Six Degrees of Freedom Robotic Motion
VDK1000 Robotic Ring Polishing System unit that creates multifaceted advantages within an existing precious metal ring manufacturing process. VDK1000 is a part of a new technology that radiates its benefits throughout the manufacturing system.
Advantages of VDK1000 Robotic Ring Polishing System
A flexible piece of robotic equipment with over 30 ring-style dependent adjustable parameters all intended to provide maximum production quality and production optimization. Designed to mimic all manual operator motions on the jewelry polishing wheel thus it is capable of copying in an one-to-one ratio any technology that is currently
used on specific ring shanks. System accepts standard polishing wheels and rouges thus enabling inside/outside multi-stage polishing processes that again may be dictated by a type of metal processed and/or required manual technology. The VDK1000 Ring Polishing offers controlled and consistent rouge application thus minimizing considerably after-process washing requirements. The unit features an open architecture system, meaning that almost all software and/or hardware modifications are possible in order to ease the integration process following specific customer’s needs. This automation system does not take any pauses during operations thus its performance advantage becomes stronger over time in absence of: a) lunch, b) wash, c) bathroom, d) logistic and other breaks. Thus, VDK1000 operates 8 hours during a shift short of normal attendance times that are also very small. This jewelry polishing solution processes customer’s high quality production standards for gold, silver, and/or platinum rings
VDK1000 is the first in the world Flexible Robotic Environment (FRE™) high-tech piece of machinery dedicated towards ring polishing bringing structure and indirect/direct benefits to the existing, normally manual, manufacturing.
