"The introduction of the Beveltools made a world of difference to our production processes. Thanks to this machine, we can now apply aesthetically pleasing radii to our edged parts. This is an effective method to meet the requirements to safely operate Cobots, while making the Cobot robots look nice."

Goodspeed Steelshop is working on the production of a Cobot robot designed to place boxes on a pallet at the end of a production process. The manufactory of the Cobot robot uses laser-cut and edged parts that cannot be CNC cut in one piece. It is essential to provide these parts with a radius, which proved challenging with conventional methods.

Previously, it was not possible to provide all parts of the Cobot robot with the required radius due to the complexity of the shapes. The solution had to be both aesthetically pleasing and functionally within safety standards, with specific requirements for working with stainless steel and achieving a radius of R4.

The Beveltools cutters and machines were introduced to address this challenge. Beveltools made it possible to apply the required radius to laser-cut and edged sheet metal parts. Beveltools is used to machine various angles on the sheet metal parts and apply the desired radius. With follow-up machining, the parts are trimmed with a fibre disc and then finished with a eccentric rotary sander to ensure a tight finish. The final finish is a glass bead blasted for the desired aesthetic appearance.

Using the Beveltools cutters provides an aesthetically pleasing finish with an accurate radius, essential for the safety and appearance of the Cobot robot. The solution saves significantly on production time and avoids the need to switch to solid cut boards, which would be more expensive and time-consuming. The machine is specifically adapted to work with stainless steel, which is a key material for the Cobot robot's production.

Goodspeed Steelshop expects the Beveltools machines to be of great value in future projects as well. Work is underway to create new applications and models within the Cobot robot line, where Beveltools will play an important role in ensuring the quality and aesthetics of the products.
