20120039682ONE-TOUCH CHAMFERING-AMOUNT ADJUSTMENT DEVICE FOR A CHAMFERING MACHINE - The present invention relates to a one-touch chamfering-amount adjustment device for a chamfering machine which specifically carries out a chamfering process on the welding bead surfaces of objects to be processed (such as metal sheet materials and pipes). In the present invention, the moment after a chamfering-amount-adjustment piece has been manipulated so as to rotate, a position-setting pin is inserted into a securing recess in the chamfering-amount-adjustment piece and as this happens the chamfering amount is precisely adjusted in units and at the same time locking to the predetermined chamfering amount is automatically maintained, yet nevertheless the adjustment of the chamfering amount is achieved in a straightforward fashion with one touch, and, when the chamfering-amount-adjustment piece is manipulated, a cutter shaft moves vertically and as it does so the chamfering amount is adjusted in such a way that the chamfering amount can be immediately and rapidly adjusted even during working regardless of any cutter rotating action.02-16-2012

The present invention is realized by providing the technique of thoroughly processing an edge deeply positioned at a corner by selectively mounting a beveling tool for a right angled corner or a beveling tool for an acute angled corner onto the beveller, the technique of smoothly processing an edge in a corner section by sequentially separating the beveling tool for a corner and a rotary cutter for a corner coupled to an adapter and thereafter coupling a new rotary cutter for a curved section to the adapter, and the technique of applying the beveling tool for a right angled corner and the beveling tool for an acute angled corner to processing an edge in a straight-line section.11-18-2010
20120057945CHAMFER DEVICE FOR MACHINING WELD BEAD SURFACE WHICH ALLOWS ONE-TOUCH CHAMFERING-AMOUNT ADJUSTMENT - The present invention relates to a chamfer device for machining a weld bead surface, which specifically carries out a chamfering process on the welding bead surfaces of objects to be processed (such as metal sheet materials and pipes). In the present invention, immediately after a chamfering-amount-adjustment unit has been rotated and released, a position-setting pin is inserted into a securing recess in the chamfering-amount-adjustment unit, while the chamfering amount is adjusted in precise units and simultaneously locked at a predetermined chamfering amount which is automatically maintained, and the adjustment of the chamfering amount is achieved in a straightforward fashion with just one touch. When the chamfering-amount-adjustment unit is operated, a mobile cutter shaft moves vertically and as it does so the chamfering amount is adjusted in such a way that the chamfering amount can be immediately and rapidly adjusted while continuously operating without regard to any cutter rotation action.03-08-2012
