New deburring system from Abtex for green Powder Metallurgy parts

April 22, 2015

Abtex Corporation of Dresden, NY, USA, has announced a new machine for deburring Powder Metallurgy parts in the green state. Green parts, those that have been pressed but not yet sintered, are much less expensive to deburr than the same parts after they are hardened in the sintering process, stated Abtex.

The new machine uses brushes in an innovative configuration that deburrs opposite sides of a part in a single pass, accounting for further savings. The machine/brush interface is specially designed to remove only the dangerous burrs, preserving each part’s unique geometry. Brushes can be easily customised 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 is 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 25 cm (10 inches) to provide an efficient interface with existing equipment.
