Information about Deburring


One of the applications of abrasive blasting is deburring. Deburring is a material modification process that removes small imperfections like sharp edges, or burrs from a material.


What are Burrs?

Burrs are small sharp, raised, or jagged pieces of materials on a workpiece. Burrs can affect the quality, duration of service, and performance of the projects. Burrs occur during various machining processes, such as welding, stamping, and folding. Burrs can make it difficult for metals to function properly which impacts the production efficiency.


Types of Burrs

There are also several types of burrs that often occur.

1.     Rollover burrs: these are the most common type of burrs, and they happen when a part is being pierced, punched, or sheard.

2.     Poisson burrs:  This type of burrs occurs when the tool removes a layer from the surface laterally.

3.     Breakout burrs: breakout burrs have an upswelling shape and look like they are breaking out of the workpiece.


Besides these three types of burrs, there are more of them. No matter which types of burrs you see on the metal surfaces, forgetting to deburr metal parts can damage the machines and be dangerous to people who need to handle the metal materials. If your company is related to metal parts and machines, you need to make sure your tools are reliable and make customers satisfied with the products they get.

With a deburring machine, burrs can be removed effectively. After removing burrs from the metal workpieces, the friction between metal workpieces and machines also reduces which could increase the life span of the machines. Moreover, the deburring process creates high-quality edges and makes the metal surfaces smoother. So, the process of assembling metal parts would also be a lot easier for people. The process of deburring also decreases the risks of injury for people that need to handle the projects.
