BM16 Portable Beveling Machine

The Steelmax BM16 is a light weight portable beveling machine for use on flat, curved or rolled plate. It can also perform OD and ID bevels on pipe, including deburring, and can chamfer and countersink holes with a minimum diameter of 1-9/16″ (40 mm). Interchangeable bevel milling heads, utilizing indexable carbide inserts, are available for bevel angles of 22.5°, 30°, 37.5°, 45° and 60°.  A radius milling head is also available with indexable carbide inserts to radius plate edges with a perfect 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm radius.

The BM16 is equipped with a simple bevel depth adjustment, overload protection and electronic speed control for use on a variety of materials, including steel and aluminum. The BM16 is highly efficient for edge weld preparation and for producing radiused plate edges for optimal paint and coating adhesion. The compact design makes the BM16 an excellent tool for many fabrication applications
