Levelling & Deburring
if you are producing sheet metal components or parts do you have a flatness or burr issues. There is a very simple and cost effective solution which is to run your components through a levelling a deburring machine. Now this may seem like an extra production process but lets consider on more detail.
We have noticed that many sheet parts are anything but flat. Flatter parts can make assembly and fabrication processes significantly faster, the performances are dramatically highlighted when robot welding is in place. A high level of burrs can impact on any manual handling operations within the factory, and also within other post production processes.
Different panels require different leveling systems. When processing large and thick metal plates and parts to achieve flat surfaces that and relieved of internal stresses. Machines designed to perform this process need to be efficient ( i.e. processing parts as quickly as possible) and reliable ( delivering the same level of flatness and stress relief part after part. Hydraulic plate straighteners are designed to provide rapid leveling with low internal stresses therefore minimising scrap.
- There are hydraulic steel plate straighteners specifically designed for rough steel panels from 4 mm to 40 mm thick
- Many can handle the large panels thanks to their 3,000 mm width bed , which also allows them to cope with the full spectrum of smaller sizes
- These machines are incredibly robust and can easily cope with rust and dirt on the steel sheet
Levelling and Deburring
Defining quality features of equipment for levelling and deburring include servo-hydraulic leveling gap control and overload protection which guarantees the same consistent leveling results and protection against damage. Easy cleaning of leveler machines is very important, especially when processing large plates which are often covered with rust and scale. Quality well designed machines are specifically designed for tough conditions. Make sure you identify a hydraulic leveler that is highly resistant to soiling and can be cleaned quickly and easily.
