Perfect Radius on the Edge
Lightweight hand-held machines that round off edges quickly and precisely R2, R3, R4, and R5 through milling.
For perfectly executed varnishing, it is essential to round off sharp edges. This ensures the maintenance of a continuous layer of varnish, which is not prone to defects, as in the case of sharp edges. Such prepared varnish, for example on steel parts, can provide up to a 15-year guarantee.
Grinding these edges is possible, but impractical, uneconomical, and even environmentally unfriendly.
Milling edges with special cutting inserts is not only very precise and fast, but also, from a health perspective, more suitable for the operator. It does not create airborne metal dust, which the operator could inhale, but rather collects the chips. The speed of work and productivity is much higher, and precise rounding by milling is far superior to grinding.
The machines are available in several sizes and with both electric and pneumatic drives. Especially the very lightweight pneumatic machines with suitable ergonomic handling will be appreciated by the workers. Working with them is very comfortable and not tiring.
Radii on metal plates are made for several reasons:
Varnishing: A rounded edge guarantees the same thickness of varnish during varnishing, preventing cracking and peeling of the varnish.
Safety: Sharp edges on sheet metal can be dangerous for workers handling the metal. Radios help reduce the risk of injury.
Aesthetics: Radii can improve the appearance of a product or structure. Sharp edges can look unaesthetic and careless.
Durability: Sharp edges can lead to wear or damage to products that come into contact with the sheet metal. Radii can extend the lifespan of these products.
Mechanical Properties: Radii can improve the mechanical properties of the sheet metal, particularly its strength and resilience.
Overall, it can be said that radii on sheet metal have a positive impact on safety, aesthetics, durability, and the mechanical properties of the sheet metal and the products made from it.
