Deburring can be one of the most important, time consuming, and expensive operations – especially if your shop is still doing it manually. Automated deburring machines (like Timesavers’ rotary brush machines) eliminate the hassle and give you uncompromised speed, accuracy, and consistency to deliver better results.
Keep reading to learn how your shop can benefit by investing in a rotary brush:
What is a Rotary Brush?
A deburring machine is designed to eliminate burrs, sharp edges, and other imperfections from parts by applying motion or pressure to remove minute amounts of material.
With rotary brushes, workpieces get pushed against rotating, reciprocating, or oscillating brushes to clear away flaws and produce a perfectly finished piece. Rotary brushes can be safely used with a range of materials including stainless steel, aluminum, mild steel, and copper without harming coatings, plating, and ink-marked parts.
6 Benefits of Using a Rotary Brush
- Can Deburr Exotic Materials: This includes materials such as laser-guard and cladded aluminum.
- 360 Degree Attack: By attacking the burrs from 360 degrees it can easily deburr holes, edges leading and trailing, and shapes equally.
- Large Dwell Time: As the rotary brush rotates, the brushes are counter rotating and the entire carousel spins. This creates a large dwell time for the brushes to work on the material.
- Can Run Dry: There’s no need for coolant. Different materials can be run without changing the brush and parts stay dry, which eliminates the need for expensive drying processes.
- Comes with a Vacuum Conveyor Belt: That will allow for the running of small parts.
- Consumable Costs are Significantly Less than Belt Sanders: It’s easily 1/2 to 1/3 the cost.
