Deburring

The Case for Abrasive Finishing Tools in CNC Applications

According to Brush Research Manufacturing, abrasive finishing tools do not release large amounts of grit into a machine’s coolant. Hear from three shops using these tools.

When Sophisticated CNC Machine Tools Aren't the Best Answer

As a machine shop owner, challenges come every day. Sometimes, relying on the tools you’re used to can keep you from finding more beneficial solutions.

Bel Air's AutoHone Uses Robot Arm to Insert, Remove, Clean and Dry Parts

Bel Air’s AutoHone reverse drag finisher rotates the media instead of the parts, which are then dipped into the flowing media in a rotating bin.

High-Energy Barrel Finishers Efficiently Deburr Complex Parts

Mass Finishing Inc. has developed high-energy barrel finishers that automate the process of deburring complex parts, saving time and eliminating the need to deburr parts by hand.

Debunking the Deburring Process

A car manufacturer struggled with a complex and unreliable deburring process for its crank case production line until it was introduced to a tool designed specifically for cross-bore deburring.

Deburring Difficult-to-Machine Materials

A wheel brush with nylon filaments that will not break off or deform can remove burrs from hard materials, such as 4140 steel. 

Shop Hands Over Gear Deburring to a Robot

Manual deburring of gears was an odious task for many of Katsa’s machinists, which in turn created a bottleneck that caused delays. The solution: a custom robotic deburring cell from Flexmill relying on Renishaw’s RMP60 probe. 

Drilling and Chamfering Tool Solves Machine Shop's Vexing Problem

An oil & gas part with a lot of holes required that Utex use two different tools to ensure burr-free inner and outer diameters. With Heule’s Vex-S tool, the shop realized time savings per cycle of an entire minute by performing drilling and chamfering in a single step.

EcoCvelox Combines Waterjet Deburring and Low-Pressure Cleaning

The process-dependent configurable and expandable machine with integrated linear transport system enables processing of parts with dimensions up to 200- x 200- x 200-mm cycle times of only 15 seconds per palette in the so-called one-piece flow.

4 Considerations for Electropolishing Machined Parts

Manufacturers considering this non-contact finishing process should expect test runs and close collaboration with service providers before production begins.

Burr-Free Micro Thread Whirling

Threading is usually the last operation when machining components, which is why the process needs to be reliable and highly precise. DC Swiss has developed an internal thread whirler, which leaves micro threads burr-free, even in demanding, hard-to-machine materials.

ATI Offers Deburring Blade Suitable for Automation

The pneumatically controlled, articulated design of ATI Industrial Automation’s Compliant Deburring Blade (CDB) enables users to tune the contact force to accommodate specific applications by changing the air pressure.
