The process of removing from workpieces any burrs that are produced during boring or milling, for example, in the manufacture of engines and transmissions. If these burrs are not removed, they could break off later and cause damage to or even the failure of the system.
Process of removing a burr after board drilling. Deburring operations fall into two categories: producing a clean, sharp edge when removing heavy burr; and radiusing the edge of the holes to prevent build-up in plating.
After machining, the windows of the wheel may have sharp edges, or burrs. These sharp edges need to be removed before clearcoating to prevent corrosion. The process of removing sharp edges is called deburring.
A process to remove burrs --undesirable protusions and metal edges that result from machining operations. Methods include hand and automated processes that use files, rasps, bonded abrasives, coated abrasives, and other tools.Coated abrasives, nonwoven products and stones are typically used for deburring.
In production engineering, a burr (= sharp-edged notch) is formed at edges and borders of work-pieces in most of the procedures: for cast components at the seam line of upper and lower part of the mould, for die components at the seam line of upper and lower die, at the cutting edges of shears and saw blanks, at welding seams, etc. These have to be removed for reasons of functional fulfillment or safety, too. There are numerous possibilities for that: e.g. grinding, brushing as well as chemical, electrochemical and electric removing procedures or also combinations of these procedures.
