The SF1 ILS with chain loader is the new standard
in automated precision fi nishing. The machine
requires no expertise in robotics and is
designed for maximum user friendliness. Both
the SF and the chain loader are operated via a
control panel. It features a chain loader with 64
or 160 positions and can process different workpieces
in a single batch. Workpieces and collets
can be changed automatically as required. Processing
times range from 30 to 300 seconds,
depending on the process and workpiece geometry.
With a processing time of 60 seconds
per workpiece, the machine processes around
40 workpieces per hour. The SF1 ILS features a
lifting unit for the workpiece holder and is suitable
for both stream and pulse fi nishing in wet
or dry processing. All these features make the
SF1 ILS an extraordinarily effective and fl exible
machine. Ideal for processing small batch sizes
and frequently changing series.

Maximum workpiece diameter: 3 - 18 mm (more diameters are planned)
Maximum workpiece length: 150 mm (other lengths on request)
Depending on the finishing process and the tool geometry, processing times are between 30 and 300 seconds

reliably repetitive results and costeffectiveness
deliver a real competitive edge.
This fast mass fi nishing process ensures extremely
short process times, even with complex
shapes. Parts can be deburred, rounded, smoothed
or polished in a single work step. This process
also effortlessly achieves roughness depths of far
below 0.1 μm.
Rounding cutting edges
Rounding a tool’s cutting edge by even a small
amount like 15 μm can stabilise the edge and
ensure a perfect, burr-free geometry. This protects
the edge against breakages and signifi -
cantly improves both the service life and process
reliability of the tool.
With smoothing, the roughness of the surface
is reduced, i.e. the unevenness in the peaks
on the surface are removed. The benefits this
brings include reduced friction, higher contact
ratios and less wear. A further benefit is the removal
of droplets after PVD coating.
In addition to improving the appearance of the
workpiece surface, polishing also improves the
physical properties of the surface. A polished chip
fl ute on carbide cutters and drill bits can increase
the maximum cutting speed, for example, as well
as boosting coating adhesion. A polished forming
die will have a longer service life and lower friction

an OTEC SF, not only are you choosing
uncompromising German quality, but a secure
future too.With a comprehensive range of standard equipment,
optional extras and countless automation
machines help you scale your production.
You can increase operating comfort and process
reliability further with optional modules.
Immersion depth control, for example, controls
the immersion depth of the workpiece depending
on the process. It can be programmed either
fully automatically. Wet processing
machines feature a dosing unit that allows users
to adjust the compound concentration via the
Variant 1: Decentralised lifting unit
Here, all holders and workpieces are
immers ed simultaneously. This version
is mostly used with manual loading and
Variant 2: Centralised lifting unit
All lifting units are immersed individually.
One workpiece is changed while the others
are processed. This variant results in shorter
downtimes and is mostly used with automatic
loading and unloading.
