Abrasive finishing solutions provider Timesavers is showcasing a number of new machines at Euroblech, the international steel processing trade exhibition. In addition to the new machines, the company is exhibiting the enhanced 42 RB Series.

Timesavers enhances 42 RB Series machinesThe 42 Series Rotary Brush machine can now add more value to steel processing businesses with a new ‘add-on’ underside finishing machine. This ‘add-on’ machine is placed in front of the machine, and serves to remove burrs from the underside of workpieces before they enter the main deburring process. Deburring can be done with one single pass, halving the time it previously took. The add-on machine allows the 42 Series to be more easily integrated into fully automated processing lines.

Not only does the 42 series offer improved deburring, rounding and finishing in one processing step, is also able to process a large variety of sheet thicknesses and metal types. This machine can deburr and grind small parts from 30mm to large parts up to 1600mm. It can also process a large variety of materials, including stainless steel, aluminium, zincor, zinc and laser film products.

The machine features a centrally installed and user-friendly control panel, and an automatic table opening of 0 – 100 mm. To ensure a perfect finish, the machine has a carousel rotating brush head which is equipped with eight brushes – four rotating to the left and four to the right. The frequency-controlled conveyor belt feeds at speeds ranging from 0.2 to 8 m/min. Window panels and a well-lit interior make it easy to keep a visual check on processing.

The brushes have an extremely long service life of approximately 3 000 hours. However, when brushes or belts need to be replaced, there is a quick replacement system for virtually uninterrupted production. To monitor feed status, the machine is equipped with LED beams on the infeed and outfeed, and the vacuum table has an automatic cleaning cycle.

Represented locally by First Cut, Timesavers offers machines for different finish requirements, and will run samples to demonstrate the required finish results accordingly. While the most common finish achieved by the Timesavers wide belt machine is the straight line or 'grain' finish for decorative or aesthetic purposes, some customers may require a random, circular or orbital scratch pattern. The component can be given a finish with the surfaces prepared for painting or for receiving a specific micro-finish.
