The Robo-Buff aligns golf balls to the seam so that the seam flashing can be removed by the buffing machine. It does so at a rate of 48 balls per minute with an accuracy of +/- 2 degrees. The orientation success rate is typically 99.5% which greatly improves seam buffing capabilities. Dimple patterns can be changed on the fly by loading the corresponding program so there are no mechanical adjustments needed with varying dimple patterns.
Allows for Improved Buffing Quality
Using machine vision, the Robo-Buff allows golf balls to be manufactured with smaller sprues. The reduced sprue size makes for a high quality seam since the seam buffer does not need to remove as much material.
