Fill Wheel Predeburring Deburring 800

Automated Pre-Deburring of Parts

Aug. 5, 2020
The deburring wheel uses rotating milling cutters to remove burrs, sprues, pins, etc. up to 100 mm high, with a robot or manipulator to present each face of the part for surface treatment.

FILL GmbH, the Austrian developer of process machinery and manufacturing plant technology, offers a "pre-deburring" machine that automatically and easily knocks burrs or other surface protrusions up to 100 mm high from steel forgings using rotating milling cutters.

Castings are presented to the rotating knock-off wheel by means of a robot or a manipulator. Depending on the design of the gripper, all sides of the forging can be freed from burrs, sprues, pins, etc.

The deburring wheel can be operated as a standalone machine or in combination with several machines, as required. The system also can be configured to include a robot-guided deburring wheel.

Predeburring of parts increases the service life of subsequent grinding processes thanks to consistent height for the residual burrs. Depending on the thickness of the burrs, a deburring wheel can perform the complete deburring step, fully replacing any subsequent grinding process.

The individually mounted impact blades are made of highly resistant powder-metallurgical tool steel for guaranteed maximum service life.
