ATI Industrial Automation released its CGV-900-compliant angle grinder as an automated alternative to grinding and finishing by hand. The tool offers built-in compliance, allowing the unit to compensate for irregularities in part surfaces and maintain contact with a workpiece. The compliance force is adjustable, enabling users to finetune finishing processes in real time. The tool also provides position sensing data to help indicate media wear. It is compatible with industry-standard grinding media such as flap wheels, sanding discs and wire brushes commonly used with handheld grinding tools. Target industry segments include metal fabrication, automotive, aerospace and general industry.
