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.

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.

Deburring is a Critical Aspect of Quality Manufacturing Processes

deburring process

We live in an age of global manufacturing. While this offers an opportunity to work with a broader range of people across the world, it also means that manufacturing standards of those products are reliant on the manufacturer doing the work. Standards of work often vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and country to country. One example of this is the determination of what’s considered “burr free.” Depending on the manufacturer and the product(s) being deburred, this could mean anything from the removal of burrs that can be seen by the human eye to stricter standards employing total product quality inspections.

What’s not always understood is that shifting definitions tend to produce very different outcomes that don’t always meet the quality and safety concerns of customers. As a trusted designer and manufacturer of deburring solutions, we at CDMC believe deburring standards should meet a stricter standard. This is not only because of the potential for burrs and sharp edges to create safety issues on the manufacturing floor, it’s because deburring is the final step in manufacturing. A step that can extend the life of machines in the plant. Safety hazards, environmental concerns and unexpected downtime in the form of broken machines do not bode well for the company, its employees or the bottom line.

Deburring Maintenance

Standardization of deburring as it pertains to the appearance of the finished product is extremely important. Thankfully, there are a range of processes such as those offered by CDMC that are designed to minimize burrs through tool and process design. Determining the right manufacturing process can help eliminate burr properties such as roughness, shape, thickness and location, in addition to eliminating the troublesome build-up of burrs on gears and sprockets.

Eliminating burrs through these various proven processes can improve edge fitting interference in product assembly, eliminate jamming of mechanisms along the assembly line, decrease wear on parts, improve seals where seams join and minimize unnecessary cuts and bruising for workers on the line. Deburring using a range of surfaces including silicon carbide and diamond brushes is a reliable way to remove troublesome burrs.

CDMC Deburring Options

Model 5000 – deburrs parallel-axis gears with consistent, repeatable results

Model 1220 – uses a large diameter nylon radial brush for ring gears up to 15” in diameter

Model 3000 – perfect for standard bevel gears up to 48” in diameter

Deburring is a critical aspect of quality manufacturing processes and one that should not ever be overlooked. Cleveland Deburring Machine Company (CDMC) offers customers around the world reliable, consistent and repeatable deburring processes.
