The system is even more compact than before and simplified operation means there are even greater productivity gains. It eliminates tedious manual sorting of rings, body jewellery and other small and delicate pieces after deburring. This is achieved without the need for products to be magnetic.
Deburred jewellery pieces and media are loaded into the Aquasort tube through a funnel.
Water flow is started by pressing a foot pedal and controlled by a handle. The media separates from the parts and floats in suspension while the heavier parts sink to the bottom of the tube. Water flow is then increased to expel the media leaving just the jewellery in the tube. A simple quick release coupling allows the pieces to fall into the collecting bowl.
It really is that simple and quick. What is more, the process is environmentally friendly. Re-usable materials can be recovered and product separated in a clean condition, free from paste smearing or adhering residues. This makes Aquasort the perfect partner for Otec disc finishing and most other types of machines.
Aquasort needs only a single phase electricity supply and convenient water connection. With a foot print of just 82.5cm by 82.5cm the unit will fit anywhere.
Information on a full range of productivity enhancing machines that will allow jewellery manufactures to completely automate the deburring and polishing process is available from Finishing Techniques.
