Turbo-Finish for Lean Deburring and Finishing of Complex Rotating Parts

Turbo-Finish for Lean Deburring and Finishing of Complex Rotating Parts

TECHNOLOGY EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.  This technology is currently used in the United States to deburr and contour the edges of complex parts, and to create isotropic surface finishes essential in finishing many complex parts.  Unlike single-point-of-contact

Dr. Michael Massarsky, inventor of Turbo-Finish
machining technologies the technology is relatively simple to control once process parameters for a given part have been developed, and thus enjoys the attributes of reliability and repeatability of simpler mechanical (vs. digital feedback) technologies. However, It accomplishes uniform results on very complex parts that often cannot be achieved reliably by other much more complex, processes.

This material edited and annotated by SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) member and past-president  LaRoux Gillespie, CMfgE, PE  (  laroux1@earthlink.net ) will be of interest to anyone interested in the importance of deburring and surface conditioning to critical component functionality.  Much of the discussion here centers around the risk involved in failing to adequately address edge finish and surface conditioning issues in aeronautical and aerospace manufacturing.  Continue reading “Compiled Problems Caused by Burrs and Sharp Edges.” [Aerospace Industry] by LaRoux Gillespie, CMfgE, PE

Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts?  Do you need to be doing that?  Are you sure?

Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts? Do you need to be doing that? Are you sure?

a great many parts are being hand-deburred currently because the conventional mass finishing method(s) being used in the shop are incapable of exerting sufficient abrasive media pressure against edges and surfaces to remove unwanted and undesirable projections, sharp edges and burrs.  In many cases, it is possible to minimize hand-deburring procedures by utilizing a higher energy method that makes use of centrifugal force to propel abrasive material and rub away at edges and surfaces with dramatically more strength.   Continue reading Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts?

and deburring and manual polishing are the bane of many machine shop’s and machining department’s existence. What can be done to minimize the need for these tedious, time-consuming, labor-intensive production bottle-necks? In many cases the need for hand-deburring operations can be reduced greatly with high-energy and high-intensity isotropic finishing operations. See below several examples below where laborious deburring procedures have been reduced or eliminated. Continue reading What can Hands-Free Isotropic Deburring and Micro-Finishing do for your parts?
