Saar-Hartmetall USA LLC, Covington, Ky., has installed and commissioned a Gerima LGA 3000 type III high-performance beveler at Shaw Modular Solutions in Lake Charles, La.
The beveling machine can apply up to 4-in.-wide bevels on large steel plates. While its table length is 10 ft., the machine’s C-shaped frame allows for processing of longer parts. It can apply top bevels of 0 to 80 degrees and bottom bevels of 0 to 45 degrees on plates up to 4 in. thick along the full length of the workpiece while minimizing heat generation.
Shaw Modular Solutions primarily fabricates and assembles structural, piping, and equipment modules for new nuclear power plants.
