Quick Read: Flat Bed Deburring Introduction

Deburring Machine

A machine we frequently have in stock at our warehouse, flat part deburring machines are key to finishing metal components of a flat shape/form. The go-to for surface finishing, edge rounding, de-slagging, grinding and preparing for coating of flat metal components, the configuration of these machines can be adapted to suit the function.

Why is Deburring Needed for Flat Components?

During the manufacturing of metal components, a variety of processes are used that frequently leave small metal fragments & burrs on the components. If not corrected it would hinder the functionality and quality of the parts.

Processes that require deburring include:

  • Graining
  • Laser cutting
  • Plasma cutting
  • Water jet cutting
  • Oxy-fuel cutting
  • Punching
  • Fine blanking
  • Sheet metal work
  • Perforators
  • Plate cutting

Used in industries such as automobile to aerospace, flat part deburring is often used to finish components for clutches, compressor & valve plate brakes, and Hydraulic pumps.

How Does Flat Component Deburring Work?

The simple explanation of flat bed deburring machines is that the parts are placed on a conveyor belt and moved through the machine whilst encountering some abrasive belt & brush heads when inside.  

The abrasive belts are coated in different sized grit to remove the burr. Belts with smaller grit are more suitable for softer metal alloys while rougher belt grit is best for harder metals like steel.

Belt Set Up

The setup of the grinders inside can be one, two or multiple belts like in the image above. By adding brushes to the process, additional finishes are available such as rounding the edges. Depending on the metal and size, the user is able to arrange the belts and brushes in the order that suits the component.

An example of why someone may want a belt-only lineup is that they want to finish the components with a uniform lined texture. Now recognised as a professional quality finish, this finish is frequently used in the aerospace and defence industries.

In a setup with brushes, the rotation of the brushes contrasts with the belts preventing a lined texture. Also, brushes have the advantage of being able to round the edges as part of removing sharp burr from the components. For a thorough deburr of the edges, we recommend a setup that includes two brushes but in opposite directions (clockwise and anti-clockwise) to reach all the edges of the component.

Rotary Deburring

The design of flatbed deburring machines is not limited to linear belts and brushes. There is a rotary alternative that uses solely brushes but instead of a long brush that goes all the way across the processing area, smaller brushes are fitted to a central spinning spindle. The smaller brushes vary between clockwise and anti-clockwise directions all while the spindle rotates and moves over the components.

This method is another option for metal finishers to consider when deciding on the most suitable deburring method for them.

Summary

The process of flat part deburring is a simple and effective solution for many businesses. Critical for metal finishing flat components, the process of just removing burrs has many benefits for the final finish and this method is just one of them.
