1. What Does Deburring Do?
Any manufactured part will have some unwanted deposit of materials on them.
They are known as burrs.
The process of eliminating the burrs from the manufactured part is known as deburring.
The burrs can be seen as sharp and rough edges in the corners and sides of the parts.
2. What Does A Deburring Tumbler Do?
The machine which is designed to do the deburring process is called as the deburring tumbler.
It will help to remove the burrs from workpieces with minimum labor intervention.
The vibratory tumbler machine and the rotary tumbler machine are the two commonly used tumblers for deburring parts.
2.1 Vibratory Tumbler
The vibratory deburring tumbler is the most commonly used deburring tumbler in many industries.
It will have a large bowl on the top of the machine, which is open.
This bowl rests on s network of springs at the bottom.
There is a motor in the bottom connected to this bowl, and it is the vibration on the bowl that is created with the help of this motor.
2.2 Rotary Barrel Tumbler
The barrel tumblers come with a barrel that is connected to the motor.
The motor gets connected to the central axis of the barrel.
The number of barrels in a rotary barrel finisher machine will vary for different models.
3. Can You Explain The Working Of A Deburring Tumbler Machine?
Let us have a look at the working of both vibratory tumblers as well as the rotary barrel tumblers.
3.1 Working of a Vibratory Deburring Tumbler
First, you need to feed the vibratory deburring tumbler with the parts and the matching vibratory tumbler rocks.
Once you power on the machine, then the motor will make the tumbler vibrate.
So, the vibratory force of the tumbler will make the parts rub with the vibratory tumbler media.
This frictional force between the parts and media will help to remove the burrs from the part.
There will be an additional pressure exerted on the parts and the media if the bowl is a circular one.
The amplitude of vibration of the tumbler bowl can be varied by the user.
3.2 Working of a Rotary Barrel Tumbling Machine
First, you need to load the barrel of the machine with the parts and the appropriate media.
Once you power on the machine, then the motor will make the barrel rotate through its central axis.
So, the parts will slide along with the media inside the barrel.
So, the rotary motion will get converted to the frictional force between the workpieces and the abrasive media.
Thus, the material is removed from the surface of the part for deburring.
The speed of rotation of the tumbler can be varied by the user.
4. What Are The Various Benefits Of Using A Deburring Tumbler For Deburring Parts?
So, we will list the various advantages of using a deburring tumbler machine when compared to the manual deburring methods.
These benefits will make you understand the value of using a deburring tumbler in any business.
4.1 For Efficient Deburring
If you are into the manufacturing part business, then it is essential to ensure that the final workpiece should not have any burrs.
If you are using a manual method for deburring, then the finish consistency will not be there across all the parts.
It is because the manual deburring process is prone to human error.
You can get perfectly deburred parts if you use any of the vibratory deburring tumblers from Inovatec machinery.
4.2 Cost Effective Solution
The operational cost is something that all the business owners wanted to bring down.
The manual method of deburring process demands for lots of labor.
So, it is a labor intensive process.
You need to also invest in annual deburring tools and compounds.
Proper training needs to be given to the laborers for burr removal.
You need only a one time investment on the machine based solution.
You can select the deburring media so that it can be used many times for many years.
Next comes the maintenance part.
Simple hand tools are only required for the maintenance activities of a deburring tumbler from Inovatec machinery.
So, you don’t have to invest anything extra for the maintenance.
So, the process of deburring using the deburring tumblers from Inovatec machinery is a cost effective solution.
4.3 Time Saver

You can save this time if you make use of any of the deburring tumblers from Inovatec.
The machines are capable of deburring large quantities of parts at a time.
So, you can save your valuable time and increase the finishing yield.
4.4 Enhance the Durability and Lifespan of parts
The manufactured parts will have burrs, which are weak spots in part.
So, it will have an impact on the life and durability of the workpieces.
So, the proper removal of burrs from the part will help to enhance the life and durability of the part.
The deburring tumbler helps to remove the burrs from the part in an efficient manner and thereby helps to improve the life of the parts.
4.5 Avoids collision between parts
The use of tumbling media in the deburring tumbler helps to avoid the collision between the parts inside the machine.
The tumbling media ensures that there is no contact between two parts.
So, it helps to prevent the part damage due to part to part collisions.
4.6 Enhance Tumbling Performance
The deburring tumblers are designed in such a way that it ensures that the media and the parts are in contact all the time.
So, the frictional force between the media and parts will always be present during the operation of the machine.
So, it enhances tumbling performance.
4.7 Batch processing capability
The deburring tumblers from Inovatec come with the batch processing capability.
It allows you to finish different types of parts at the same time in batches.

6. What Do You Mean By Dry Deburring And Wet Deburring?
If you use only the media or along with a dry compound, then the deburring process is called as the dry deburring.
If you add any liquid along with media, parts, and compound, then the process is said to be a wet deburring.
Usually, tap water is added for the wet deburring process.
You need to check the pH level of water and ensure that it is suitable for the wet deburring process.
Sometimes, you will have to add a rust inhibiting compound for the wet deburring process.
It is to avoid the corrosive effect of water on metals.
Drying of parts is essential after the wet deburring process.
If you don’t dry it, then the part may get corroded, or a layer of oxide will be formed on the part surface.
