At Burr-Off, we used our advanced thermal deburring process to clear the Adapter shown here of all burrs and machining residue. Constructed from 12L14 steel, it featured dimensions of 2.620″ in length and 1.120″ in width. Before deburring, we washed, rinsed, and dried the Adapter to remove all loose chips and machine oil to promote the consistency of burr removal. Based on metallurgy and part geometry, we developed a thermal process with tightly controlled pressure and heat intensity to incinerate all the minute residual burrs, even from difficult to reach areas. Following an acid wash to remove the scale which is a natural by-product of thermal exposure, we applied rust preventative to protect the product during shipping.
Our quality assurance process began with a first article inspection to validate process parameters. We used our 8-50X microscope with integral scale to measure and inspect for burrs, and continued to monitor quality throughout the production run to ensure all surfaces were completely smooth and free of damage.
We currently process 23,000 of these components on an annual basis with an average 2-4 day turnaround per lot for the customer in the fluid power industry. For more information about this project or the processes we used to complete it, contact us today.
