Metal tubes that have been finished on Bewo cutting lines can be found in abundance in numerous industries. The automotive industry, for example, uses countless components whose quality of finishing is absolutely vital. Firstly, because length tolerance is a significant factor, but secondly because the components have to be marked. When deburring a metal product, the deburring machine processes the end of the tube using two brushes. In the case of chamfering, a precise edge can be applied after cutting. Length tolerance becomes more significant in that case. And very fine tolerances can therefore be specified.
Smartest solution for metal: chamfering or deburring with a finishing machine
During final processing, both ends of the metal tube can be deburred and/or chamfered. The process of metal deburring largely comprises removal of the sharp edges of a tube using a deburring brush. If more stringent requirements are applicable to the end product, however, then chamfering is also a logical choice. Chamfering is a more meticulous form of finishing. It is a slightly more expensive and slower process than deburring. While deburring can be carried out on some 7000 products per hour, it is less precise. One of the main advantages of chamfering is that it enables strict compliance with length tolerances. The last of the finishing options available is punching. Punching mainly involves introducing holes or defined edges the ends of the product for welding or anodising purposes. Holes are made in the tube by means of a punch nipple.
Innovative deburring of metal
A cutting line can be constructed in modular fashion. The innovative metal deburring, chamfering and punching processes are all part of this modular construction. The option of adding individual modules one by one therefore enables you to gradually extend the process.
