Polishing & Grinding Machine

SDC’s expert design and engineering team built a fully automated, high-speed processing machine to polish and grind ceramic parts used in lighting products.

Custom Assembly & Processing Machine Details

This fully automated work cell includes an HMI (Human Machine Interface) to deliver consistent feedback and system monitoring and a robotic controller for in-feed/out-feed of parts, all while delivering 1,200 finished parts per hour.

The fully customized system includes:

  • Custom written PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) interfaced with an HMI (Human Machine Interface)
  • CAM driven rotary indexing table with 16 positions
  • All parts fixturing designed and manufactured by SDC
  • CAM derived motions power: auto polishing, auto grinding, and auto discharge pick-and-place motion
  • Custom SDC 2-axis servo grinding station
  • Automatic pallet handling Bosch Power & Free Conveyor
  • Robotic loading/in-feed
  • SCARA robotic unloading/out-feed
