VECTOR

Abrasive Flow Machining by Extrude Hone

Precision Deburring and Polishing System

The VECTOR Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM) system is capable of polishing and deburring precision parts in small to high volume batch quantities for a wide range of application.

By end of 2020, 400+ VECTOR machines in 22 countries around the world, VECTOR is the best seller in his category.Benefit now from VECTOR legacy product latest iteration.

TECHNOLOGY

FEATURES and BENEFITS

AUTOFLOW™ Advanced Control

For maximum process control. The ability to control flow rate, temperature and viscosity also contributes to improving the life span of the abrasive media.

Media Temperature Management

Controlling the temperature of the abrasive media gives a more consistent machining rate.

Intuitive Operator interface

State-of-the-art control system for operation, monitoring, setup and maintenance with 12” Touch screen interface. Enables to save multiple processing parameters as required for ease of use and quick recall in the manufacture of multiple customer parts.

Options to increase productivity

Swing arms, hydraulic or manual ones, manual tooling carts, these are option that helps with heavy fixture handling.

LEGACY GETS BETTER

LEGACY GETS BETTER

No question, the VECTOR machine is the best seller in his category.

 

VECTOR – AFM Abrasive Flow Machining System offers a wide range of Capabilities in a reasonable space.

 

The VECTOR Series abrasive flow machine offers a broad range of process capabilities with a selection of media cylinder diameters ranging from full pressure 100mm models, to lower pressure 300mm versions.

 

As we use media cylinder kits. The customer would be able to reconfigure their machine media size easily later if needed.

 

The comfortable workspace features a 495mm opening, 900mm wide and 500mm depth while table height is 1050mm.

 

For operating convenience four rails are mounted on the tabletop. It make easier to slide fixture in and out.

VERSATILE MACHINE

VERSATILE MACHINE

VECTOR  is used for polishing, deburring and micro-deburring and radiusing applications.

 

Aluminum or plastic profile extrusion die polishing is certainly the most well-known application leveraging VECTOR capabilities.

 

That’s not all, VECTOR is used in various industries like, Aerospace, semiconductor, medical, energy and fuel system.

 

VECTOR is capable of AFM mass volume production like for solenoid valve in the fuel system industry, handling millions parts a year in a nearly fully automated set up in combination with blowing station and cleaning unit.

Slide VECTOR– AFM Abrasive Flow Machining System by Extrude Hone.
A legacy product latest iteration.
Slide The VECTOR Series abrasive flow machine offers a broad range of process capabilities with a selection of media cylinder diameters. Slide The Hydraulic Power Unit, the Electrical cabinet and eventually the chiller are set up together on a separate support for convenience. Slide Chiller unit installed on top of the Hydraulic Unit. Slide Standard rear process guarding Slide Optional front door and light curtain if needed. Slide The workspace features a 495mm opening, 900mm wide and 500mm depth while table height is 1050mm. Slide For operating convenience four rails are mounted on the tabletop. It make easier to slide fixture in and out. Slide Media temperature management options. Controlling the temperature of the abrasive media gives a more consistent machining rate. Slide 12’’ Touch screen interface for easy operation monitoring and setup. Enables to save multiple processing parameters. Media Volume management is built in to prevent short stroking, optimizing media and component life and the process cycle time.
Slide VECTOR is equipped with AUTOFLOW™ Advanced Flow Control.

The ability to control flow rate, temperature and viscosity also contributes to improving the life span of the abrasive media, reduces the complexity of the process and eliminates process limitations associated with in-line media cooling structures.
