Since many years bathrooms and kitchens are fitted with water spouts, faucets and taps made of brass and stainless steel.
A complex industry has developed to manufacture and supply all these items in many shapes, colours and finishing to cope with customers requirements.
Main process still remaining problematic is bent taps polishing for which a special polishing machine capable of processing very bent narrow faucets is required, as the only other available solution could be the traditional buffing to be done by hands or in alternative through very expensive CNC operated or robotized buffing lines.
Actually planetary polishers like those shown on the attached video are the only alternatives for taps polishing as well as faucet linishing and spouts buffing both straight or very bent shaped ones; opposite abrasives belts rotate around the tube, careless to be straight or bent one, finishing the complete surface and shape of the faucet.
Taps finishing machines in different versions enable very narrow bent faucets finishing, water spout grinding and tight radius taps linishing.
This kind of taps polishing machines enable a fast, accurate and omogeneous faucets grinding, turning down labour time and relevant costs.
Recently fashion forced taps manufacturers to square shaped taps, requiring and even more accurate grinding and buffing; also for this specific kind of application a special horizontal grinding machine with belt oscillation has been developed to grant smoothness, sharp edges and consistent finish on these bathrooms fittings.
Belt polishing machines are also suitable for tridimensional shaped tubes linishing granting a uniform surface polishing and following any possible shape or bend on the item.
By choosing the appropriate abrasive belt mesh faucet buffing machines allow to reach finishing results very close to taps mirror polishing.
