Vibration deburring provides smooth surfaces and is particularly suitable for small items. The items are placed in a drum containing small chips/grindstones. A deburring process takes place by rotating the items in the machine until the surface finish that has been agreed with you, is obtained.
Deburring ensures the highest possible quality when removing burrs from laser cut items. This deburring method is applied to large items, primarily. In other words, deburring takes over where vibration deburring stops.
Deburring is a process where the item is placed on a belt which is then run through a brush rondelle. Burrs are removed and edges are rounded to a certain limit. The end finish is agreed upon at project start-up.
The industry requirements for burr free parts are increasing as this makes the further process easier and cheaper, see the examples below:
The requirements for burr free stainless steel are high. Within the food industry, visible items must not show sharp edges or burrs. This characterises the entire process industry. The requirements are put forward as it may have major consequences if a production is stopped due to hygiene reasons. The reason may be employees cutting themselves or stuck dirt due to burrs/sharp edges.
You avoid a manual grinding process. You do not need to manually grind the item prior to welding. Basically, this means a less costly end product, since the grinding process becomes expensive if it implies paying a time rate for the performance of an automated process.
Items that are to be powder-coated requires a burr free surface. The rounded edges allow the powder-coat to attach better. Deburring eliminates peeled off paint on the edges.
