4-Axis Tower Style polishing machine for aircraft fuselage skin panels.
The polishing machine concept is based on a structurally reinforced TM module as the main axis with additional vertical and cantilever axes (Tower Style concept). The polishing head has an additional rotary axis for surface angle normalization; integrated polishing compound supply; force feedback control to maintain constant surface pressure; surface speed control; and polish wheel wear monitoring.
The working envelope of 13m x 4.5m x 1.5m accommodates polishing tasks for large contoured components.
Large trunnion table allows loading and unloading of part fixtures during polish operation.
