Automated deburring of metallic workpieces 

The technology of deburring is used throughout the foundry market in order to precisely, quickly and efficiently remove sprues, runners and other process-relevant excess material after components are cast.

Deburring: the technology

So-called flash or projections can form at edges during the various casting processes. These edges, which can be sharp, may not only impair the functioning of the end product but also increase the risk of injury.

For this reason, when manufacturing metal parts, these projections must be removed during the finishing process. This technology is referred to as trimming or deburring.

Automated deburring with robots

After machining, robot systems for deburring ensure clean and efficient removal of burrs from metal workpieces. KUKA offers a broad portfolio for this purpose, ranging from robots to turnkey deburring cells for flexible and efficient deburring work.
