Abrasive Sanding Disc Life Cellular Testing System

A manufacturer of abrasive wheels required a uniquely engineered test system for life testing of abrasive discs. Creative Automation designed a custom test cell that combined numerous complex testing processes, integrated with multiple highly accurate data logging systems.

The Challenge: Accommodating a Complex, Multi-Parameter Testing Process

The manufacturer required a precise and reliable test system for testing the wear and service life of their abrasive sanding disc products. Due to the nature of the product’s use, a multitude of testing parameters, operating conditions, and other variables needed to be considered. We were tasked with devising a way to integrate and record all of these complex variables with a simplified turnkey system.

The Solution: Custom Test Cell with Complete Data Logging Capabilities

Creative Automation designed and fabricated a versatile test cell that enabled testing the sanding discs under a multitude of force, angle, and speed conditions. By monitoring parameters such as spindle torque, the rate of disc attrition was recorded, thus providing a flexible and accurate way to determine the service life of the products.
