When you’re considering the addition of deburring to your manufacturing processes, we hope you think of the Cleveland Deburring Machine Company (CDMC). Over the years, we’ve helped many businesses find innovative ways to improve their manufacturing processes through custom deburring solutions.

The process of deburring is a proven way to eliminate thin, rough ridges from metal materials as well as remove rough spots and burrs. The preventative act of deburring not only results in the creation of a better-quality output, it also generates a product that minimizes the possibility of damage to a machine and to the human tasked with using the machine.

The need for deburring machines translates across multiple sectors in the manufacturing industry. At CDMC, we’re proud to say our deburring processes, including abrasive brush machining, de-flashing, and descaling, continue to bring a range of benefits to a multitude of manufacturers that are looking to create better, stronger, more-reliable products.

Family-Owned and Operated

While many manufacturers know our work under the CDMC name, you might not know almost 27 years ago we originally got our start as On-Line Services, Inc. The company was founded by Eric Mutschler. Fourteen years after its founding, Eric sold On-Line Services, Inc. But understanding the importance of quality deburring solutions to the manufacturing industry, Eric later reinvested those assets in a new business in 2009. His investment went into Cleveland Deburring Machine Company, founded by his sons Adam and Christopher.

Knowing the benefits of a good thing, today CDMC occupies the same space in Cleveland where On-Line Services once stood. The Mutschler family understands the importance of offering top-notch deburring services that are simple and streamlined, never complicated.

Quality Stands the Test of Time

Quality work should stand the test of time, so while times change and technology improves, we believe there will always be a need for quality machine finishing solutions. Deburring remains one of the best and most cost-effective ways to minimize wear on parts, extend tool life and increase productivity. We know when tools and machines function more efficiently, our customers save time, money and manpower. Customer-driven, flexible deburring solutions are key to making this a reality.

In the coming years, CDMC will continue to look for ways to improve how we offer custom deburring solutions to our valued customers. This includes utilizing a local supply chain to make parts and assembling machinery in our in-house workshop. We believe efforts such as these allow us to maintain a level of flexibility that helps us meet the evolving deburring demands of the industry and its individual manufacturers. At CDMC, we understand our clients and their needs demand and deserve unique deburring solutions.

Variety is the spice of life. As the go-to source for deburring solutions, Cleveland Deburring Machine Company is proud to work with clients from a range of industries. Those we’ve worked with have discovered how reliable deburring solutions help manufacturing processes run smoother while raising the level of safety for employees working the machines. While a raised edge or a rough spot might not seem like a big deal, overtime these burrs can compromise safety, cause immeasurable damage and be a drain on time and resources if not looked after.

Aerospace & Defense

One thing CDMC prides itself on is the creation of deburring solutions that address specific challenges as it pertains to different parts and metals used within that industry. As you might imagine, these can be highly specialized and require unique solutions. An example of one area of such specialization is with deburring applications for the aerospace and defense industry.

After experiencing a solid year in 2018, the aerospace and defense industry continues to have strong growth as a result of greater demand for passenger travel and global military spending on the rise. Commercial aircraft production and strong defense spending are also expected to rise, according to Deloitte’s 2019 Global Aerospace and Defense Industry Outlook report.

For many industries, aerospace and defense is a desired partner because of the number of jobs it creates. More than 1 million American workers are directly employed, and additional jobs are created through partnerships with other business and manufacturers that serve the aerospace and defense industry. Such numbers are directly responsible for boosting local and national economies.

At CDMC, we’re proud to partner with those in the aerospace and defense industry because it allows us to stretch our knowledge as we create new solutions specific to the materials and parts needs of the industry. This includes solutions for the use of nickel and titanium alloys used for the development of aircraft and defense mechanism parts. Because these alloys can be difficult to machine, deburring is a critical element for the industry when it comes to metal cutting and forming and finishing on a variety of parts.

Why the Pharmaceutical Industry Should Have a Deburring Process

deburring

Accuracy is critical in many industries but in the pharmaceutical industry, accuracy or lack thereof can easily be a matter of life or death. As a result, manufacturers in the industry must have machines and parts that are accurate and dependable. Anything that’s produced on these lines must be predictable and repeatable. Those in the industry know that even the smallest alteration being off spec has the potential to produce disastrous results. As the scale of the operation grows, these tenets become even more important.

The resulting margin for error is often small. A change in calibration or quantity, a small burr or an irregularity in a part, gasket or fitting could all spell trouble. Any one of these things might be the cause of a leak, mismeasurement or an even larger problem that could completely stop production on the line. While a production stop is not good in any industry, it’s downright dangerous when experienced in the pharmaceutical industry.

Many of the pharmaceutical products produced are time-sensitive and an unexpected delay could mean an entire batch needs to be thrown away, an unfortunate waste of time and money. Not to mention how a leak or mix that’s not kept sterile could endanger workers in the process. Therefore, quality deburring machinery is an important asset to all manufacturing processes. Having reliable deburring equipment in place can add an additional layer of safety for the pharmaceutical manufacturers as more and more take on the work of medical-grade components.
