Detroit Metal Tumbling And Deburring
During the manufacturing process, it is common for metal parts to have small raised edges, which can sometimes be sharp and hazardous. These remaining tiny fragments of metal attached to the parts are referred to as burrs. To eliminate these small, stray metal pieces that pose potential dangers during handling, a deburring process is employed.
Ideally, the key to manufacturing metal parts without burrs is to avoid creating any burrs during the cutting process. However, achieving this is not always feasible. Cutting metal inevitably leads to minor imperfections in the material, resulting in burrs. Acknowledging this challenge, the team of highly experienced personnel at Automotive Tumbling has developed custom equipment specifically designed to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers.
INSIDE THE MACHINES
Both Barrel tumbling and vibratory deburring utilize media to achieve smooth and clean edges on metal parts. The deburring machines in our facility employ various types of media, including stone, ceramic, or plastic beads. Water is incorporated into the machines to wash away dirt and transport the media. In certain cases, chemicals are employed to enhance the final product's quality.
Deburring is the process of removing sharp burrs from the edges of both large and small parts to create a smoother surface. Tumble Deburring, specifically, is employed as a pretreatment for the next operation and is suitable for medium to large, less-fragile stampings. This process generates softened edges on metal components, rendering them safe to handle while also facilitating the adhesion of plating or other coating systems on these edges. Our vibratory finishing and shot blasting operations greatly benefit from this effective deburring and cleaning approach.
DEBURRING BARREL TUMBLERS detroit
Deburring barrel tumblers in Detroit offer a highly versatile solution for various metal finishing needs. These tumblers find wide-ranging applications, including heavy deburring, high polishing, degating, and parts drying. At Automotive Tumbling, we boast the largest fleet of barrel tumblers in Michigan, capable of efficiently handling any volume of parts.
In this process, the barrel slowly rotates and cascades to achieve the desired surface finish for the product. This method provides multiple options tailored to our clients' specific needs. Moreover, the process can be conducted either in a wet or dry environment, and the use of media is not always necessary.
Wet barrel finishing: In this system, water is utilized in a batch setup to remove excess material or polish parts. The inclusion of water and finishing compounds facilitates the formation of radii, removal of burrs, improvement of surface appearances, polishing, and cleaning. Wet barrel tumbling is an excellent choice for processing both metal and plastic parts.
Dry barrel finishing: This batch system is designed for mass polishing or removing excess material from plastic or metal parts without the use of liquids. Dry tumbling is particularly advantageous when finishing delicate parts that could be at risk of damage in a wet barrel. Additionally, a dry system yields a smoother and higher-quality finish.
