Partnership between Q-Fin and LVD
Machine builder Q-Fin Quality Finishing Machines from Bergeijk started a cooperation with LVD, the Belgian manufacturer of machines and software for sheet metal working. The LVD sales people will actively offer Q-Fin deburring, edge rounding and finishing machines together with their press brake and laser cutting machines; they will become part of the LVD package.
The cooperation will be visible to the market for the first time during the open days of LVD in Gullegem on 3 untill the 5th of December. An Ultimate Set of Q-Fin (a F1200 deburring and grinding machine for sheet metal parts up to 1200 mm wide, a F200 XL for sheet metal parts from 10 to 200 mm wide and a WES6000 wet-operating extractor) and two table grinders will be demonstrated in the Experience Center of LVD in Gullegem, Belgium. Q-Fin employees will be present for explanations and demonstrations. Before the start of the technology days the first LVD sales employees will have been trained in Bergeijk. The Q-Fin machines will remain permanently in the Experience Center for demonstrations. They are a pilot project. If the experiences with this are positive, the cooperation will be extended outside of Belgium.
LVD sales people will be trained on the Q-Fin machines and they will be given a place in the brochures of LVD. “The market is ready for package deals with a laser cutting machine and a grinding machine,” says LVD BeNeLux Managing Director Francis Vanneste. “Especially among customers who want to invest in an efficient cutting process, we see a demand for solutions for rounded and burr-free cutting parts. We are now able to meet this demand in a good way with the Q-Fin machines. We are convinced of the quality of these machines and can sell them flawlessly with our lasers.” Q-Fin’s director/owner Anton Bax also welcomes the partnership: “The fact that a major manufacturer of sheet metal working machines with an excellent reputation in the market and a worldwide sales network will be working with us offers enormous opportunities.
On the Q-Fin stand at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart, LVD CEO Carl Dewulf and Q-Fin director/owner Anton Bax confirmed their cooperation.
The collaboration between LVD and Q-Fin was established shortly before the Blechexpo in Stuttgart. On this international exhibition Q-Fin presented the Super Edge Rounder SER600. This machine won the Blechexpo Award in the Surface Technology category. The jury praised the machine for its speed and the quality of its finish. The winning machine can deburr sheet metal in one pass and round the edges at R2. This can be done at a speed of 1 meter per minute.
