Abtex Corporation has expanded its Tri-Ten series of deburring systems to include a model designed to accept precision-ground parts in carriers directly from a grinding, lapping or honing machine. A magnetized belt grips the parts in their carrier and presents them to the planetary head, where three 10" abrasive-filament disc brushes deburr the upward facing surface. Edge break, surface finish and material removal are said to be accurately controlled. The parts are then rinsed under a coolant shower and dried by an air knife before traveling over a demagnetizer.
The deburring systems are customized to accept Abtex application-specific abrasive filament brushes. The brushes can be specified with silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, ceramic or diamond filaments. All are mounted in the company’s proprietary, molded, composite material.
