It doesn’t matter what type of manufacturing process you use – CNC, molding, 3D printing, etc, – burrs happen. Burrs and other surface imperfections can affect the durability, function, and performance of a part. They need to be removed.

Abrasive flow deburring, also known as abrasive flow machining or extrude honing, can remove burrs in ways other finishing methods can’t. For instance, abrasive flow machining can finish parts with complex geometries and hard-to-reach inner passages. It removes material in a uniform matter without altering the geometry of a part.

Abrasive flow deburring is used by many¬† Akron, OH businesses in the aerospace, automotive, medical device, consumer electronics, food processing, gunsmithing, and energy production industries.

Abrasive Flow Media

Burrs and other imperfections are removed using an abrasive-laden polymer compound called abrasive flow media or extrude media. Diamond, silicon carbide, and aluminum oxide are just a few of the abrasive materials used in abrasive flow media. Our technicians have the expertise to adjust the viscosity, abrasive particle size, and abrasive concentration of our abrasive flow media to meet the unique requirements of any abrasive deburring job.

During the abrasive deburring process, the abrasive flow media is washed across and through a part using a hydraulic ram, where it erodes away burrs, and smooths a part’s surface. The process can be precisely adjusted to achieve the high levels of accuracy that today’s manufactured products require.
