In an effort to to provide more and better information on the Loewer machines I will be putting together more video content. The hope is to provide a repository of information to help you with a machine you have or one you are looking to purchase. These will range from a basic walk around to single topics in more depth. I will do my best to get content produced and uploaded on a consistent basis and add to it topics presented as areas of interest. So if you have ideas for content you think would be helpful please feel free to share your suggestions. The videos will be on our website as well as Youtube to make it easier to find where you may be looking for it. So feel free to post comments or to let me know what you would like to see covered.
It is that time of year where the weather is changing and the holidays are approaching. It is also the season for machine shows and a chance to see what is out there and ask questions. We will be at SEMA #48129 and the Fabtech show #B7711 and welcome you to stop in and ask any questions about finishing. From simple bur removal to high mirror polishing we can help. We have increased our inventory of machines in stock so you will not be faced with months of waiting to get a new deburring machine on your floor. We have been hard at work refining the DiscMaster and are bringing an updated version of the machine to Fabtech. With quality of life improvements it is better than ever and will be powered at the show.
In today’s blog post we’d like to talk about the new rotary orbital finishing disc system accessory head from Loewer.
This new device allows users to do the work of a palm sander in situations where a palm sander would not be efficient. It creates a finish very similar to a DA pattern onto sheet metal.
For years, customer have been asking us for a machine that can produce a finish like a palm sander in a through-feed machine.
Why do belt sanders use more energy than disc sanders? Read on to learn more.
We’ve staked our claim to fame on our incredibly low operating costs, and in all of our cost of operation worksheets we discuss how much more expensive wide belt grinding machines are to run when compared to a Loewer DiscMaster. It’s worth understanding how the machinery works and why conventional machinery uses so much more electricity.
There are three primary factors that contribute to energy consumption; Mechanical friction from moving parts like chains, rollers, wheels, bearings and belts; friction between the abrasive belt and the part surface; and heat generated through the manipulation of the belt (which can be significant in some instances). Larger machines with more bearing surfaces and heavier parts create more mechanical friction.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been discussing how metal deburring machines from Loewer can help you reduce your cost of operation.
In this week’s blog post, we’re going to discuss the cost of graining sheet metal vs. the cost of buying – and then deburring – prefinished metal.
Once again, we’re going to turn things over to AM Machinery Sales President Tony McCue, who recently took time out of his schedule to talk about developments in deburring equipment technology.
As Tony notes at the start of the video clip below, there have been numerous changes in in deburring/finishing technology for the sheet metal industry.
Much of the clip is spent on deburring and finishing, and the Loewer DiscMaster machine. The discs in this machine have the same basic concept as the contact drum in other machines, but are designed to ride up over a part for better abrasive coverage.
You probably know basic deburring machinery technology. We would like to point out a few things so you can appreciate how the old technology is still being used, but improved upon, to provide better edge quality as well as savings on your manufacturing cost.
