Orbital tube polisher for both straight and bent tube and bar.  Max tube diameter 50mm.

The Garboli LPC160 is the most popular tube and pipe polisher for finishing tubular architectural hardware such as aluminium and stainless steel door furniture.  The orbital sanding process was originally developed by Garboli for the sanding of cane furniture but it is now the number one process for sanding and polishing stainless steel tube & bar.  The LPC160 will sand and polish straight and bent tube with equal simplicity.  At the heart of the machine is a powerful rotating disc through which the tube or round bar is passed. Mounted onto this disc is a pair of abrasive belts which are powered by a separate motor, the belts can be adjusted to suit varying tube diameters.  When the abrasive belt motor starts the belts close in on the workpiece.  This simple construct allows for the tube to be moved in any direction and at any speed through the Garboli LPC160 machine.  

Options for the Garboli LPC160 machine:

– Variable speed control

– Fully manual feed.  Ideal for one off and complex shape sanding 

–  ADN Through feed. Powered feed rollers which can operate with tube from 5 to 50mm diameter. Simply move the ADN roller systems to the side when sanding bent tube.

–  Multi pass feed options. Garboli use the Siemens control systems to allow for complex multi-pass processing if required.

–  Fully automatic feed and tube capture systems for straight tubes.

–  Varying tube thickness.  The tube polishing system on the LPC160 is self-centering allowing for the feeding of tube of varying diameter through the polishing head

–  Bespoke build.  Garboli can make many options from fully automatic feed in and loading tables to simple through feed roller options.  

–  Wet or dry processing options

–  Wave edge or straight edge abrasive belt construction to ensure the perfect finish every time

Popular applications for the LPC160:

–  Aluminium and stainless steel door furniture  

–  Taps and faucets sanding and pre-polishing

–  bicycle frame sanding

–  Marine fixtures and fittings

–  Brass fittings

–  Smaller diameter bollards

–  Power steering rack refurbishing
