Deburring Services for Cast, Molded, Machined, and Fabricated Parts
In the manufacturing world, deburring refers to various methods used to remove burrs, the residual rough edges or protrusions left behind after a part is produced. Burrs and sharp edges can cause trouble for the manufacturing industry. Burrs can have a large impact from creating a less than desired surface, parts assembly being negatively impacted, workers suffering cuts or injury, or the direct impact on the performance and appearance of the product.

Manufacturers can have better control of their manufacturing equipment, processes, and components by reducing or eliminating burrs. Surface roughness and edge quality play an important role in the overall manufacturing process. Having control of burrs in the final stages will help promote adhesion or cosmetic finishes, reduce negative product performance, and improve general surface appearance.
Types of Burrs
- Cut-Off Burr
- Exit Burr
- Poisson Burr
- Roll-Over Burr
- Tear Burr
Benefits of Deburring
- Achieve higher quality finishes
- Improve consistency
- Improve edge quality
- Improve part performance
- Increase safety
- Promote finish adhesion
- Provide better surface appearance
- Reduce assembly time
- Reduce cutting/drilling ridges
- Reduce surface roughness
Specializing in Burr Removal
ISO Finishing specializes in the mass finishing of burr removal with vibratory and centrifugal barrel (high-energy) machines. Vibratory deburring and finishing is the most common mass finishing method. It is much more efficient and economical than hand deburring and provides a very consistent part finishing process for high-volume part finishing. Centrifugal barrel finishing uses the same tumbling media as in the vibratory deburring process. The centrifugal processing can achieve superior surface finishing more quickly and without the use of chemicals due to the rapid rotation and centrifugal force on the media and parts.

Centrifugal barrel finishing is typically used on parts where heavy deburring is required. The barrels of centrifugal finishing machines are ideal for heavy loads. Dry tumbling is used when delicate deburring is required to produce a smooth finish. Wet barreling is used for metal processing to remove excess material as well as providing a polished surface.

Vibratory deburring machines are precise and can deburr even the slightest niches or alcoves in the parts. This makes the deburring process great for delicate and intricate components. This process can also be used on large surfaces because the machines can process with very short strokes and high speeds. Vibratory machines can be automated quite easily compared to tumblers.
Both deburring processes are highly customizable based upon the desired finish. ISO Finishing’s skilled engineers and technicians have the experience and knowledge to design the most effective process and deburring service for the specific type of finish your parts require.
