Features

Superior Bowl Lining

The bowl lining is extremely important as it ensures the base bowl fabrication is protected and the components are effectively processed. A special grade of polyurethane materials, formulated to enhance the overall life of the machine, is used, with hot cured cast linings or spray linings available up to 30 mm thick in processing areas. The high wear resistant, polyurethane material reduces the coefficient of friction between the media and bowl, increasing media life.

A wide range of cast systems to choose from, where variables such as shore hardness range, physical properties, and chemical resistance can be selected for particularly difficult applications.

Small delicate parts, or part on part processes, can benefit from wedge profile lining which prevents the parts from sticking to the outer wall of the process chamber.

Process Chamber

The process bowls are stress relieved to improve their life and the internal chamber section designed to optimise the tumbling action and ensure shorter process times. They are also designed to ensure ease of customisation if required.

Pneumatic Separation system

If auto separation is required, this option ensures no parts are trapped under the flap and the flap system is not damaged. By reversing the rotational direction of the motor the contents in the process chamber move in the opposite direction of the separation area and clearing the area so the flap seats correctly.

Dosing Unit

A diaphragm dosing pump, usually wired to the control panel of the machine determines the liquid compound flow rate dosed in to the bowl. Once set it offers accurate control of liquid compound use, reducing wastage and saving costs. Capable of handling all types of liquid compounds the system helps to achieve a clean component, extended media life and maintains the cleanliness of the bowl. A dual feed system allows liquid compound and water to be dosed separately, so local water authority regulations can be met without the need for expensive header tanks. Floor-mounted or wall-mounted dosing units are available.

Vibratory Bowl - Single speed motor

Vibratory Bowl - O Series

Where manual separation is mandatory, both large and small batches of components can be processed in this machine. Featuring a single speed motor, the flyweights are adjustable to transfer the optimum amount of energy and efficiently produce the required finish.

Vibratory Bowl - Separation system

Vibratory Bowl - S Series

Where separation of components from the media is required after processing, these machines feature a mechanical flap directing the media and components onto a separation grid with openings that the media fall through, back into the bowl, while the components continue to a separate receptacle. Reverse separation is also possible if the application requires it.

Bench Mounted Vibratory Bowls

Bench Mounted Vibratory Bowls

These machines are ideally suited for small batch works and are capable of deburring, burnishing, radiusing, descaling, polishing, cleaning and surface improvement.

Vibratory Bowl - Ball burnishing

Vibratory Bowl - B Series

Specially designed for burnishing applications using stainless steel media or a mix of burnishing media, these machines are designed for this heavy duty application with a powerful drive system and special springs. The bowl has a special rubber lining to assist the movement of the parts during the process and can be manufactured with or without separation to suit the applications.

Machines are easy to operate via a standard DOL starter and can be integrated with a bench drier. Cast as a single moulding, the bowl is extremely robust in its construction and, for plants with multiple machines, a variety of polyurethane liner colours are available to help operators match the correct machine to a component or process stage.

Vibratory Bowl - part-on-part application

Vibratory Bowl - P Series

This series is robust and has been designed for a process where 100% discharge of media and parts is required at the end of the process.This is acomplished through the pneumatically operated discharge door which opens and allows the unload of media and components.

Vibratory Bowl - Avoids impingement damages

Vibratory Bowl - I Series

Unique in concept, these machines feature individual chambers to avoid components impinging on each other and causing damage during processing. It requires manual loading/unloading.

On completion of the process parts and media are discharged from the bowl as a pneumatically operated door opens. Additional equipment can enable automated component/media separation and auto return of the media to the bowl.

Vibratory Bowl - Processing of large circular components

Featuring a narrower central section of the working bowl, this machine enables the processing of large circular components, such as vane rings, without the need for fixtures. The machine can accommodate a component with a bore of more than 250 mm and an overall diameter of no larger than 940 mm.

Vibratory Bowl - Overband electro-magnetic separator

This series of machines enables the separation of components and media using an overband electro-magnetic separator. Designed with a higher ramp to allow smaller parts to be separated, the automated process offers greater control.

Located toward the discharge end of the non-magnetic conveyor belt, the electro-magnetic separator is a mounted, totally enclosed magnetising coil with vacuum impregnated wound assemblies to prevent ingress of dust, dirt and moisture.
