Ways to Deburr Small Parts
This article looks at techniques that have been successfully applied in shops dealing with small parts and the need to get the burrs off them.
Small parts all share burrs in common; the removal of which presents challenges to manufacturers.
Burrs are often an inescapable byproduct of metalworking. They occur in virtually every process and material found in a shop. Usually, burrs can be seen and dealt with, but there are applications that require a look at “micro deburring” as a solution to cleaning up small parts.
The article, “Micro Deburring Gets Hot,” looks at techniques that have been successfully applied in shops dealing with small parts and the need to get the burrs off them. Because of the variability of burrs, the removal process is often performed by hand, which gets more difficult on small parts.
There are some mass deburring techniques that can solve this, and they are discussed in this article. The fact is, deburring is as much art as it is science, but there are ways to increase efficiency and reduce costs associated with performing deburring on precision machined parts.
