Whether you want to remove burs using a multi-axis robot, cartesian robot, linear actuator, gantry system, or other automated equipment, RAD’s line of deburring tools will provide the answer.

RAD’s economical solution provides you with our air motor option (DT-A390). The DT-A390 provides variable speed and 360˚ of uniform radial compliance to accommodate part and path variations without requiring changes in robot orientation.

The designed-in flexibility allows you to use one tool for a variety of materials and burs – saving you money and programming time. Plus, each unit comes with a unique Mounting Saddle that is easily adjustable in your choice of 5 mounting angles and provides three commonly used ISO bolt patterns for even greater flexibility.

Your business relies on equipment that works. It’s just that simple. RAD Collision Sensors and Compliance Devices help you protect your investment and maximize the life of your systems.

RAD Ultimatic™ Collision Sensors mechanically detect when your automated system has encountered an obstruction, absorb the crash energy, and quickly signal the equipment to stop.

RAD Compliance Devices provide the system a little ‘give’ to compensate for fixture misalignments, positioning errors, shifting parts, and/or variances in part tolerances.

Chromalloy Nevada (a manufacturer of jet aircraft engine vanes and blades), was one of the first to purchase RAD’s C-8800 Heavy Duty 5C Collet Gripper. With 8X the grip force of the previously used RAD C-8700 Collet Gripper, the C-8800 allowed Chromalloy to increase their production 300% by enabling them to redesign their wax molds to hold three molds per tree vs. the original one mold per tree. 

Pick & Place Precisely on Either the O.D. or I.D. with RAD’s C-8800 Collet Gripper!

Rapidly Pick and Place your uniformly sized objects with a RAD C-8800 Collet Gripper! Unique design enables the collet to grip your part on either the outside diameter (O.D.) or inside diameter (I.D.). Pneumatically adjustable 360° clamping force enables rapid part transfer and allows efficient handling of a wide variety of parts from lightweight delicate parts to heavy more rugged parts. The C-8800 Collet Gripper can also function as a workholding device for grinding, deburring, or polishing operations.

When overall tooling payload is a concern in your larger robotic applications RAD’s Spring-Assist Collision Sensor can help! The U-4622-SA offers nearly double the payload of our standard model with no increase in size and an overall mass of only 13.5lbs!

RAD Collision Sensors provide crash protection and increased safety by mechanically detecting when the robot arm has encountered an obstruction, absorbing the crash energy and quickly signaling the robot to stop – thus preventing costly damage to your equipment and tooling.
