Blast finishing can speedily remove lightly attached burrs from complex machined components and can be more effective than hand or machine deburring in areas with poor accessibility.
Non-abrasive deburring medias leave even fragile materials untouched. Deburring is a finishing method used in industrial settings and manufacturing environments.
Metal is frequently machined using many processes in order to create pieces of specific shape and size. For example, metal may be welded, moulded, cast, trimmed, slit or sheared.
These procedures often create ragged edges or protrusions. The raised particles and shavings that appear when metal blanks are machined are referred to as burrs, and the process by which they are removed is known as deburring.
Other methods of deburring require repetitive filing or use of a grinder to smooth away nicks and fragments a time consuming and costly process. Deburring and polishing may be necessary for more than one section of a metal component, since burrs and shavings can occur on seams as well as edges. All surfaces need to be completely smooth.
Deburring is important for quality, aesthetics, functionality and smooth operation of working parts. It is also important for safety. Even a small notch can cause moving parts to catch, creating the potential for accident, injury or unnecessary delay in production.
Rough edges can also cause injury when individuals are required to handle blanks. Each of these preventable problems can cost companies a great deal of money.
Deburring greatly improves the quality and functionality of metal making it a necessary use of time and a cost effective process
