A company that provides a range of steel sheet products is using the Lissmac SBM-S series of machines from Surtech to remove burrs and round corners.

The machine removes burrs and rounds corners on both sides of sheets in a single pass.

A company spokesperson said: ‘We produce sheet-metal components for a wide array of customers, especially in the growth sectors of medical technology, pharmaceuticals and the catering industry where stainless steel is a must.

‘We have therefore placed great emphasis on processing stainless-steel sheet.

‘We further produce sheet-metal blanks to our customers’ requirements.

‘This includes an entire range of services, from simple pre-production and assembly work to finished final products,’ added the spokesperson.

After a trial period using the new Lissmac deburring machine, the company purchased it and integrated it into its production process.

According to the spokesperson, the machine features a sturdy construction and is simple to operate.

‘Employees quickly realised that the Lissmac machine deburrs parts in a faster, consistent and complete manner.

‘Before the installation, it took 10-20 minutes to manually deburr a specific part.

‘The same part runs through the machine at a speed of 4m/min.

‘Two counter-rotating abrasive belts deburr the blanks from the top and below in a single pass.

‘The patented belts consist of abrasive cloth flaps mixed with abrasive nylon flaps, brushes or pins, depending on the size and type of burr to be removed.

‘A softly shining surface can be obtained without removing material,’ said the spokesperson.

The SBM-S machine can handle steel sheet and plate with a thickness of up to 20mm and with a minimum length of 150mm.

The maximum working width is 1,000mm or 1,500mm.

The deburring and rounding of parts is particularly important in the medical technology industry.

Several of the devices, for which Surtech supplies sheet-metal components, are assembled in clean-room conditions.

They are handled with rubber gloves for assembly.
