A radius is created on the edge of the metal during edge rounding of metal products. This ensures that the sharpness of the edge is removed and it is given a uniform rounding. Timesavers offers perfection in edge rounding with a radius of up to two mm in a single pass. More information about edge rounding could be read in the knowledge base page about edge rounding machines.

Perfect edge rounding up to a radius of 2 mm
Timesavers edge finishing machines
We have developed machines that produce perfect edges in a much faster and more consistent way compared to the process of manually deburring edge. Timesavers has a wide range of deburring and edge rounding machines that can be categorized by the following sheet metal edge finishing operations:
Machines for edge breaking
The machines that only break edges of the sheet metal are using discs and/or rollers. In addition to edge rounding, it is possible to deburr and finish the product as well.
Machines for edge rounding
The rotary brushes (RB) are the best solution for edge rounding. These brushes are also used for surface finishing, considering it leaves the product with a non-directional finish. When zinc-coated parts are run through the machine, the brushes can be set in such a way that the surface remains unharmed.
Machine for edge rounding up to a radius of 2 mm
The 42 RB series is the only machine that can round the edges of sheet metal up to a radius of 2 mm, because it is equipped with 8 brushes.
