High Pressure Water (Hydro-Deburring) and Mechanical Deburring with Integral Automated Part Handling
The machine tool quality Bertsche iJET provides both powered and mechanical rotary deburring and high pressure water deburring (HPWD) in the same machine. Multiple parts and part features can be processed simultaneously. Work stations can be tooled for either water deburring, mechanical deburring, chip flushing, rinsing and/or drying. Parts can be pre-washed before deburr, rinsed after deburr and dried; all in the same machine. The rotary axis is used to index the part, spin the part in a submerged wash cycle and to spin the part dry. For added productivity the CNC-controlled iJET is designed to integrate with a variety of automated in-feed and out-feed systems including rotary indexing part magazines or conveyor lines.
Significant cycle time reduction
The Bertsche iJET is designed to handle multiple parts and perform multiple processes in single cycle. Pre-washing, deburring, rising and drying parts inside a single machine reduces the amount of parts handling, lowers capital costs and shortens overall cycle times.
More reliable design concept
The iJet is a high pressure deburring system which moves the part to the water jet nozzle and not the nozzle to the part. Competitive machine designs typically move the water nozzle to the part and therefore require flexible high pressure hoses which are prone to failure. Use of stationary workstations allows for more complex tooling including multiple simultaneous feature deburring. Stationary high pressure water jet deburr stations are alloy steel piped providing greater reliability and require little or no maintenance.
