Karl Roll develops FlexJet HD for deburring & cleaning

With the new high-pressure water jet deburring system FlexJet HD, Karl Roll has developed an efficient solution for deburring and cleaning in one work step.

Deburring machined components is a challenge due to areas that are difficult to access. Karl Roll GmbH has developed the FlexJet HD series for these tasks.

The highly flexible and efficient high-pressure water jet deburring system enables deburring and cleaning with a water pressure of around 500 bar in one work step. The rotary table integrated in the treatment chamber of the new system with pneumatic connections for automatic workpiece clamping devices is designed for components with a diameter of up to 450 mm and a maximum height of 550 mm.

For a precise and reproducible result, the workpiece can be rotated during the process as required and moved along the X-axis. This possibility of very targeted processing not only reliably removes adhering chips from areas that are difficult to access, but also detaches and removes clamping chips, welding beads and layers of scale. The system thus ensures optimal results even with geometries and contamination where classic processes reach their limits. The high kinetic energy also removes stubborn contamination such as sweat residues and silicates.

The FlexJet HD enables the increased demands on particulate cleanliness to be met efficiently and stably. Tests can be carried out in Karl Roll’s technical center from October 2021.
