AFTER over a decade of trouble-free service the Suhner Rotofera has earned a name for itself in Australia as the rugged, all-purpose abrasive and polishing unit.
It is suitable for a range of assignments including steel fabrication, polishing shops, sheet steel assembly, kitchen equipment fabrication, stainless Balustrading finishing and in numerous other applications which demand power, versatility and reliability.
Suhner is again living up to its role as a leading specialist in flexible-shaft machinery with the introduction of an entirely new generation of equipment - the Rotomax 1.5 - a single phase fully electronic system.
This new engineering design retains the specific properties of the Rotofera, such as separating the drive unit and the tool, giving the user a powerful drive without having to hold a heavy tool.
The lightweight tool holders make for delicate and fatigue-free work wherever high power levels are needed – even in locations with restricted accessibility.
The output features on-off control and infinite speed regulation delivering exactly the right speeds for a wide variety of tasks.
Power supply is a single phase induction motor, which produces whisper quiet 1500W of power.
A comprehensive range of tool holders, attachments and abrasives rounds out the machine to create a complete processing system.
A keypad on top of the housing makes selecting the desired speed both quick and easy. Electronic speed ranges from 500rpm to 15,000rpm in 100rpm steps.
The electronics regulate gentle starting and, engaging the built-in brakes, achieve a very short run-out period.
The unit develops 1.5kW of power, ensuring superior performance at all speeds.
The unit can be supplied as a hanging model, ideal for wet environments or where the user wishes to keep the shaft above the work. A specially designed stable trolley for portability around the work shop is also available.
