RC Radially-Compliant Deburring Tool
ATI Industrial AutomationPosted 06/01/2008
The RC Radially-Compliant Deburring Tool from ATI Industrial Automation is a robust, high-speed, and lightweight air-turbine driven deburring unit for deburring aluminum, plastic, steel, etc. with a robot or CNC machine. Formerly known as Flexdeburr, the RC is especially suited to deburring parting lines and removing flash from parts. However, its flexible design allows it to be used in a wide variety of applications. The RC’s pneumatically controlled, articulated design allows the cutting bit to follow the part profile and compensate for surface irregularities allowing high feed rates with uniform quality in any orientation. Compliance is supported by air pressure applied to the shaft of the unit and is used to perform consistent deburring on irregular part patterns.
