    If only everything in life were so smooth

    Whether it's deburring, rounding, polishing or brushing, Swiss company René Gerber AG is used to getting top marks from the industry for the micropreparation of cutting edges. At EMO Hannover 2017, the company is now unveiling its new high-performance BS Power transfer brush deburring system.

    The machine range from René Gerber AG includes machinery for precision deburring, edge rounding and polishing. The company is one of the world's leading specialists in the micropreparation of cutting edges for cutting and stamping tools. It has now plowed its years of experience and comprehensive know-how in brush deburring and polishing into the new, high-performance BS Power transfer brush deburring system, which is being showcased to visitors from all over the world at EMO Hannover 2017.

    The high-performance BS Power machine is equipped with up to two planetary brush heads and ensures even and reliable deburring and polishing of workpieces up to a diameter of 400 millimeters or on both sides up to 180 millimeters. Major burrs and the smallest contours are no problem at all. The brushing, polishing and deburring machines are generally used when flat workpieces with through-holes or pockets require high-precision deburring and defined edge honing in a narrow tolerance range. Surface roughness is also improved in this process, sometimes considerably. This technology can be used for a whole host of precision components where completely burrless and damage-free surfaces are vital, for example in metalworking for manufacturers of stamping, precision cutting, turning, milling and gear parts. The planetary brush heads developed by René Gerber AG each have three large brush units with a diameter of 260 millimeters, thus covering an application range of 570 millimeters. As the machines are universal, they can be used not only for deburring very fine workpieces with a thickness of around 0.5 millimeters but also for slits and boreholes down to a dimension of approximately 0.1 millimeters. Higher profile parts such as rotors, planetary gears and housings can also be reliably deburred using this technology. What's more, the BS Power machine has been designed to provide a quick and effective means of removing major burrs caused by stamping, lasering, milling or turning.
