This video demonstrates a water-jet cut stainless steel part using an Apex Model 1375MW-DDDD wet metal finishing machine. This machine allows for deburr and edge radius of inside and outside profiles. This 4-head machine is equipped with four separate abrasive belt heads that allow for a #4 up to a mirror finish on stainless steel parts in a single pass.
This video demonstrates graining, cleanup and edge rounding of steel parts using an Apex Machine Group Model 1975MW-DDP Belt, Belt, Planetary Disc machine. This 3-head machine is equipped with two abrasive belt heads followed by a 3-station rotating abrasive disc station. It utilizes wet operation which minimizes dust and keeps thin parts cool as they are processed. An air-knife dryer with squeegee rolls on top and bottom at rear exit of machine dries the parts as they leave the machine.
