CDMC Offers 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.

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.
