Benefits of Robotic Deburring Systems

One of the main benefits of employing robotic deburring systems is removing the human limitations that occur when manufacturers rely on manual deburring operations. In the past, manufacturers were able to do basic deburring, effectively achieving burr-free parts, but this was a time-consuming and inaccurate science. There is little to no consistency when it comes to a manual deburring technique from part to part, day to day.

Enter the Technology

While experience is instrumental in any manufacturing process, the addition of technology through a robotic deburring system can make powdered metal materials more than just free from burrs. The choice of a robotic deburring system depends on the desired edges. Robotic deburring can use belts, brushes or both brushes and belts. Abrasive brushes are necessary for finishing processes made in a variety of filaments. Bristle filament types include rectangular, crimped and rounded versions. Other considerations include grit size, filament and the ration of abrasive grains to nylon.

If you’re a manufacturer looking to deburr powdered metals and green powdered metals, the CDMC Mag series offers through-feed, in-line deburring machines on flat parts needing deburring on both sides.

Advantages of Fanuc America Motors

Many of us grew up hearing the story of the little engine that could. Within the manufacturing industry the modern-day version might best be exemplified by the advantages of Fanuc America’s servo motors. These self-contained electric devices have the ability to rotate and move parts within a machine with extreme precision. The small-but-precise servo motors have the ability to power everything from a child’s toy to electronics, robots and airplanes. The versatile servo motor also helps power in-line manufacturing and robotic-powered manufacturing operations.

What Lies Under the Servo Motor “Hood”

Small DC motor

Potentiometer

Circuit control

The smart and efficient design of a servo motor attaches gears to the control wheel. Rotations in the motor produce resistance changes in the potentiometer, and the circuit control regulates the amount of movement and the direction of movement. Fanuc America is one of the most trusted producers of servo motors used in robotics-enhanced equipment. Many manufacturers incorporate Fanuc America’s CNC, robot and ROBOMACHINE elements to enhance manufacturing services and factory automation solutions.

Uses for CNC Products

Control machine tools

Drive systems

Motion control applications

Laser systems

Productivity software
