CDMC Offers Custom Deburring Solutions

custom deburring solutions

It doesn’t matter if you’re in charge of a small operation or a large one, quality always matters. Therefore, CDMC believes there’s always a place for finishing processes using a reliable deburring solution. Deburring remains one of the most trusted ways to remove the sharp edges and burrs from individual pieces and elements large and small. Regular use of the deburring process also keeps machinery safer in good working order and protects those who operate the machinery.

Benefits of Regular Deburring

Extends tool life

Minimizes wear and tear

Increases lifespan and productivity

Saves time and money

Dual Benefits

When we talk about specialized deburring technology we often think of the benefits for the manufacturer, but better maintained tools and equipment through deburring also benefits your customers. The finishing surface deburring provides enables an unmatched level of productivity and safety. This means customers not only see they are receiving a great product with a superior level of precision, but they also know a product was prepared in an environment that prioritizes the safety of its workers. Don’t your business, your customers and your workers deserve this?

Knowing that the deburring needs of each customer is unique, we hate to think of the deburring process being lumped in as anything as generic as one-size-fits-all. This process is anything but! Deburring takes many things into consideration. For example, do we need machine angled or straight edges? Is the workpiece flat or is it a cylindrical gear or sprocket? Maybe the piece needs a precise 90-degree edge or perhaps we should correct the micro burrs produced from chamfering. It’s all different, and that deserves a solution that’s anything but one-size-fits-all.

Tailored Deburring Solutions

When you choose to explore a deburring solution with Cleveland Deburring Machine Company, you’ll never receive a “one-size-fits-all” answer. Instead, we look for ways to customize each deburring option to your exact needs. We’ll start your needs assessment by looking at standard deburring options for gears, sprockets, powdered materials and fluid power parts. Next working together, we’ll determine if this is the best starting point or if a there is a better solution.

To learn more about our custom-made options, contact us about a no-cost application evaluation. This will help us determine your exact requirements and find the right deburring system to serve your needs. When you need custom deburring solutions, remember Cleveland Deburring Machine Company.

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.

A Reliable Deburring Solution is Important to Manufacturers

When looked at in isolation, a thin raised ridge or a spot of roughness might seem like no big problem. With caution, these areas could be worked around and those dealing with the product could be extra cautious. What’s not considered is how a raised edge or rough area has the potential to compromise the productivity of a manufacturing line as well as jeopardize the safety of those working the line.

Deburring Solution

Therefore, finding a reliable deburring solution is so important to manufacturers. Deburring is a proven process to eliminate thin ridges from a variety of metal materials as well as eliminate rough spots and burrs that can cause damage to a machine and a human. Cleveland Deburring Machine Company (CDMC) offers several deburring solutions to manufacturers and markets.

Deburring Needs

With the ability to build and configure deburring machine solutions for next to any application, CDMC recommends beginning your needs assessment by looking at some of the standard deburring practices such as gears, sprockets, powdered materials and fluid power parts. Once initial needs are determined, CDMC can help tailor a deburring solution to the exacting requirements of each customer.

Standard Deburring Practices

Fluid Power Parts are available in many sizes and shapes. These components include gearmotors, pump housings and pump gears. When considering a deburring practice, it’s important to consider the parts from many angles. To meet these varying angles, the deburring process must apply consistent brush pressure. This ensures the multi-faceted parts receive adequate preparation on all sides as well as above and below.

Gears are an essential element of machines. The use which dates back into the third century with applications by Greek mechanics. Consistent usage of gears creates burrs. This is true for several gears including a parallel axis gear, a ring gear, bevel gear or a pump gear. Use creates wear and a deburring process, used consistently, can keep gears functioning effectively for the long-term.

Powdered metals are metal parts not yet exposed to the sintering process. As a result, this fragile greenware demands care in handling and deburring. Powdered metals also cannot be magnetized during any part of the pre-sintering process. Do not fear! CDMC is here to help with special needs. We have deburring solutions ready to accommodate any special handling requirements and output needs.

Sprocket is a loose definition for any wheel form possessing radial projections. These offshoots help engage passing chain, track and tread. Applications for sprockets are large and small, from massive tanks on the battlefield to luminous film passing through a projector. CDMC can meet demands for sprocket deburring throughout the automation and manufacturing industries, offering solutions for sprockets on both faces and multi-row sprockets, too.
