No matter what we do during the manufacturing process, burrs will occur and require deburring. However, they are not all the same, so you cannot expect to use the same deburring process on every product containing burrs. As such, it is important to know ways to remove different types of burrs so you can choose the best option for your products.
A cut-off burr occurs when a chunk of material is left on a piece that projects outwardly and should not be there. This type of burr is most likely to occur after an incomplete cutting process and usually if you utilize an automatic screw or saw machine.
If ultimate precision is not a priority, you can remove cut-off burrs through manual deburring. This method is useful, especially if burrs are uncommon on your products.
A tear burr occurs if the cut product tears off instead of shearing off, creating a torn appearance. One common way to remove tear burrs is to utilize chemical deburring. This method allows you to remove burrs automatically and selectively so they don’t affect the integrity of the product.
You will find that rollover burrs are among the most common types of burrs on products, resulting for a matter of reasons, from shearing to piercing and punching. Due to the commonality of rollover burrs, many manufacturers will utilize a vibratory machine to remove them.
If you are looking for a vibratory machine you can trust to remove burrs accurately and efficiently, then we have just what you need! At AccuBrass, we have metal vibratory tumbler bowls available in large and small sizes to accommodate all product quantities.
Hot and Sharp Burrs
Hot burrs occur when a material goes through uncontrolled heating and cooling. Sharp burrs are quite common, occurring naturally during the manufacturing process. Burrs can cause serious factory work injuries, making deburring crucial to keeping everyone safe. Thankfully, the best way to remove both hot and sharp burrs is to utilize thermal deburring to burn them away quickly.
