Q-Fin at the Blechexpo, 5 till 8 November 2019
In the first week of November Q-Fin was present at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart. The Blechexpo was a great success, not only for Q-Fin itself but also for the exhibition organization which again broke some records. The success of Q-Fin was partly due to winning the Blechexpo award in the surface finishing technology category.

Blechexpo Awards 2019
Already for the fourth time, the “Blechexpo Award” was presented on the afternoon of the second day of the trade fair by “blechnet” trade journal in cooperation with event promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. The innovation prize was awarded to the most innovative exhibits in five different categories. With its MC 125 automatic stamping press, Schuler was the winner in the stamping and forming technology category. Kjellberg Finsterwalde Plasma und Maschinen won in the cutting technology category with its Q 3000 plasma cutting system. The winner in the joining technology category was Trumpf Laser- und Systemtechnik with their TruLaser Station 7000 – a 3D laser welding machine. The award for surface finishing technology went to Q-Fin Quality Finishing Machines for their SER600 Super Edge Rounder (a deburring and edge rounding machine). Last but not least, Cenit was distinguished in the handling and automation category for their cross-manufacturer cutting and joining software, namely Fastsuite Edition 2.
Q-Fin Super Edge Rounder SER600
The Super Edge Rounder from Q-Fin is a machine that deburrs sheet metal in one pass and provides the part with an edge rounding of R2, at a speed of 1 meter per minute. The SER600 is about twice as long as the regular F600 deburring machine in the Q-Fin range. This machine was specially developed for a radius 2 mm on steel products by means of five machining stations in the machine. The secret is mainly in the brushing principle, the way of brushing. The first two rows of brushes apply pressure from above. Brushes three and four work on the sides, the combination ensures the perfect rounding of 2 mm on a product.
