Awltech, who supply flame/diamond polishing, heat-bending and edge-bevelling solutions to the sign and display and plastics fabrication industries, has a new diamond polishing machine. Called the AMI-c, it has been developed primarily for the edge-finishing of acrylic and its plastic derivatives that are used extensively by these industries.
Available in a choice of two models with respective processing lengths of 2.1 and 3.1m, both machines will polish material up to a thickness of 120mm at 90 degrees and up to a thickness of 80mm at 45 degrees. Both machines will also polish bevels at up to 60 degrees.
The AMI-c diamond polishing machine has a number of new performance-enhancing features, optional processing tools and benefits. These include, as options: a tilting front stop that enables bevelled multiple sheets of material to be stacked and polished in a continuous cycle; and an integrated mop-like polisher that removes any film marks, scuffs and other surface imperfections before the material is removed from the machine. The AMI-c machine provides Ethernet connectivity to allow remote access to online technical support and help.
A range of diamond polishing tools is also available to accommodate different types of material and to provide a choice of finishes such as high gloss, gloss and matt. A brochure with full technical specifications and video links to enable access to machine demonstrations can also be provided on request using the address.
