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
