Ficep UK has been appointed as the exclusive UK agent for Costa Lev, a manufacturer of automatic metal deburring and surface finishing machines. The machines are suitable for the deburring of plasma/oxy fuel/laser cut parts, the grinding of all flat, ferrous and non-ferrous metal parts, and the polishing of large metal surfaces.
When there is a mix of materials or a different finish is required, Costa machines have a patented system that provides flexibility, reduced downtime between changeover of brushes and easier maintenance, says the company. Depending on the edge radius required, vertical or orbital type brushes can be used, either individually or in multiple groups to ensure the required finish is achieved on the top or the top and bottom sides of the component in one pass.
Parts up to more than 400 mm thick, and more than 3000 mm wide, can be processed at feeding speeds of up to 50 m/min. Target application include the removal of slag, burrs and oxide, even when the parts are warped or uneven.
When polishing wide stainless steel sheets, the quality of the surface finish remains consistent as the machines automatically compensate for belt wear. This is possible thanks to an integral PLC that extends the life of consumables.
All machines in the Costa range exceed CE and OSHA approval, with noise reduction systems and special devices to protect operators and prevent parts from getting damaged.
