Now an accepted part of manufacturing, powdered metals provides additional strength to greenware, which can be variable in terms of its sturdiness. Its strength comes from the use of compacted metal powders bonded with heat. The process also produces little in terms of scrap metal waste, a benefit to any manufacturer looking to build a more sustainable operation.
To further increase the benefits of
powdered metal parts and their use, CDMC believes manufacturers need and
deserve solutions tailored to powdered metals that improve on the last stage of
the deburring process.
To this end, CDMC offers a line of
powdered metal deburring machines. This includes the Mag Series. The Mag Series
accommodates through-feed, in-line deburring on both sides. The machines offer
a series of magnetic conveyors, which bring the powdered metal parts to a
series of brushes. The adaptable through-feed machine helps eliminate earlier
issues of having to turn the piece over to deburr the other side and lessen the
ambiguity introduced by the human element.
compensation system to maintain brush pressure
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
