Edge finishing

Edge finishing is a collective term for several operations whose purpose is to provide an attractive finish to the edges of metal sheets. Reasons include aesthetics, safety as well as functionality. At 247TailorSteel, you can choose from edge rounding and edge breaking. These are two metal finishing techniques that are very similar, yet each leads to a different end result.

The edge finishing technique edge breaking

Edge breaking is an optional post-processing in which a metal sheet is given an attractive finish. However, the edges are not rounded. It merely involves removing the sharp edges created by the burr after the cutting process. This technique for edge finishing is also called silken or deburring. Edge breaking is possible for steel, stainless steel and aluminum. With steel, both sides of the sheet are deburred as standard. With stainless steel and aluminum, you can choose single-sided or double-sided edge deburring.

The edge finishing technique edge rounding

Edge rounding, like edge breaking, is a process that removes sharp edges from metal sheets. However, edge rounding goes a little further than edge breaking and includes rounding the corners of the sheet metal. Edge rounding is an optional finishing operation that you can opt for in addition to laser cutting. Especially for products to be coated or lacquered, edge rounding is very important because it creates better adhesion. Edge rounding can be applied either on the burr side or on both sides.

* Edge rounding is now selectable in Sophia® for Web for Steel thicker than 5 mm
