The Deburring Advantage of Repeatable and Predictable Processes

deburring process

When it comes to deburring operations, customers rely on The Cleveland Deburring Machine Company (CDMC) for high-volume, repeatable processes. Deburring is often overlooked on the spectrum of important manufacturing processes, but it can play a critical role the improvement of how well a machine performs the first one hundred or thousand times and beyond. The growing sophistication of lasers, turret punching and waterjet cutting machines could mean the potential of edges with burrs or sharp edges. These can be a liability particularly if there’s no established standard of how good an edge really needs to be.

Creation of the CDMC Standard

Sharp tools, precise feed rates and proper die clearance can help eliminate the possibility of mechanical and thermal burrs. The creation of mechanical burrs can occur through the actions of drilling, sawing, routing, punching and shearing. Slag or dross can occur with laser or plasma cutting. Deburring is an effective way to reduce these elements. When it comes to creating the right deburring solution, CDMC relies on its team of highly experienced designers and regular input from the customer on a technical level. We believe this level of involvement by all parties throughout the process is critical to the creation of the best manufacturing solution for an application.

Becoming Part of the Process

The inclusion of the customer throughout the sample part and evaluation process is one element that sets CDMC apart from its competitors. While CDMC offers a range of ready-made deburring solutions for sprockets, gears, aerospace and defense, power transmission, fluid power, and powder metals, that doesn’t mean custom jobs aren’t also welcome. Whether it’s a standard or custom application, the process always begins with an application report designed to assist a customer with understanding the processing of the deburring part. After working alongside the customer to refine the processes and part, CDMC can determine if a custom part is necessary or if one of CDMC’s standard machines might suit the customer’s needs. Variables in part sizes, cycle times and other limitations often require a custom application.
