Norak Steel Construction, Ltd. in Concord, Ontario, just outside of Toronto, recently commissioned the first Gerima KFM II plate beveler installed in North America by Saar-Hartmetall USA, LLC.

The KFM II is a medium sized stationary beveling machine that is perfect for industrial high-speed edge milling for chamfer or radius edges applications on straight plate or plate segments & weld coupons. Specially designed for high-volume production work, the easily understandable control panel for electronic control of feed and speed rates makes beveling and radius cutting efficient. Perfect for coupon size or long and narrow work pieces, this machine produces bevels widths up to 30 mm. The machine is suitable for various material types including aluminum, steel, fine-grained steel and stainless steel.

The first KFM II installation in North America by the Saar-Hartmetall USA team was completed on April 24, 2008 by Iwan Antonow and David Schreiner with help from Gerima electrician, Jens Stamm. Exclaiming the machine to be "very sturdy, easy to use..." Norak employee Joe C. gave our machine an enthusiastic thumbs up! (see photo below)

Saar-Hartmetall Executive Vice President, Iwan Antonow said, "We're excited because this KFM II is a stationary machine that works well for the American market as it is sturdy, easy to operate, easy to install. We experienced no glitches or tech support calls from Norak with this install in the initial 30 days. We were very pleased with the outcome."
