New at Advanced Engineering 2018 will be the Rösler 'plug and play' RMO trough machine, a compact, mobile and versatile system for finishing both plastic and metal parts, including AM/3D printed.
Rösler offers a new dimension of batch and single item production with the introduction of the RMO. Equipped with a 220 V single-phase connection enabling it to be easily placed at the side of the manufacturing machine, and with a 3000 rpm motor, it is capable of offering short process times with a high grinding effect.
The trough can be easily divided by fitting a series of polyurethane coated plates for the contact-free treatment of sensitive components. And by using the dividers, parts of different sizes can be deburred, surface improved and even ball burnished by using different media in the specific compartments.
The machine is offered complete with noise insulation and integrated long life water/compound supply of 18 litres.
This is a versatile, mobile machine capable of smoothing, radiusing and/or polishing AM/3D printed parts wherever and whenever needed.
Rösler, a leader in the field of shot blasting and mass finishing, offer surface finishing technology for the automotive, motorsport, aerospace, medical, implants/prostheses, food processing and jewellery industries.
Rösler will exhibit on Stand A14 at Advanced Engineering 2018 on 31 October-1 November in Birmingham, UK.
