Machines from Timesavers can be built to produce a variety of sheet metal finishes. Metal finishing is the last step in the manufacturing, that adds to the protection and aesthetics of the products. The most common finishes are decorative finishes as for instance a straight-line or a grain finish. These can be accomplished in finishing processes that use abrasive belts, Scotch-Brite belts and/or brushes. More information could be read in the knowledge base page about finishing.

The perfect finish with a Timesavers
Timesavers offers machines for every required finish. From the Manual Grinder, to the rotary brush machines, to the 81 series; all Timesavers machines have their unique finish capabilities. The finishes can be applied to a variety of materials depending on the machine.
Finishing of sheet metal products
There are several finishing techniques to get the perfect sheet metal surface finish that meets your surface roughness requirements. There is a wide range of finishes for stainless steels, such as the common 2d finish or a 2BA (Bright Annealed) finish that is made by brushes, or a No. 5 with a Scotch-Brite belt. The deburring machines can be equipped with a Scotch-Brite belt, to add a finish to the deburred products. When a non-directional finish is preferred, the rotary brushes are recommended.
Finishing of sheets
Every machine from Timesavers is able to produce a nice surface finish on sheet metal products, however, Timesavers has also designed three machines that are the ultimate solution for finishing sheet-to-sheet or coil-to-coil material.
This machine is the ideal solution for finishing of sheets that are produced by a cold rolling process. It ensures the best result for a stainless steel surface.
A smooth surface can be achieved with this wet ‘coil-to-coil’ line. Both, cold and hot rolled sheets can be finished by this machine. Because of the wet process, it can even handle titanium, molybdenum and zirconium.
This dry working machine produces a smooth finish on cold and hot rolled sheets. Depending on the type of brush and belt in combination with the right settings, no. 3 or 4 finish can be achieved.
