Deburring process / deburring

For almost three decades we have been continuously developing our know how in automated deburring. Whether flexible single robot systems, closed deburring cells or complete production and transfer lines including parts handling: Installations from SHL are globally recognized as reference systems.

In using robot-based systems for deburring and brushing components, users are confronted with a tough decision: Should a tool-guided or a workpiece-guided system be used? Even though both processes offer the same surface finish quality, there are several important and decisive differences to be considered.

Workpiece-guided deburring

In workpiece-guided deburring, the robot takes the component and brings it to the various processing stations.

Workpiece-guided deburring requires more work space. The fixed tool position in this deburring procedure enables a much faster and more flexible way of working as the cycle time is significantly better than in tool-guided deburring.

Tool-guided deburring

In tool-guided deburring, the component is clamped in a stationary fixture and is machined with tools carried by the robot.
