10 Nov Oscillating Sanding Head for CNCs
GDP GUHDO is pleased to introduce a new CNC Sanding Unit (item CNC-Ag) for use on CNC routers and machining centers such as Weeke, Homag, SCM, Biesse, HolzHer and others. Made in Germany, this unit is ideal for sanding flat panels such as cabinet doors and furniture tops. It simply mounts to a standard tool holder (16mm shank), or, if the machine has an HSK interface then the shop can order it on a 16mm HSK Heat shrink holder, which is the preferred clamping system for optimum performance. (It’s shown here in a HSK 63F toolholder.) GDP mounts the sanding unit to the tool holder at no charge. The unit has a floating distance of 3.2 mm and a Velcro™ backed 150 mm (5.9”) diameter sanding plate. It is equipped with three different springs for presetting pressure (resistance). GDP says that until now, the only viable option for sanding parts on a CNC machine was an investment in a floating head aggregate. With the new CNC Sanding Unit, it is within reach of many smaller shops. GDP Industrial Tooling is based in Mariette, Georgia (800-544-8436).
