  • Chord length
  • Final edge feedback
  • Thickness feedback
  • High precision measurement devices

Main Technologies

  • Part-in-hand
  • 6 axis Fanuc robot
  • BrainWave software
  • Adaptive machining (profiling process)
  • Closed-loop (profiling process)
  • Advanced compliant belt sander, powered by FerRobotics Technology®, with response time as low as 4ms
  • Automatic tool change
  • Easy to load drawer for quick machine loading
  • Non-contact feedback for profile and chord length
  • Wheel dressing and probing
  • High speed spindle with robotized automatic tool change, allowing multiple abrasives and long tool life
  • Intelligent stacklight with advanced features such as cycle progress giving your operators enhanced visibility
  • Safety light system inside cell to prevent dangerous situations
  • Belt sander and spindle tools mounted on indexers to maximize robot reach and flexibility allowing more part varieties
  • Dust collector piping with active monitoring connected to plant system (depends on dust material)
  • Safety light system inside cell

Some Benefits

  • Controlled environment reducing worker’s injuries
  • Compact cell easily integrated to your production line
  • Respect of tolerances according to the engineers’ design
  • Improve quality and consistency of your production
  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce abrasive consumption (up to 75%) and therefore its cost
  • Increases the life of your parts and reduces the amount of scrapped parts

Remote support package available, allowing AV&R to connect remotely and see what is happening inside the system.
