April 19, 2017 - Saar-Hartmetall USA has announced that their line of handheld, electric and pneumatic beveling tools can produce a variety of radius bevel edges including 2mm, 3mm (1/8 in.), 4mm, 6mm (1/4 in.) and 8 mm (5/16 in.). This includes the SMA-E and SMA-P series of portable beveling tools.
In the electric beveling tool line, the SMA-30E features a milling head design that utilizes dice-shaped inserts that have eight (8) edges that can produce straight bevels up to 3/8 in. at 30 degrees, 45 degrees or 60 degrees and 2mm, 3mm (1/8 in.) and 4mm radius bevels. The SMA-50E is a more powerful tool that eclipses the capacity of the SMA 30E by extending the straight bevel width to 3/4 in. and bevel angles from 0 degrees to 90 degrees. The SMA-50E can also create a 6mm (1/4 in.) and 8mm (5/16 in.) radius beveled edge.
The pneumatic line of portable beveling tools known as the SMA-P series includes three models for producing straight and radius bevel edges in carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum with unsurpassed accuracy and consistency. Depending on the unit, these tools can produce beveled angles between 0 degrees and 90 degrees and straight bevels up to 5/8 in. (3/4 in. for aluminum) and radii from 2mm to 8mm.
“Our line of handheld beveling tools is perfect for creating smooth, burr-free edges in applications where the product is painted or coated and may be exposed to environmental elements,” states Iwan Antonow, Executive Vice President of Saar-Hartmetall USA. “Our tools offer a full range of radii with a very smooth beveled edge for weld, coating or paint prep.”
