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. The CDB is said to excel in light and medium deburring, chamfering and scraping operations on materials such as plastic, aluminum, steel and brass. The robust collet accommodates a variety of blades and media used with hand deburring tools. The blades can be changed without the use of additional tools. 

A simple mechanical design without high-speed moving parts makes the CDB ideal for collaborative robotics processes, while axial and radial compliance maintains constant force when deburring surface irregularities. Integrating the CDB into a robotic material removal application not only reduces robotic programming time, but also makes the programming process easier, according to the company.

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.
