The „sheet metal deburring“ process is massively focus on the enterprises. The increase in quality requirements, the willingness to achieve shorter turnaround times and the production of savings have allowed automated deburring machines to be increasingly used.
Novel deburring machines are usually equipped with several stations and allow integrated implementation of different processes. With appropriate tools, the processes of slag removal, grinding, deburring, rounding, oxides removal until the finish-grinding can be realized. Slag removal tools to remove the strong melting residues in plasma or gas cutting sheet metal are slag hammer brushes with a variety of flexibly mounted pins.
Primary burrs, spatters, unevenness and/or scale layers are normally removed with belts, discs or sheets. The deburring and edge rounding takes place through flexible abrasive tools in the form of discs, rollers or blocks. Here, secondary burrs are removed and the sheet edges are rounded up to 2mm or even larger.
If the cutting edges need to be freed from oxide layers, oxide brushes with flexible wire fill can be used to achieve blank metallic edge surfaces. The last step allows to make different types of sanding and finishing polishing. Grinding fleece, grinding tissue and felt tools are used.
