Portable metal deburring machines
The ROLEI® BE 5 from CS Unitec provides double-sided deburring of
metal sheets up to 0.2 in. thick in a
single pass. Two speeds enable fine or
standard deburring. Two abrasive flap
wheels rotate in opposite directions
to grind both sides of the metal. The machine can be used to
deburr large, thin sheets with standard 28-in.-long guide rail
The ROLEI model PEF 500 bevels with cross grinding and
no opposite burr. It has an infinitely adjustable beveling angle
from 30 to 60 degrees. Model EF 165 has a fixed beveling angle
of 45 degrees and adjustable land width from 0 to 0.375 in.
The model EF 115 hand-held deburring and faceting machine is designed for use on large, heavy parts such as machine tables and frame constructions. Precise edge control
helps ensure clean bevels at a fixed angle of 45 degrees.

Sheet metal CAD/CAM system
SigmaTEK has introduced SigmaNEST
X1, the new release of the sheet metal
CAD/CAM system, offering improved
functionality for CNC punch, laser, and
Shown for the first time was the new
Dynapack-HD nesting engine, which
handles multisheet nesting tasks efficiently for improved best sheet selection and overall material yield improvement, states the company.
The CAD/CAM system acts as a hub
or cockpit from which to integrate multiple machines, optimize production
schedules, reduce scrap, and shorten
cycle time through smart machine programming, according to the firm.
Pneumatic clamping for
modular fixturing systems
clamping options for its line
of modular fixturing systems for welding. By integrating pneumatic cylinders into modular
clamp bases, company engineers have
designed a hybrid system to support
repetitive jobs while providing the flexibility of a modular tooling system.
Because each configuration is different based on the type and strength
of clamping that is required, company
engineers work with each customer to
design a customized system. The engineers also can design locators to work
with the pneumatic clamping to handle
an almost limitless range of applications.
IronCAD has announced its 2016 product release, which the company reports
includes improvements for customers
working in the fabrication and assembly sector.
Sheet metal improvements include
a new sketched bend command, which
allows the creation of more complex
bending operations. Users can import
and use sheet metal data from customers or suppliers as if it were native to the
