Sandvik Installs RJH “Powerfin Vicuna” Bar Polishing Line

8 May 2013


Sandvik Materials Technology, a world leader in the development and manufacture of advanced stainless steel products, has recently invested in a major machinery upgrade, with the installation of a new “Powerfin Vicuna” bar polishing line at their Sheffield facility. The machine was sourced, installed and commissioned by RJH. This particular machine was sourced from Garboli Srl in Italy, for whom RJH are a UK agent.

The team here at RJH worked hand-in-hand with Garboli to supply the right machine to meet Sandvik’s needs, from the initial demonstrations and trials right through the design and customisation of the machine to the final commissioning and training. Sandvik is clearly a satisfied customer:

“….not only was the machine delivered ahead of schedule, but was installed and set up in a most professional manner. Our staff, after the training you provided, are now well placed to produce bars of extremely high quality and consistency….”

The Powerfin Vicuna is designed for the finishing of tube and bar in various materials, including plastics, stainless steel, brass, steel and aluminium. The range is extremely flexible and covers single-headed machines and twin-headed grinding lines, wet and dry versions, all available in a range of belt and motor sizes. The components can be straight, bent or tapered, with round, oval, elliptical or irregular section. More information, including specifications and videos, can be found on our orbital finishing machines page.
