Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING A FERRULE AND ASSOCIATED METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL POUR TRAITER UNE VIROLE ET PROCÉDÉ ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus for processing a ferrule with an abrasive element. The apparatus includes a first mount configured to secure the ferrule. A second mount includes a holding plate configured to secure the abrasive element. A controller is operatively coupled to the second mount for controlling the movement of the holding plate. The second mount includes a non-stacked multi-axis frame for moving the holding plate within a plane. The multi-axis frame includes a first stage movable along a first axis and a second stage movable along a second axis, wherein the first and second axes are substantially parallel to each other but provide for two-dimensional movement of the holding plate within the plane. A method of processing a ferrule is also disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil pour traiter une virole avec un élément abrasif. L'appareil comprend un premier support configuré pour fixer la virole. Un second support comprend une plaque de maintien configurée pour fixer l'élément abrasif. Un dispositif de commande est couplé de manière fonctionnelle au second support pour commander le mouvement de la plaque de maintien. Le second support comprend un cadre à axes multiple non empilé pour déplacer la plaque de maintien à l'intérieur d'un plan. Le cadre à axes multiple comprend un premier étage mobile le long d'un premier axe et un second étage mobile le long d'un second axe, les premier et second axes étant sensiblement parallèles l'un à l'autre, mais permettant un mouvement bidimensionnel de la plaque de maintien à l'intérieur du plan. L'invention concerne également un procédé de traitement de virole.
