STUDY CASES FOR DEBURRING

Supercars engine block precision deburring

The robotic station is designed for the V8 engine blocks precision deburring of luxury supercars.

Critical work point, poorly accessible, are processed with special tools mounted on electric spindles.

Aerospace: Precision deburring of turbine blades

The robotic system automatically removes burrs, starting from blades for micro-fused turbine that have different torsions.

AUTOMATIC DEBURRING OF EYEGLASSES WITH VISION CONTROL

The robotic system allows to remove the burrs resulting from the installation process of the cores with hinge inside the temples. The deburring of the hinge seat takes place automatically thanks to the application of a sophisticated vision system that, with the use of three cameras, allows to identify at each operation the positioning of the burrs to be removed. Then the robotic system proceeds with the cutting program for the removal of burrs..

DEBURRING

Deburring is the surface finishing process which consists in the removal of defects (burrs) derived from the process of:

  • Casting (any kind);
  • Cutting (any kind);
  • Hot pressing;
  • Cold pressing;
  • Chip removal;
  • Padding;
  • Forging;
  • Pressing;
  • Additive manufacturing.

Usually deburring is the first process to perform in preparation for grinding and polishing.

Typically you can distinguish the deburring process in:

 

  • Aesthetic deburring: Removal of burrs from parts that don’t have a particular application function but they must ensure a certain aesthetic quality standard of surface finishing. Aesthetic deburring typically involves areas such as furniture, fashion and luxury, accessories and much more.
  • Precision deburring: Removal of burrs from components with certain application and instrumental functions. The machining in this case requires special assessments on the process and tools. Precision deburring involves sectors that requires strict tolerances, examples are Automotive, Aeronautics, Aerospace and many more.
  • Hone: It’s a particular deburring process that consists in the immersion of the component in to diamond powder put in rotation. This process is suitable for deburring hard metal tools.

Arcos is able to provide state-of-the-art automatic solutions for deburring processes, designed to adapt to the geometries and materials of the components.
According to the desired final result different solutions are evaluated regarding the tools and the process.

Types of processing

Arcos offers automated systems for robotic deburring, able to optimize processes and reduce cycle times, replacing manual work.

 

Depending on the geometrical complexity of the piece and the result required by the deburring process, different deburring solutions can be applied:

 

  • Deburring with abrasive belts: with the aid of appropriate belts, is exploited the abrasive power of the tool in correspondence with burr.
  • Deburring with precision tools: typically used for precision deburring processes. Hard metal precision tools are mounted on electric or pneumatic rotary spindles. The process may sometimes require several tools to be used in the various deburring phases: in these cases the robotic system provides an automatic tool change warehouse.
