Automated Deburring for Cross-Drilled Holes in Precision Metal Parts

Posted by Team BRM on Sep 11, 2017 11:46:22 AM

Cross-hole deburring is an essential finishing operation for precision metal parts. In engine and transmission components, cross-drilled holes serve as conduits for fluids, lubricants, and greases. If burrs block these passageways, problems can result. Metal burrs in cross-drilled holes can also affect dimensional tolerances and lead to part misalignments.

Manual cross-hole deburring can be time-consuming. Manufacturers and machinists can outsource deburring operations instead, but this adds time and costs to precision metal parts. That’s why in-house, automated cross-hole deburring is an attractive, cost-effective alternative. With BRM Flex-Hone® tools, you can use your own CNC machinery or other production equipment to get great results.

How to Automate Deburring and Surface Finishing

Posted by Team BRM on Sep 12, 2016 3:39:15 AM

Leading manufacturers are using automated deburring and surface finishing technologies to reduce labor costs, speed operations, and ensure part quality and consistency. Instead of removing burrs off-line during time-consuming secondary operations, these companies are using high-quality metalworking tools with their existing production equipment.

For both inner diameter (ID) and outer diameter (OD) applications, Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) supplies finishing and deburring tools that support automation. BRM Flex-Hone® tools and NamPower technology are used by large companies in global industries such as automotive and aerospace, but are also a favorite among smaller manufacturers, metalworkers, and machinists who want to automate their deburring and surface finishing operations in a high-performance, cost-effective way.
