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

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?
