6/9/10 – Spiral-bottom round bowl finishing machine from Almco Inc
6 September 2010
Almco Inc, has introduced a new range of spiral round-bowl finishing machines. This latest model, named SBB-24, includes a 20-hp 1800 rpm motor, a 17.5-inch-diameter tub cross section, an overall diameter of 73 inches, and a machine height of 52 inches. Overall machine dimensions are 96 inches long, excluding the electrical control box, and 82 inches wide.
The SBB-24 can lift and move numerous different parts over the separating dam without jamming or hitting each other on the screen. The tub has a 1-inch thick polyurethane lining which protects parts. It has a full-circle baffle that keeps parts in the media mass constantly, for more precise and faster processing. It also has a 24 cubic foot tub that accommodates for large and small parts.
The new design is energy-efficient and features automatic separation of parts from the abrasive media, at pre-determined intervals according to finishing requirements. The separating screen surface is longer than other round-bowl designs, which means faster separation of parts and machine unloading.
Almco Inc are based in Minnesota manufactures custom-designed equipment for metal parts, deburring and finishing, as well as parts cleaning and cost-saving liquid filtration systems.
