What is Deburring?

As metal parts are fabricated, they undergo a variety of metalworking processes that can introduce burrs. Untreated metal parts may have jagged edges that can pose a risk to parts’ quality and safety. Deburring with use of electropolishing provides the needed solution. This metal finishing treatment enhances parts’ performance, improves part appearance, all while maintaining the parts’ shape without warping or distortion. Want to learn more about deburring?

Comparing Methods for Deburring Metal

When metal parts are stamped or machined, they may be left with ragged edges and burrs that impede their performance. Burrs on a sharp metal cutting implement, for example, may hinder its ability to cut smoothly. Burrs may also break off during use, posing hazards when metal tools are used in medical or food applications—broken-off flecks of metal could make their way into food or a medical patient.
