Good and accurate rounding of steel constructions according to EN 1090, ISO 12944, ISO 8501 or IMO PSPC is becoming more and more important in the metal working industry. Rounding edges with minium radius 2 mm is a necessity for good adhesion of coating or paint to protect against corrosion. It is becoming increasingly obvious that this is not the most suitable job for grinding discs and flap discs. Especially not for rounding smaller openings.
Create a smooth rounded edge on metal in one pass
Smooth and even rounding is essential whether you need to comply with the regulations EN 1090, ISO 8501, ISO 12944 or IMO PSPC. The radius cutters from Beveltools create a uniform rouned edge in one pass. The rounded edges provide a larger bonding surface for galvanizing, paint and coatings. This reducing the risk of peeling and rust/corrosion. Additionally, cable feed glands are not required any longer to prevent chafing when feeding through cables, wiring and/or piping.
Fast and flexible
The Beveltools beveling machines are ergonomic, making it easy to get them to the metal. As a result, rounding small openings from a diameter of 5/8” (16 mm) becomes child’s play. The compact design of the Beveltools concepts introduces unprecedented flexibility in rounding metal pipes and sheets.
Machining without sparks or dust
Because of the reduced-sparking machining, hardly any heat is added to the material. The machines are light-weight and create the required rounding almost without vibrations. As the bevel heads cut through the metal, the splinters are large and heavy, and immediately drop to the ground. No hazardous dust particles and/or combustion gases are released.
No finishing and no discoloration
When using a flap disc or grinding disc for rounding metal, it is often necessary to file away all the impurities and splinters. When using Beveltools machines, the result is immediately smooth, perfect and consistent. There is no need for finishing, which saves a lot of time.
The fastest way for rounding metal
Because of the regulations for protective coatings, metal constructions must have a uniform radius. This is why the Beveltools team of specialists has developed two unique concepts. These concepts guarantee fast and consistent rounding, regardless of whether the job involves an R2, R3, R4, R5, R6 or R8.
|Bevel Mate® concept||Bevel Mite® concept|
|Rounding holes, between 5/8” – 7/8” (16 – 22 mm):|
|Rounding holes larger than 7/8” (22 mm):|
|You have many meters of metal that require rounding:|
The powerful, ergonomic Bevel Mate® concept is highly suitable for more heavy-duty machining and larger projects that require a lot of rounding. With Bevel Mate® you can make rounded edges from radius 2 mm up to radius 8 mm.
The Bevel Mite® concept is compact and lightweight. Specially designed for quick rounding of sheets, pipes and holes. With Bevel Mite® you can make rounded edges in radius 2, 3 or 4 mm.
Beveltools has solid carbide cutters for a wide range of metals. Every type of Beveltools bevel heads has its own characteristics, making them more or less suitable for certain types of metal. Simply change the bevel head to create a different angle or radius, or to bevel a different type of metal. Changing the bevel head only takes a matter of seconds.
For the best end result, it is highly important to choose the right bevel head that is the most suitable for the job at hand. The diagram is a guide for making the right choice.
