CNC Basics for Deburring and Cleaning

This week, we’re taking a look at CNC controls in deburring and parts cleaning. What is CNC? And how it can be used with these technologies? Combining CNC controls with high-pressure water deburrs and cleans parts in one eco-friendly process, removing burrs and loose chips even in deep holes – all while leaving the part clean and free of debris. …

Mechanical Deburring Methods

In the past weeks, we have discussed types of burrs and the many methods of removal. We took a deeper dive last week into high-pressure water jet deburring –  and today we’re taking a look at mechanical hard tool deburring. Mechanical deburring employs cutting, grinding, milling, or brushing tools to remove burrs through direct contact. It is ideal when burrs …

Benefits of Water Jet Deburring

As we discussed last week, there are many ways to deburr. This week we’re taking a closer look at High-Pressure Water Jet Deburring. The first thing that bears mentioning is that CNC-controlled, high-pressure water jet deburring produces accurate, repeatable, and predictable results. For the right situation and parts, it’s an ideal solution to remove burrs.  High-Pressure Water Jet Deburring is …

Common Deburring Methods

Last week we looked at the five classes that encompass most burrs. This week we are exploring the many common deburring methods that are frequently considered for removal. There are many options for deburring; manual vs. mechanical, with or without chemicals or solvents, explosive methods, grinding, tumbling, the list is extensive.  The key is to determine the best method to …

Classification of Burrs

Last week we spent some time covering the identification of burrs . Why? Because it can help you pinpoint the best removal processes or prevention methods. This week we’re looking at the classes burrs fall into. First, we’ve discussed that burrs come in many types, and furthermore can be classified in several different ways. They can be sorted by machining …

Types of Burrs by Machining Process

Just joining us? Take a look at last week’s Deburring 101: Reasons Deburring is Crucial Burrs are not “one size fits all.” Burrs come in as many different types as there are machining processes and methods. Identifying burrs allows you to address not only removal processes but also possibilities of preventing them from occurring in the first place. Examining the …
