Components are transported to the loop belt deflashing machine via a feed conveyor and a vibrating feed chute. The special design of the loop belt with built-in cams, allows parts transport like in a screw conveyor. The components travel at a defined speed through the deflashing zone.
The components are deflashed by one or more turbines.
Residual blast media is removed in a rotating screen drum. The components discharged from the machine are largely dust-free and ready for subsequent operations.
Key features of loop belt machines
Tunnel deflashing machines were developed primarily for deflashing thin-walled and fragile components.
The tunnel transport system transports fragile components at a defined speed through the deflashing zone, turning them over continuously to ensure that they are deflashed from all sides. A given distance is maintained between individual components to prevent them from touching each other and becoming damaged.
Sturdier components are fed into the machine in bulk by a feed conveyor and a load funnel.
