Remove Inconsistencies and Elevate Your Part's Finish
Robotic deburring is an application where PushCorp's EOAT equipment excels. Our precise force and constant speed end effectors account for part variability and abrasive wear. Therefore, manual processes can be automated easier than ever.
In non-automated finishing processes, operators rely on visual inspections. Not only is this a tedious process, but it leaves the finish completely up to the individual doing the inspection.
The skill level of these workers is extremely variable due to the high turnover in the industry. As a result, manually finished parts are inconsistent, being either over or under-processed. In addition to an inferior finished part, non-automated processes use a higher volume of abrasives. For example, if the operator applies too much force the abrasive media glazes over. Conversely, the abrasive will not re-fracture if too little force is applied. With an automated system, not only is the part quality significantly better, but abrasive life can increase by 200-300%.

As an illustration, this video shows how effortless robotic deburring can be. In fact, a robot paired with a PushCorp force compliance device and servo spindle is just what you need to automate your material removal application.
This video showcases an AFD310-2 and an STC1503-BT30. Together, this equipment is able to quickly and efficiently deburr the edges leaving a high quality surface finish.
There are two key elements to this process. First, the AFD310 applies consistent force. Next, the STC1503 high-speed servo spindle rotates the abrasive at a constant speed. Together, they work seamlessly to create beautifully finished parts time and time again.
Additionally, high-quality abrasives should be used to achieve the most consistent finish. Low caliber media may cut well at the beginning, but will often degrade quickly. Therefore, we recommend the following companies:
