METALCASTING SUPPLIES


Deburring Machine A new spiral-bottom, round-bowl deburring machine


from Almco Inc. offers a full-circle baffle that keeps parts in the media mass moving constantly and a 24-cu.-ft. (0.68-cu.-m) tub that can accommodate large and small castings. The SBB-24 can lift and move many different parts over the separating dam without causing them to


jam or collide on the screen. Its separating screen sur- face is longer than other round-bowl designs, permit- ting faster separation of parts and machine unloading. Overall machine dimensions are 96 x 82 in. (2.4 x 2.1 m), excluding the electrical control box. Visit www.almco.com for more information.


Shakeout Drum General Kinematics’ Vibra-Drum sand and casting


shakeout system removes sand and tramp metal without damaging castings. It also reduces sand lumps to original grain size and equalizes shakeout sand temperature in one continuous, energy-efficient operation. The Vibra- Drum system’s two-mass vibrating drums handle up to 400 tons per hour with non-rotating motion, so it does not require air handling or sealing nor experience in- terface problems.

Industrial Robot ABB Robotics has expanded its line of mid-range


robots with a new 26.5- to 44-lb. (12- to 20-kg) robot family. The IRB 2600 robots are suitable for machine tending, material handling and arc welding, as well as other process applications. The new robot range can be mounted on the floor, wall or shelf, inverted or tilted, which helps reduce floor space and increases access to the equipment being served. A Foundry Plus 2 version of this robot range is available. Visit www.abb.com/robotics for more information.
