. As a result, manually finished parts are inconsistent, being either over or under processed.  In addition to an inferior finished part, non-automated processes use a higher volume of abrasives. For example, if the operator applies too much force the abrasive media glazes over. Conversely, the abrasive will not re-fracture if too little force is applied. With an automated system, not only is the part quality significantly better, but abrasive life can increase by 200-300%.

Robotic Offroad Bumper Grinding

As an illustration, this video shows how effortless robotic grinding can be. In fact, a robot paired with a PushCorp force compliance device and servo spindle is just what you need to automate your material removal process.

This video showcases an AFD310-2 and an STC0605-BT30. Together, this equipment is able to quickly and efficiently remove welds and blend them with the parent material.

There are two key elements to this process. First, the AFD310 applies consistent force in any orientation. Next, the STC0605-BT30 rotates the abrasive at a constant speed. Together, they work seamlessly to create beautifully finished parts time and time again.

Additionally, high quality abrasives should be used to achieve the most consistent finish. Low caliber grinding media may cut well at the beginning, but will often degrade quickly. Therefore, we recommend the following companies:
