SHL polishing machine
Type P 1000 ROB

The SHL type P 1000 ROB polishing machine is engineered for deployment in robot grinding systems and its design takes into account the latest advances in polishing technology into account, with the use of polishing discs up to 1000 mm in diameter.

An SHL bus system is used to link it to the robot and integrate it into a functional whole.

The P 1000 ROB polishing machine takes into account the particular requirements of polishing machined workpieces and moulded parts – including extremely difficult contours from metal, non-ferrous metals, wood and plastics – with steplessly selectable polishing speeds.

Its compact form factor offers excellent freedom of movement for the workpiece. 

Particular design characteristics

  • Microprocessor controlled frequency converter for stepless control of spindle rotary speed
  • Digital display of the spindle rotary speed in the centre control panel of the SHL control cabinet – for exact setting of the speed level for the corresponding work area
  • An electronic polishing control circuit for automated tracking of the polishing disc as it wears down through use, to ensure that the contact point remains constant to a precision of +/- 0.5 mm. The contact pressure can be adjusted steplessly at the central control panel.
  • Automated speed compensation, which automatically increases spindle speed to keep the peripheral speed of the polishing disc constant as the disc diameter diminishes
  • Constant distance maintained between paste machine and disc, even as the polishing disc diameter diminishes
  • Automatic safety shut-off, which switches off machine operations on the polishing disc side when the side door is opened
