How to quickly remove steel burr on OD
I am looking for advice into what might be some of my options to quickly remove a small burr following a stamping process. The parts are stamped at rates up to 30/ppm. I would hope to deburr at a similar pace. The burr is on the OD of a circular part, OD is approx.
We are switching from 3 independent stamping dies to a progressive die to eliminate work done on lathes. So obviously additional machining will not be a good option.
If anyone has any help, ideas, or suggestions I would be glad to hear them.
Why don't try vibropolishing. Good luck

Quite a few people have been raving to me about thermal deburring, in which parts are packed in a cylinder and then deburred using a small thermal charge. The word is that the parts come out looking wonderful.Arend D. Hart

We will be running through over 3000 parts a day. Is vibrofinishing capable of handling that type of volume.Jason Kuhn
You got some good advice from 2 sources; however, I think if you have another operation after the burr removal, you might want to consider an in-line mass finishing system. Basically as the parts come out of the machine, they go into a bowl or in-line tub, travel the distance to the discharge exit and out. You can also go into another machine to dry the parts and out in the same manner.
