Abtex to Debut New Products at the Upcoming IMTS Tradeshow in Chicago

Abtex Corp. to debut new tube-and-pipe deburring machine and a wide range of additional labor-savingtechnologies at IMTS Sept. 8

DRESDEN, NY - Abtex Corp., the world's leading manufacturer of brush/machine deburring solutions for the manufacturing industry, will be demonstrating a wide range of new deburring technologies at Booth N-6658 of the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, September 8-13.


Among the machines and systems on display will be the Abtex Turnamat, a new technology that dramatically streamlines the deburring of symmetrical and asymmetrical straight and curved tubes and pipes of the kind typically used in automotive and aerospace industries. The Turnamat, which can be operated both manually and with an Abtex-designed robotic system, is capable of deburring the end of a cold-rolled steel, stainless steel, or aluminum pipe or tube in approximately 3 seconds.

Other technologies to be demonstrated at the show include the company's custom-designed Tri-Ten planetary head deburring system. The TriTen's three abrasive filament brushes offer manufacturers greatly enhanced productivity by deburring both sides of some stamped, blanked, or powdered-metal parts in a single pass. The system also features are turn-to-operator (RTO) rather than a flow-through configuration, which reduces the machine's footprint and enhances productivity. It can be outfitted with an Abtex-engineered robotic system for additional productivity enhancements.

Abtex will also be demonstrating Artifex metal polishing and surface-finishing products as well as an assortment of its own silicon carbide, ceramic, aluminum oxide, and diamond-filament brushes.

Artifex is a German company with a distinguished manufacturing history beginning in 1924 for which Abtex is the exclusive North American distributor.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
