Abtex Introduces Machine for Deburring Powdered-Metal Parts
April 27, 2015
Abtex Corporation recently announced a new machine for deburring powdered-metal parts when they’re still in the “green” state, prior to sintering. Green parts are less expensive to deburr than the same parts after they’re hardened in the sintering process.
The new machine uses Abtex brushes in a configuration that deburrs opposite sides of any part in a single pass, accounting for further savings. The machine/brush interface is designed to remove only the dangerous burrs, preserving each part’s unique geometry. Brushes can be customized for the specific deburring task.
The machine is also made for easy and efficient interface with existing equipment in any powdered-metal manufacturing environment: It’s built for 24/7 use, and designed to communicate both upstream and down; it features a chassis that can be raised and lowered by up to 10 inches to provide an interface with existing equipment; it’s built on casters for easy movement around the manufacturing floor.
