High Energy Disc Systems
High energy disc systems are a revolutionary advancement in the realm of surface finishing and deburring. Their use has transformed the finishing process across a variety of industries, ensuring that workpieces get the desired surface finish with unparalleled efficiency.
High-energy disc machines offer an efficient alternative to conventional vibratory machines, providing performance levels of up to 10 to 30 times higher than conventional vibratory equipment. High Energy Disc machine are ideal when short cycle times, high throughput, and batch integrity are required.
E Series machines are standalone units that can be used with external screens, or linked to existing vibratory screening units. One or multiple units can run in a finishing bank to meet production requirements of smaller or delicate parts, that may require some operator assistance to separate.
Series E/SM & E/SA High-Energy Disc Systems
These series link the machining unit directly to the work piece separation device. This makes the system particularly user friendly. The processing media remain within the system after being separated from the work pieces. The combined working-separating unit swivels back, motor-driven, into the working position after the separating process and the processing medium thereby returns to the working container – ready for the next charge.
Series A2 High Energy Disc Systems
FKS A2 series high energy disc systems are designed for continuous processing of high volume parts. This automated finishing systems is always processing/deburring a batch of parts while the previous batch is being separated. Media is returned to the load hopper where new/raw parts and existing media will be automatically loading into the FKS A2 processing bowl. Part mixing from charge to charge can be nearly completely ruled out.
Introduction to High Energy Disc Systems
High energy disc systems are a subset of mass finishing solutions. Unlike traditional tumblers, disc finishers utilize centrifugal force created by rotating discs. These discs, usually made of materials such as rubber or plastic, rotate at high speeds, ensuring rapid deburring and polishing times. The process is often quicker than other methods, making these systems a go-to choice for many applications.
Applications and Industries
The range and variety of applications for high energy disc systems are expansive. From the jewelry industry, which requires precision polishing and surface finishing, to manufacturing sectors dealing with larger workpieces, the use of these systems is widespread. Their capacity to handle various materials, from metals to plastic, ensures their utility across a wide spectrum of industries.
Digital Integration and Advances
As industries move towards digitization, even hardware tools like high energy disc systems are not left behind. Modern disc finishers often come with digital interfaces, allowing users to access information, control the speed, direction, and force with precision. Some advanced models might even have storage capacities, allowing teams to store and write essential process data. These systems can be integrated with computer devices, ensuring a streamlined flow of information.
Furthermore, with the advent of optical and digital backup solutions, some systems can be paired with uninterruptible power supplies or backup drives. This hardware integration ensures that crucial data or specific settings are not lost during unexpected shutdowns.
High energy disc systems are a testament to how technological advancements can refine and revolutionize processes like deburring and surface finishing. With their speed, efficiency, and adaptability to the needs of various industries, they stand out as an optimal solution for many surface finishing challenges. As these systems continue to evolve, integrating more digital tools and offering even more versatile solutions, their relevance and utility in the industry will only grow.
