Tooling Removes Burrs from Cross Holes

Heule Tool introduces its COFA-X tooling, said to be the first tooling system for removing burrs consistently from interior uneven bore edges with large intersections, such as valves, fittings and hydraulic manifolds. The product is designed for completely eliminating secondary burrs from cross holes with an identical or nearly identical diameter crossing each other; bores which merge into one another; and crossing bores with offset centers. This design reduces costs and improves cycles times for operations that were previously only possible with manual deburring, according to the company.
The COFA-X system is effective on fittings, hydraulic manifolds and other components with a 1:1 ratio of holes and bore diameters of 4.0 mm or larger.
This tooling product is pre-assembled with spring-loaded blade geometry to allow either front or back cutting. COFA-X tools are fully customized and built for application-specific projects.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
