CASTELLANOS y ECHEVARRIA (CEVISA) has now held its own on the market for more than five decades as a beveling machine manufacturer and prescribes the best sales figures. Cevisa offers mechanical chamfering solutions with low operating costs. The CEVISA machines are the most favourable chamfering solution. The cost per meter of bevel on the shearing machines is about 0.40 EUR, on the bevelling machine about 1.20 EUR. With flame cutting, the costs are 2.00 EUR/meter, with laser cutting far behind at 2.90 EUR/m.
The advantages of the CEVISA machines are cutting of all conductive materials, cutting thicknesses up to 100 mm, cutting of high-alloy steels, low noise, high efficiency, optimum material utilization, small kerf width, no thermal stress, cutting of thicker material thicknesses, safer for users and the environment, no reworking required, low operating costs, high cutting speed, low set-up times, no specialised personnel required, and no size restriction of parts. And the disadvantages are rough end result with roller shears; high specialisation, not applicable to other processes; limited material thickness.
