Square/Rectangle Product Surface Finishing Machines
Formtek, Inc. is the exclusive North American distributor for Bossi s.r.l. of Abbiategrasso, Italy. The Bossi STQ series of machines provide inline or offline, external surface conditioning for squares or rectangles. The machine utilizes flapper wheels, Scotch-Brite or Tynex to acquire the specific surface criteria desired. One head per side is the general arrangement. However for faster lines, two (2) units or eight (8) heads (two heads per side) may be utilized. Several models exist:
|Application (Line Type)||Model||Range (per side)|
|TIG Welding, Laser or HF Welding||STQ/4U Mignon||0.393” to 2.000” (10 to 50 mm)|
|STQ/150/4UR*||0.393” to 4.000” (10 to 100 mm)|
|STQ/300/4UR*||4.000” to 11.811” (100 to 300 mm)|
* These models have special variants where motors are mounted externally vs. the standard variant which is internally.
Typically, these devices are installed INLINE right after the sizing or calibration passes prior to cutoff or OFFLINE in a separate operation.
