One of the most basic challenges in machining can also be one of the most difficult challenges to address. And as workpieces get smaller, the difficulty increases. That challenge is burr formation.

A reader machining tiny intersecting holes recently found that a chronic area of difficulty is the burr that forms at the holes’ intersection. The expert in our Micromachining Zone offered some advice about how to avoid this burr formation.

In fact, in micromachining, deburring can actually be more costly and time-consuming than the actual machining of the part. One shop diversifying from standard-sized work into micromachining described this very point.

We have covered various technologies and techniques that have been applied successfully to deburring, and we’d like to cover more. Contact me with a deburring success from your shop. For more about deburring technology, see our Deburring Zone.
