How to produce a bias airway buffing polishing wheel?

What is Airway Buffing wheel?

The special air folded structure brings bias airway buffing polishing wheel strong cutting force, high brightness, fine finishing, can cool the workpiece surface at a very short time. Make airway buffing polishing wheel widely use on metal and non metal products polishing, such as wood, stainless steel, aluminum, copper etc. Involved in variety of industries: furniture, automobile spare part, hardware, building materials,etc. We can see a huge market demand on such kinds of polishing wheel. However, not everyone know how to produce such kind of bias airway buffing/polishing wheel.

CRA has been focused on manufacturing of all the process machine for making airway buffing wheel for about 15 years. Successfully cooperated with several abrasive materials factories. Below we’d like to share our experience on manufacturing bias airway buffing wheel.

Now,let’s dive in to learn how to produce airway buffing wheel.

1.Define your goal

It’s important to define the target kinds of airway buffing wheel you want to make. If you’ve been in abrasive business for years, make a statistical report or revisit your sales parameters by conducting market research each year is crucial to define your target kinds of buffs to be produced. Try to answer these following questions:

2.Get the right materials and tools

Once you have determined what kind of airway buffing wheel to produce, you can start to search the fabrics/sisal fabric materials and iron ring/plates tools in the markets. It is economic to get these materials locally. But if you can’t get the right things, CRA will offer some optional materials for you.

3.Get the right machinery

CRA has the full process machinery to produce airway buffing polishing wheel. Some of them are also workable for some process of other plane wheels.

Now, let’s explore how to make airway buffing wheel by our machines?

Step 1). Bias Fabric Cutting by CRA-500 Bias Fabric Cutting And Rolling Machine

As we all know, to improve the aggressivity and increase serve life of airway buffing wheel, It’s very necessary to cutting and rolling the fabrics or woven sisal to be 45°. These machine is specially used for preparing 45° diagonal fabric rolls (bias fabric) materials. Fabrics can be cut and rolled into both 45° diagonal fabric rolls or diagonal grain roll.

Paper tube for fabric: inner diameter 37-37.5mm, thickness above 2mm

Size :2850*1700*1550(mm)

Weight : 300(Kg)

Step 2). Forming By CRA-800 Bias Airway Buffing Forming machine

Unlike traditional manual forming way, CRA-800 is a full automatic CNC machine, high efficiency and precision. It is mainly constituted by hydraulic system, cutter, cylinder, pressure gage etc. Production is very high, maximum 5000 PCS per day.

  • Available for airway buffs from 200-600 mm diameter.
  • Available for materials of soft or harden treated fabric, sisal etc.
  • Available for almost all hot sale center,Iron claw 2 inch, 2.5 inch, 5 inch,  or Iron plate with round hole, hexagon hole.
  • Each control, full automatic, only need one worker to operate.
  • High production rate: Maximum 5000 PCS per day .
  • Interface and language in English.
  • Offer free training on machine and life time consultant.

Step 3). Pressing By CRA-600 Buffing Polishing Wheel Pressing Machine

After forming machine, it is only a half-finished wheel, as the fabric and ring still loosed. This kind of wheel can not be used to polish directly. To ensure the hardness, density, endurance of polishing abrasive wheel, next step will be pressing by this machine. After this step the fabrics are tight and iron claw will be fully closed.

Character of this pressing machine:

  •  Hydraulic(oil) pressure maximum 60 tons.
  • Ensure the density and endurance of buffing wheels.
  • Available for almost all kinds of wheels: cotton , sisal, airway buffs, nylon etc.

Step 4). Edge Cutting By CRA-700 Buffing Polishing Wheel Edge Cutting Machine

The last step of producing bias airway buffing wheel is Edge cutting. After this step it is a truly finished airway buffing wheel.

Character of this edge cutting machine:

  • Belt knife: made by imported materials, length 3150mm
  • Knife sharpener: made by 2 motors and adjustment rack, for sharpening the knife
  • Knife rest: made by alloy-steel plate, have enough intension and stability, ensure the verticality of cutting face between belt knife and the buff wheel.
  • Working bench: use for automatically feeding, adjustment of sizes of the wheel.
  • Mechanical transfer arm,Feeder,Pneumatic parts,Motor,Speed controller
