Deburring services are offered by many modern companies that specialize in finishing, as it is one of the most cutting edge, reliable methods of creating a smooth and predictable finish. As rough and uneven finishes can severely damage machines and cost you lots of money in repairs and replacements over the long term, it is important to take preventative measures early on and give your machines a thorough finish before you begin using them.

What is Deburring?
Deburring is the state-of-the-art process used to ensure that machines are properly finished. It is often completed with vibratory finishing (VF), a popular method that has satisfied many clients in the medical, dental, military, weaponry, and aerospace industries, among others.

Deburring is not favored simply for the ease and consistency of its results. It is also useful because it allows for mass finishing projects to be completed quickly and efficiently, all in one load rather than in separate parts. This saves customers a great deal of time, energy, and financial strain. Most finishing companies provide deburring services, so if you need a project completed in a short amount of time, consider this simple method.

Vibratory Finishing
Vibratory finishing is typically used for mass finishing projects. It can be used for finishing, deburring, radius, descaling, burnishing, cleaning, and brightening small parts in large batches.

Each part is placed in a large tub full of water and surfactants, plus other materials if necessary. Then, a weight rotates circularly, causing the parts to rub up against one another, which over time creates the desired smoothness. The frequency and amplitude of the machine can be adjusted, and skilled operators are willing to discuss the best settings with you.

Frequencies and Amplitudes
The settings can be altered in a variety of ways, depending on your specific needs. High frequencies and low amplitudes are typically used when fine finishings are required while high frequencies and high amplitudes are usually combined if burrs and radius edges on larger parts need to be removed. Since the top of the tub is left open, the operator can examine the procedure as it is occurring, and adjust the frequencies accordingly if anything goes wrong.

Possessing this level of control while providing deburring services allows operators to be certain that everything is functioning properly. It is easy to see why this is such a state-of-the-art method of finishing and deburring.

Consider deburring services if you have a small or large project, and would like to extend the lifespan of your machinery.
