Product Details Supplier Info More products

Surface Technology Products (Surtech) has supplied a belt linishing machine and a friction deburring machine to Procut to help it eliminate a bottleneck in its production process that was delaying deliveries to customers.

Procut is a manufacturer of steel profiles for the manufacturing and general subcontract industries. After receiving a long-term order for 2,000 cut steel blanks per month, the company found that although its profiling machines could meet demand the hard slag that remained on the blanks as a result of the cutting process was difficult to eradicate.

The company turned to Surtech, which provided a belt linishing machine with large table for the cleaning of the parts and the removal of any scale and a friction deburring machine for removing the hard slag from the cut blanks.

Key benefits of product application

  • Chris Brown, general manager at Procut, said the friction deburrer and linisher from Surtech will pay for themselves in 18 months.
  • The production bottleneck has been eradicated.
  • The Surtech plant eliminates the requirement for two staff to hand-finish parts.
  • The friction deburrer is a fully enclosed unit with built-in extraction, eradicating potential respiratory issues and improving workshop air quality.
  • The belt linisher also has an extraction unit attached.
  • A quality surface finish is created with little or no further dressing, often removing any further finishing requirement for customers.
  • Brown said that the machines have enabled Procut to reduce lead times, labour requirement and costs while improving component quality.
  • He added that the machines have also improved the working environment.
