With the option ‘gap rinsing’ (rinsing of the gap, interface, between spinner and wear ring), the new Turbotron centrifugal disk machines can now be used for finishing small to midsize, extremely thin fine blanked workpieces. They are equally suited for deburring, edge radiusing, surface smoothing and polishing. The new machines not only help to lower the initial investment expenses, but with their low wear rate they also contribute to significantly lower operating costs.
Gap rinsing prevents thin work pieces from being wedged between spinner and work bowl. This helps avoid workpiece damage and machine crashes. The gap rinsing option now permits using the high energy TT machines for processing very thin parts, which previously had to be finished in conventional mass finishing equipment at much longer cycle times.
