Title (EN) POLISHING TECHNIQUE FOR FLEXIBLE TUBES
(FR) TECHNIQUE DE POLISSAGE DESTINÉE À DES TUBES SOUPLES
Abstract:
(EN) Various examples are provided for polishing techniques for flexible tubular workpieces. In one example, a method includes supporting a tubular workpiece on a rod that extends axially through it; positioning a turning wheel against an external surface of the tubular workpiece, where it is held by magnetic attraction; and rotating the tubular workpiece by rotating the turning wheel. The external surface of the tubular workpiece is polished by the abrasive particles during rotation of the tubular workpiece. In another example, a polishing system includes a workpiece holder including a rod configured to axially support a tubular workpiece; a turning wheel with abrasive particles distributed about an outer surface; a wheel support assembly configured to position the outer surface of the turning wheel against the an external surface of the tubular workpiece, where it is held by magnetic attraction. The external surface is polished during rotation of the tubular workpiece.
(FR) Plusieurs exemples de l'invention concernent des techniques de polissage pour des pièces à travailler tubulaires souples. Un exemple de l'invention porte sur un procédé, lequel procédé met en œuvre le fait de soutenir une pièce tubulaire sur une tige qui s'étend axialement à travers cette dernière; le positionnement d'une roue tournante contre une surface externe de la pièce à travailler tubulaire, où elle est maintenue par attraction magnétique; et le fait de faire tourner la pièce à travailler tubulaire par rotation de la roue tournante. La surface externe de la pièce à travailler tubulaire est polie par les particules abrasives pendant la rotation de la pièce à travailler tubulaire. Un autre exemple de l'invention porte sur un système de polissage, lequel système comprend un support de pièce à travailler comprenant une tige conçue pour soutenir axialement une pièce à travailler tubulaire; une roue tournante avec des particules abrasives réparties autour d'une surface externe; un ensemble de support de roue conçu pour positionner la surface externe de la roue tournante contre la surface externe de la pièce à travailler tubulaire, où elle est maintenue par attraction magnétique. La surface externe est polie pendant la rotation de la pièce à travailler tubulaire.
