  • Offer Profile
  • TIMESAVERS specializes in a broad selection machines for grinding, finishing, precision grinding, and deburring metal plates. In some cases this involves removing as little as a few microns from the surface of the material with great accuracy. In other cases, it may mean taking away anything up to several millimeters from a plate all at once. And nowadays the company operates from three facilities - one in Minneapolis in the USA where the majority of the company’s woodworking machines are still constructed, Goes where the medium duty, heavy duty and special metal machines are made, and Taiwan where standard machines are built.
Product Portfolio
  • Deburring machines and wide belt grinding machines

  • Our metal grinding machines are built with your needs in mind. Timesavers has the solutions for customers who require a machine that can deburr, precision grind, round the edges with the highest quality and most beautiful finish. This is applicable to a variety of different kinds of metal, such as copper, aluminum, stainless steel and mild steel. We know different applications require different approaches, and nobody offers a wider variety of solutions than Timesavers.
      • Solutions

          • Deburring

          • If your process or machines shear, plasma cut, water jet, punch, laser, or mill, you’ve got burrs. What are the Industry Standards for Deburring?
            As of now, there are no industry standards for deburring. So the only standard is your standard. To some, a part is considered deburred when the vertical burr is removed. To others, a part isn’t fully deburred until the edge of the part has a radius. With thousands of machines in service and decades of experience, we can design a system that will meet YOUR standards.
          • Finishing

          • Widebelt machines from Timesavers can be built to produce a variety of finishes.The most common finish is a straight-line or grain finish for decorative purposes. These can be accomplished using abrasive belts or in some cases the desired result may require both abrasive belt and brush heads. Other purposes for finishing include preparing surfaces for paint adhesion and achieving a specific micro-inch finish.

            The perfect Finish with a Timesavers
            In other instances the desired finish may be a random, circular or orbital scratch pattern. Timesavers offers machines for each of the above requirements and will run samples to demonstrate results on your product.

          • Edge Rounding

          • Deburring with an abrasive belt removes vertical burrs but sometimes results in lateral burrs or sharp edges. Timesavers offers a variety of approaches to remove lateral burrs and soften edges, including soft drums, oscillating brushes, rotary discs and rotary brushes. This can include all actions to break the Edge of a part, but is mostly associated with the creation of a radius to the Edge of a part.

            The Timesavers 42 Rotary Brush Series
            The 42 Rotary Brush machine attacks lateral burrs from every angle which makes a radius on all edges and virtually eliminates lateral burrs. This is more of an Edge rounding than just removing the sharpness / deburring. A radius of 2.0 is achievable without specific requirements.

          • Precision grinding

          • Precision grinding also called calibrating is the use of a widebelt to reduce the thickness of a component to a fixed dimension. This often requires a slow conveyor speed or a reciprocating table with high horsepower per inch of sanding belt, hard sanding rollers, high abrasive belt speeds and coarse grit abrasive belts. The 81 series of Timesavers can remove material up to 0.02 mm.

            Milling with a cutting tool is the fastest and least expensive way to calibrate, but the finish is often too rough. Stone grinding provides an excellent finish, but is slow and expensive. Precision grind with a widebelt machine typically has a cost closer to milling but a finish closer to stone grinding, making it an excellent alternative.

            This process removes the exterior oxide layer/skin and grinds the material much like a surface grinder - but much faster, with less energy, over the full width, only using a wide belt abrasive. All this resulting in low operational costs. Timesavers will run samples to demonstrate results on your product.

          • Heavy slag Removal

          • Heavy slag is produced during thermal cutting operations: Oxy-Fuel and Plasma Cutting. High Definition Plasma Cutters and Lasers should not produce enough dross to fall into this category.

            Heavy slag Removal with a innovative solution of Timesavers
            For this application Timesavers has developed a special machine execution for the 12, 22 and the 42 series, which takes care of your heavy slag.

          • Laser oxide Removal

          • Timesavers offers a wide range of deburringmachines that also can remove your Laser oxide. Timesavers developed in the beginning of 2016 a new brush to remove the laser oxide skin from laser-cut steel.

            This brush is to be used in the 42 series of Rotary brush machines, combining the excellent edge rouding and deburring results of the machine with the required oxide skin removal, both from the interior as well as exterior contours ot the product.

        • Metal grinding machines

        • Our metal grinding machines are built with your needs in mind. We know different applications require different approaches, and nobody offers a wider variety of solutions than Timesavers. To satisfy your needs, it is important that you find the right machine: including the number of heads, type of heads, wet-vs-dry, abrasive selection, etc.
            • The 81 series Timesavers solution for Precision grinding

            • A precision grinding machine is also called a Calibration machine. The 81 series is the largest Timesaver machine we offer; using a reciprocating bed, high horsepower, and manufactured in The Netherlands. This machine uses wide belt coated abrasives to hold very tight tolerances; and is regularly used to precision grind titanium, molybdenum, stainless steel, aluminum nickel alloys, and carbon steel with an accuracy of +- 0,02 mm by using coated abrasives.

              Each machine is custom built to your specifications

              The precision grinding or calibration is performed with the use of a wide belt abrasive to reduce the thickness of a component to a fixed dimension. This often requires a slow conveyor speed or a reciprocating table with high horsepower per inch of the sanding belt, hard sanding rollers, high abrasive belt speeds, and coarse grit abrasive belts. Milling with a cutting tool is the fastest and least expensive way to calibrate, but the finish is often too rough.

              Precision grinding with the 81 series has lower operational costs than the more traditional stone grinding. Stone grinding provides an excellent finish, but is slow and expensive. Precision grinding with a wide belt machine typically has a cost closer to milling but a finish closer to stone grinding, making it an excellent alternative. Timesavers will run samples to demonstrate results on your product.
