Deburring with high pressure water-engineering
Is applied to machined surfaces. The deburring is performed either by a single brush or by a rotary planetary head equipped with multiple brushes. The deburring machine can be a single deburring station connected to another machine (normally a washer), used for deburring one specific face of a part, or several stations designed for deburring of all faces of a specific part (engine block, head, crankshaft, etc.).
Nevertheless, it is possible to deburr parts in flexible cells with CNC control.
High pressure deburring
This application is used in parts where the brush deburring cannot be achieved or is not recommended. Examples are surfaces with OFFSET areas and deep holes with intersections. Deburring is obtained by the power of a water spray with more between 200 and 600 bar (2900 and 8700 psi). It is commonly used for blocks, heads and crankshafts, for deburring of intersections of lubrication holes, oil galleries and water jackets.
It is common to see this application with one or more robots to apply the high pressure jet to specific areas of the part.
