Aluminum Finishing

beauty 545CDMC commissioned and built to apply a brushed finish to aluminum sheets, which are later punched and stamped into their final shape as front-load washing machine doors.

The output requirements were fairly small in scale, which made an operator loaded machine the perfect solution. Sheets are loaded by hand and the machine handles the rest. The sheet is automatically advanced and trapped by stops. A vacuum table secures the sheet as the brush platen lowers to contact it. For this application, a brief 4 second cycle time was chosen.

The brush platen is fitted with six 4” nylon disc brushes. This is a simple and effective machine which addressed our customer’s needs exactly. To see how this machine is utilized see our case study.
