Burrs are projections of material beyond the workpiece limits. It consists of an undesirable extended surface over the piece. The burr formation is almost impossible to avoid due to manufacturing processes, formation mechanisms, shape and material properties. On the other hand, there are several deburring processes to remove efficiently the burrs from a different variety of geometries.
The usual and oldest process consists in manually remove the burrs by using an abrasive or wire brush deburring tool. This method is widely used because of its extreme flexibility, low cost and lack of technology needed. On the other hand, this process is time consuming which reduces the productivity in the production lines. Also, there are some disadvantages of the manual process: brush wires may be unleashed; the operator can lose control of the tube and, since the operator is more exposed to the brush and the cutting edges of the tube, may suffer hands injuries.
OD Tube End Deburring Machine is one the most efficient solution to remove tube and profiles end burrs, clean and remove tube sharp edges caused by sawing. This tube end deburring machine enables simultaneous outside and inside tube burrs removal without rotating the tube. The solution to deburr tube ends with OD Tube End Deburring Machine is the answer to the manual process with a productive, safer, simpler and flexible deburring method.
The operation is very simple because the operator doesnt need to rotate the tube as the brushes rotate all around its shape. Also, due to its fast tube clamping system the OD Tube End Deburring Machine is capable to deburr and easily operate different shapes – from round to square tubes and aluminum profiles – treating all edges uniformly. This system was developed not only to fix the tube while doing the tube deburring process but also to cover the brush and avoid injuries for the operator as well as ensure a cleaner environment.
