When it comes to developing and building brush deburring and edge honing equipment, René Gerber AG leads the way and has been a strong partner to its customers for over 60 years. Its main aim is to provide cost-effective and technically appropriate solutions - in the form of the perfect Gerber product for the relevant production scenario - that will remove sharp edges, obliterate unwelcome burrs and precisely hone edges.
Often, a workpiece can only be guaranteed to work properly once all burrs have been removed. What's more, workpieces wear out far less rapidly when they've been deburred. The preparation of cutting edges and surface brushing are also absolutely essential when trying to ensure coatings adhere well. After all, a good coating is completely useless if the workpiece it's being applied to hasn't been appropriately prepared or manufactured beforehand. Indeed, the kind of process perfection that today's "zero-error philosophy" demands in large-series production can only be achieved when processes can be relied on completely - and this is where deburring has a special role to play. René Gerber AG aims to ensure its customers can achieve perfect deburring, edge honing and polishing and has therefore tapped into its long-standing expertise in deburring to create the BS Power and BS Eco brush polishing machines. Driven by a planetary brush head, the brushes ensure that workpieces are uniformly and completely deburred and edge rounded as they pass by in a line underneath. The BS Power, with its wide belt, ensures a high output and processes valve plates with a diameter of up to 400 mm as they pass through. Its smaller sister machine, the BS Eco, neatly plugs the gap as an efficient and cost-effective solution for smaller quantities with a diameter of up to 250 mm.
