PULIPROM NC - CNC Universal electronic polishing machines

In 1.985 a new leading polishing philosophy, based on programmable electronic polishing by numerical control, is born and applied to the PULIPROM machine.

For the first time, a polishing machine incorporates 6 programmable interpolable NC axes.

The PULIPROM machine is suitable for automating the polishing of parts with irregular configurations and complex shapes. The design and performance make it a machine of universal application with presence in multiple sectors, mainly the faucet and bathroom fitting industry.

The PULIPROM machine has developed over the various generations to incorporate the latest technologies and offer higher performance. The acceptance and success of the PULIPROM machines within the faucet and bathroom fitting sectors is evidenced by more than 100 machines being installed in worldwide leading companies of these sectors.

The PULIPROM machine offers significant advantages with respect to other polishing systems:

● Total polishing of the parts. Precision polishing.
● Uniform polishing quality without deformation of the processed parts.
● High production. Simultaneous polishing of four equal parts in each polishing cycle.
● Dual polishing cycle. As an option, possibility to polish and brighten two parts simultaneously in each working cycle.
● Flexible production. Change of series in the minimum time. The time invested in the preparation of the machine for changing the type of part to polish is about 10 minutes.
● Quick replacement of the fixtures without using tools.
● Quick replacement of the polishing mops without using tools.
● Cost-reduction in the amount of fixtures.
● Important reduction in mops and polishing compounds consumption.
● Polishing system avoiding excessive temperature of the parts during the working process.
● Quick and easy programming. Interactive MEPSA Teach System.
● High profitability and amortisation. One single operator can handle several machines by synchronizing the working cycles.

MRI NC - Rotary CNC polishing machines

The MRI-NC machines have been created from the experience and success of the PULIPROM NC machines, which is based on the concept of polishing by electronic numerical control programming.

The development of the MRI-NC machines represents a leading worldwide innovation with the integration of multi-axes systems in the rotary polishing machines, providing a new performance and polishing system.

In 1.989 for the first time in the world the work-holder spindles of a polishing machine with rotary table are controlled by programmable interpolable NC axes. The movements of each polishing unit are also controlled by programmable NC axes.

The application of this technology provides a new working system based on dividing the polishing cycle time by the number of polishing units of the machine, having the possibility to combine various finishing processes in one single working cycle.

The MRI-NC machines are suitable for automating the polishing of parts with irregular configurations and complex shapes. Their design and performance make them of universal application with presence in multiple sectors, mainly the faucet and bathroom fitting industry.

Thanks to the capacity for innovation of our Research & Development department the MRI-NC machines have undergone constant development in their various configurations to incorporate the latest technologies and offer the highest performance.

MEPSA has several series of MRI-NC machines with different models and numbers of polishing units based on the type of application and the sector they are destined for.
