A deburring machine can do more than just mechanical deburring
In addition to removing burrs, a deburring machine can also round the edges of sheet metal in the same step. The process chain also benefits from this, as people can injure themselves not only on the burrs, but also on sharp sheet metal edges. Automated deburring therefore ensures better occupational safety.
Rounded edges are also important for coating the sheet metal parts later on, as both wet and powder coatings show edge alignment: During crosslinking, the material pulls back on sharp edges. This leaves the sheet exposed to atmospheric oxygen and other influences at this point. This results in corrosion and damage. Certain standards, for example for steel construction or offshore applications, therefore require an edge rounding of 2 millimeters and more. This edge rounding helps to ensure that sheet metal parts are correctly coated.
In addition, it aids in coating as a deburring machine removes the oxide layer on the cut surfaces. Such an oxide layer is formed when oxygen is used as cutting gas. Although hard, it only adheres loosely to the base material. So when you apply the coating on this layer, it can quickly flake off. A weld seam then also becomes uneven or does not hold properly. You can easily eliminate this source of defects by using automated deburring.
Finishing module ensures satisfied customers
In addition to the sheet edges, a deburring machine also always processes the surfaces. That is why some systems contain their own finishing module. Thanks to automated deburring, you can make sheet metal parts look really good in the same production step.
Conclusion: A deburring machine can carry out several production steps, all of which are important for the sheet metal process chain. Automated deburring therefore makes an important contribution to productivity in sheet metal processing.
