Edge prep processes have been shown to make cutting tools significantly less brittle. Polishing cutting tools' coatings and flutes can go a long way in improving cutting performance. With short process times, high-quality results, and the ability to extend tool life by as much as 300%, Bel Air Finishing Supply's (North Kingstown, RI) drag finishers are the ideal, all-in-one solution for cutting tool edge prep and polishing.
The company’s robotic AutoHone reverse drag/stream finisher provides the ultimate in precision, while requiring virtually no operator involvement. The six-axis robotic arm enables total control over part articulation, which is an important factor in any tool finishing process. This fully-automated system is also modular and customizable, with an optional ultrasonic cleaner and blow-dry station.
