Friction deburring is an efficient and economical process for the de-slagging and de-burring of flame cut blanks.

Friction deburring machines can handle parts as small as 30 x 30mm and as large as 1,100 x 250mm.

Maximum individual part weight is approximately 30kg.

Several size models are available with drum capacities from 400 to 1,000 litres.

An optional loading and unloading system can be specified.

Friction deburring performs best on plate with scale and dross.

Once parts are loaded into a hexagonal drum lined with specially formulated wear-resistant polyurethane, a choice of several programmes is available to achieve the best results.

Parts gently slide over each other, cleaning the surface and deburring edges at the same time.

For most parts no additives are necessary, but for oily parts it is recommended to add sawdust and for very small parts or parts with holes, scrap pieces or cast-iron cones should be added.

Dust is extracted via a suitable dust extractor – the specification of which depends on the material and the amount of dross and scale.

The noise of the machine in operation is between 68 and 72dBA.

A typical cycle time for a machine with a 600-litre drum size and a 400-litre fill capacity is 30min.

This corresponds to approximately 800kg.

Compared with manual deburring, a saving of approximately GBP200 is claimed for each loading.
