Thermal cutting processes are essential to many manufacturing operations but often result in unwanted molten metal on parts. When facing slag from thermal cutting, choose slag hammer machinery from Timesavers.


42 Series RB

The 42 Series Rotary Brush dry machine is the ultimate machine for deburring, finishing, edge radiusing, laser oxide removal, and heavy slag removal. This machine offers the perfect solution for manufacturers who supply premium quality products. The high quality is achieved through a multi-rotating brush machine with eight abrasive flap brushes that deburr uniformly and round the edges of metal perfectly. The 42 Series RB is a 3 shift, heavy production, custom-built modular machine that can accommodate multiple customer applications.

Slag Grinders

Timesavers slag grinders are designed for heavy dross removal created by plasma tables. The slag grinder is offered in different duty cycles. The 12 Series SG is available for a 1 shift operation while the 22 Series is more heavy-duty and would be used in a 1-2 shift operation. The 42 Series with a Hammerhead would be used in a 3 shift, 24/7 operation.

What Is Slag?

Slag, also called dross, is molten metal that forms on parts created with thermal cutting processes, such as oxy-fuel, flame and plasma cutting. Slag can reduce the look and quality of a welded component, so manufacturers need to use dross removal processes to improve the final product. However, slag removal is often a time-consuming and difficult process.

Timesavers developed Hammerhead technology to solve this problem.

Hammerhead and Slag Removal

Our Hammerhead technology is purpose-built for heavy slag removal. The hammers are a series of steel pins arranged in staggering rows in vulcanized rubber. This arrangement ensures all machined parts are hit by at least one steel pin and helps to remove heavy burrs in addition to slag.

This solution hammers parts with counterclockwise movement up to 22 m p/secs/min to deliver optimal deslagging.


Our Heavy Slag Removal Machines Will Improve Your Production Lines

With our heavy slag removal machines, manufacturers can remove slag more efficiently and cost-effectively than with manual chipping. Since slag is a type of production waste, removing it is paramount for your final components. Using our machines lets you remove heavy slag and burrs in a single pass and enjoy the benefits of slag-free surfaces:

  • Professional look: Slag does not add any strength or structural value to metal pieces, and it also does not look attractive or professional. When slag is left behind, consumers may perceive your products as lower quality. By using our Hammerhead technology for efficient slag removal, you can ensure every component looks clean and polished.
  • Smooth coatings: Metal slag can make applying a smooth layer of adhesive coating difficult. With this thermal cutting waste taken care of, your production line will continue to move efficiently through the coating stage.
