Fabricator Adds FINISHLINE to Shop Capabilities

Penn Sheet Metal, a Pennsylvania based sheet metal company, has added a FINISHLINE finishing and deburring machine to improve its secondary processing. This all-in-one finishing and deburring machine specializes in deburring, graining, surface polishing, oxide and slag removal and edge rounding.

Penn Sheet Metal provides roofing and construction, wall systems and manufacturing and cutting services to companies all over the United States. Its wide variety of customer needs led them to seek out a way to create uniform, repeatable products for multiple industries.

After many years of working together, Mike Roeder, President and owner of Penn Sheet Metal, reached out to Mid Atlantic Machinery to explore secondary processing solutions. Roeder explained the need for a machine that would automate their deburring operations and relieve his employees of hours of manual grinding, sanding and perfecting each part. "We really needed a machine to create uniformity and reduce time spent on edge rounding," said Roeder.

After careful consideration with industry experts, Roeder landed on a FINISHLINE FL5100 from Mid Atlantic Global. This 51" machine is compact in size, and utilizes intelligent design and quality components for finishing parts originating from laser, plasma, waterjet or punch processes. Features include quick-release adapters for top-brush units capable of handling 12 brushes, belt thickness compensation, small part processing, a swivel control panel and a complete HAZ 4800 dust collector with duct work.

Since the purchase of the FINISHLINE, Penn Sheet Metal has been able to cut its labor efforts in half, handle edge rounding, dross and slag removal easier and "take care of things we were never able to do," said Roeder. Penn Sheet Metal is now capable of producing more in less time with less labor.
