For complex parts with high surface finish specs, production deburring and surface prep can be done using the Drag Finishing process.
Deburring is a consideration, and often a problem, for all manufacturing engineers. The burrs resulting from a metalworking operation may be tolerable; however, burrs are always present.
Finishing systems with robotic loading capability can enable complex parts to be deburred, polished or smoothed without bumping into each other and causing them to be damaged.
Norton, a Saint-Gobain brand, has added to its Blaze line with a series of nylon abrasive brushes made with high-quality ceramic grains to ease integration into automated machinery, machining centers, transfer lines, robotic cells and other specialized machinery as well as portable power hand tools.
Rosler’s Surf finishing machine uses an automated surface finishing process designed for deburring, surface grinding, smoothing and polishing of components with complex geometries.
Having trouble deburring the inner passages of a solid metal part? Read about how one company found the solution in Thermal Energy Machining (TEM), and is having a blast in the process.
One of the many challenges of machining tiny parts is the deburring process, called micro deburring.
