The model 725JSL motor-mount spindle with compliance unit from Air Turbine Tools is used to deburr an aluminum casting on a Fanuc robot. The deburring tool is rotated at a constant 40,000 rpm and advanced at 5,000 ipm. The compliance unit on the robot enables the customer to deburr parts with irregular flashes after the initial casting operation. The spindle model’s low vibration is said to make it well-suited for such robotic deburring applications.
