Abtex Deburring System Enhances Coronavirus Relief Operations

Abtex LLC recently designed and quickly built a deburring system for Western Shelter, the organization whose emergency shelter buildings are currently in high demand for COVID-19 relief operations. Western Shelter’s primary structural material is aluminum, selected for its lightweight, strength and durability—all required for the rapid construction of emergency field buildings.

With more than four decades of expertise in designing deburring systems specifically to improve the precision and the handling safety of aluminum extrusions, Abtex is well known in the world of aluminum manufacturing and was a natural choice as Western Shelter’s deburring partner.

“Because of their quality orientation and need for speed, Western Shelters has become the preferred choice of disaster and medical-response communities,” says Abtex President Jason Saner. “FEMA US&R teams have used them exclusively in response to every major hurricane over the past 24 years. We are proud to support them in this important mission.”

The Abtex Manual Deburring system will ship to Western Shelter’s primary production facility in Eugene, Ore., this month.
