Cookware

Mirror finishes and satin finishes are achieved on aluminum alloy and stainless cookware, with new levels of efficiency, on robotic finishing systems. Lower lot sizes can be processed productively with fast, on-demand changeover, allowing you to reduce work-in-process.

Cost Savings

Switching from manual to robotic automation finishing alone can give you three to four times longer media life, as a result of contact efficiency (time on the part), constant work pressure, cycle time repeatability, and part path programming capability. Flexible, automatic force control, with variable-speed spindle motors, optimizes compliance (response and reaction) of the finishing heads to suit the operation.

Off-line programming and simulation (Roboguide) speeds up the program development process and increases utilization. Universal tooling concepts developed by Acme reduce system design, build and operation costs. All equipment is built to RIA and CE specifications

Unattended operation, with custom part queuing options, reduces labor content.
Maintenance time and costs are minimized with on-line diagnostics and documentation. Troubleshooting can be performed via modem and/or internet, with Ethernet host support.

Media Life Management and Control

Automatic media wear compensation software ensures consistent performance throughout the life of belts and buff wheels by adjusting cell process parameters (such as cutting rate and force) to match the performance and lifespan of the media.
