Whether traditional or new manufacturing processes are involved, none of the available technologies make it possible to produce component surface finishes in the required quality.
Process steps such as deburring, rounding and cleaning, as well as targeted functional or decorative surface finishing, are thus indispensable. Solutions by means of which these tasks can be executed reliably and economically will be presented at Deburring Expo 2019 in Karlsruhe on 8-10 October.
Parts manufacturing is currently faced with new tasks in numerous areas. Due to more and more complex geometries and finer structures, machined, formed, primary formed, forged, sintered and moulded workpieces are not only resulting in stricter requirements where actual parts production is concerned, but also during deburring and surface finishing. The technical cleanliness of components is an essential quality criterion in many sectors, including automotive, aerospace, machine building, medical engineering, metrology, sensor technology and drive technology, as well as electro-mobility.
“Reliable deburring, during which extremely fine burrs and flash must also be removed depending on the degree of required cleanliness, is a fundamental prerequisite for complying with cleanliness specifications,” explains Hartmut Herdin, managing director of fairXperts GmbH & Co. KG, promoters of Deburring Expo.
Furthermore, in some cases, surfaces are required that minimise friction, wear and noise, and which make it possible to enhance performance and extend service life. Downstream processes such as joining, sealing, coating and assembly also necessitate burr-free, and in some cases, rounded edges, for various reasons. And thus for example, in the field of sheet metal processing, deburring minimises the risk of injury due to sharp edges and reduces tooling wear for edging and straightening machines. In addition, good deburring and well-defined edge rounding make it possible to enhance painting quality at the edges.
