GS Parts from Groningen, The Netherlands, manufactures various steel parts in its own production location for building inland waterway and seagoing vessels. The ships are manufactured completely under own management, from design to the entire shipbuild in the shipyard.
GS Parts uses Beveltools radius heads for rounding sharp edges and small openings. “We are very pleased with the high speed with which we can make a rounded edge. By using the Beveltools cutters, you create a smooth radius instantly and in one pass. Rounding is completed quickly and that saves me many working hours”, says Erwin Klein, construction foreman at GS Parts.
The company started using Beveltools in 2015 and the beveling machines are still always kept within reach in the workplace. In addition to the high speed, GS Parts also mentions the benefits of the handy machines. Erwin explains: “the beveling tools are ergonomic and lightweight, milling costs little physical effort. In the past we also tried machines with carbide inserts. Machining was much heavier, the inserts often broke and the machines broke down quickly. After that, we started using Beveltools and we really experience the benefits of this quick, fast beveling concept.”
