Laser Metal Deburring and Edge Rounding Machine at Foekema

Foekema Plaatbewerking BV is a Dutch company specialized in metal sheet services and fabrication. The company which provides laser cutting, welding and engineering services has just purchased an innovative corner rounding machine from NS Máquinas.

DM1100 C stainless steel deburring machine
The need for a metal deburring machine was due to the increasing demand in the food industry, where customers like rounded and burr-free laser cut parts, both for hygienic reasons and also in order to eliminate the risk of injury with laser cut sharp edges. On the other hand customers demanded steel parts with rounded edges to assure better adhesion of powder coating and zinc layers. For these reasons Foekema decided to move on to the purchase of the NS Máquinas deburring and edge rounding machine DM1100C.

Mr.  Johan Foekema, managing director of the Dutch company, told us about his option. “After comparing different brands and models the NS Máquinas DM1100C was soon our best choice.”

“In contrast to other metal deburring machines DM1100C edge rounding machine may also process small parts, even dimensions of 25x25mm are feasible! This makes it possible to supply laser cut parts to our customers which are finished and edge rounded both on the outside and on the inside contours with the same surface finishing.  Many other companies tumble small parts which has necessarily a different look.”

One of the benefits that Mr. Foekema points is the fact that he can deburr steel and stainless steel parts with the same machine. DM1100 C has a simple and quick system for abrasives replacement. In less than 3 minutes the edge rounding abrasive cross belts can be replaced, being possible to interchange the abrasive tools for steel and for stainless steel. The manager points: “Both stainless steel and steel parts can be finished and deburred on the same machine. More it is a very easy to clean our metal deburring machine.”

DM1100 C stainless steel deburring machineDM1100C edge rounding machine can also deburr stainless steel laser cut parts with plastic foil, leaving the surface untouched. “Parts which were laser cut with film protection are not a problem. The film remains tight and the contours are rounded”.

The NS Máquinas metal deburring machine proves to be also the right choice for many steel parts. According to Mr. Foekema the DM1100 C is “ideal for parts that will be powder coated or galvanized, once with rounded corners and holes there is better adhesion.”

This metal sheet edge rounding and deburring machine has a maximum width of 1100mm and works up of 50mm thickness.

The DM1100C metal deburring machine has a cross belt edge rounding technology because the machine is equpped with two transverse belts. These cross belts have sanding blocks which consist of abrasive flaps with scotch brite. These abrasive tools are designed to provide the removal of the burr and edge rounding of the corners. At the same time the cross belts provide a nice finish, especially in stainless steel.

Regarding the investment on the NS metal deburring machine Foekema has no doubts and concludes “a relatively short operation time with low processing costs”.

DM1100 C: Stainless Steel Edge Rounding and Polishing of Laser Cut Parts

DM1100 C Laser Deburring and Edge Rounding Machine
DM1100 C is the ideal machine for creating rounded edges on metals parts with light burrs.

This machine is equipped with a double top cross belt with deburring abrasive blocks which work all edges of parts regardless its shape.

Before and After Edge Rounding with DM1100 C Machine
This technology provides a strong rounding action on parts cut on laser and deliver a high performance in any size of part, including parts as small as 50x50mm.

The action of the abrasive blocks, besides creating a perfect rounded and deburred edge, creates a smooth linear polished finishing. Having the possibility of polishing stainless steel laser cut parts with a very fine touch is great benefit on several applications where aesthetic is important.

Easy and measurable set-up of thickness and pressure and quick replacement of abrasive cross belts (less 3 minutes) are some of the extra benefits the DM1100 C deburring and edge rounding machine brings.

Edge Rounding and Polishing Stainless Steel Laser Cut Part
This product is available in 1100mm and 1600mm max. width capacity (models DM1100 C and DM1600 C) and can edge round laser cut parts but also other parts with light burrs such as parts cut on punching, shearing or plasma machine.

DM1100 ZC: Deburring and Edge Rounding in One Machine

DM1100 ZC: Deburring and Edges Rounding Machine

DM edge rounding machines are available with deburring station before the cross belts.

The soft contact roller Ø240mm can grind away burrs from laser and plasma, while the cross belts will remove sharp edges, rounding them with extreme efficiency. These machines can actually work parts down to 50x50mm.

The stations are independent. This makes possible the operation only for edges rounding (without abrasive belt) and only for parts finishing in a second step after deburring and edges rounding.

These models count with fixed working height, motorized control of thickness and cross belt pressure/wear.

The cross belts are positioned at 35º, which permits the use of the full width of conveyor belt. Parts will not be placed at an angle as it is done with DM1100 C. More, we can have a straight finishing after edges rounding if a 3rd station is required (abrasive belt or brush unit).

This machine is available in 2 sizes: working capacities of 660mm and 1100mm (DM660 ZC and DM1100 ZC).

DM660 ZPK Laser Parts Deburring and Edge Rounding Machine

DM660 ZPK Deburring and Edge Rounding Machine
DM660 ZPK is a deburring and edge rounding machine for sheet metal and parts cut by punching, shearing, laser or plasma.

Removing burrs and creating round edges using planetary brushes technology is possible on parts up to 660mm width and on some as small as 50x50mm.

Inside and outside contours of stainless steel, steel and aluminium parts cut by laser or other thermal processes are burrs cleaned from the total surface.
