Machine for sharpening ice skates

In early 2010 we again completed a machine for sharpening ice skates, for perfectly rounding marathon ice skates. This is the second machine commissioned by Van der Hoorn from Ter-Aar. From far and near, ice skaters come to Van der Hoorn to have their ice skates rounded and get all other things they need. Nine years ago, Rick asked us whether it would be possible for us to automise rounding ice skates. After thorough analysis we found that an existing sharpening machine with a reach of 1 metre and a weight of 4500 kg met most of the demands. We built a rounding installation on this tested machine, sharpening the rounding with an accuracy of a few thousandth of a millimetre.
