STUDY CASES FOR POLISHING/BUFFING/BRIGHTENING

AUTOMOTIVE: ROBOTIC SYSTEM FOR THE POLISHING OF ROOF BARS

Robotic station for polishing roof rail. The process carried out is able to offer a 100% complete finish by eliminating the need for manual post processing retouches.

POLISHING/BRIGHTENING/BUFFING

Polishing is that surface finishing process that allows to obtain increasingly reduced roughness until giving the object a reflective effect, offering smooth and shining surfaces.

The polishing process can have a dual purpose:

 

  • Aesthetic polishing: for components requiring polished surfaces solely for their reflective and polished appearance. Components of this type are accessories for furniture, aesthetics elements for automotive and much more.
  • Functional polishing: dedicated to those components that due to their mechanical application require extremely reduced roughness. In this case polishing is required by their function. Typical examples are found in components for automotive.

Type of processing

Polishing process it’s a more delicate process than grinding, less aggressive abrasives are applied. Typically cotton wheels or brushes are used, Sisal or impregnating Tampico with solid or liquid compound.
The Arcos’ automated systems offer the latest generation of automatic dispensers for the dosing of solid and liquid compound.
