Plate edge milling

To improve the quality of coatings in shipbuilding, IMO PSPC demands the preparation (rounding) of steel plate edges. Automation of this process requires an adaptive machine that perfectly follows plate contours. KRANENDONK’s Edge Preparation System meets this demand. Please refer to the product page for more information.
