Polishing is carried out by a cutter hub fitted with diamond tooling. The cutter hub is mounted onto a variable speed precision spindle which rotates at 12000 - 20000rpm.
Feed tracks on either side of the cutter hub accurately guide the material over the cutter, which is fitted with our unique cutter cover to improve surface quality. A belt transport system feeds the material across the cutter at around 1 metre per minute, automatically compensating for different material thicknesses. Thinner panels can also be stacked together up to the maximum capacity of the machine.
The cutting process generates plastic swarf, which must be extracted from the machine using our 1525E Extraction Unit or similar.
The 1550 Diamond Edge Polisher is a floor mounted machine which will accommodate materials up to 55mm (2.125”) in thickness. The infeed and outfeed tracks are a full 1117mm (44”) in length, enabling panel sizes of up to 2000mm (78”) to be polished with ease. Each pass over the cutter removes 0.75mm (0.030”) of material, removing any imperfections in a long sawn edge. The 1550 Diamond Edge Polisher is supplied complete with a 1525E Extraction Unit.
