Burr Management in Machining

Date : 12 to 13 December, 2019

@ Motherson Techno Tools Limited, A-2, Sector-84, Noida - 201301


As long as there has been metal cutting, there have been burrs—an unwanted side effect of the process. Barring a revolutionary change, burr formation will always be a problem. With a few exceptions, conventional machining techniques always produce burrs. Burr prevention requires both conventional and nonconventional approaches. However, even when burrs are not produced, sharp edges left at the end of the machining process generally are not acceptable and require edge treatment. Burr removal represent unnecessary cost to the industry in various forms such as additional manufacturing, compensation, service, recall, and spoiling of the company image. Therefore, in most cases, it is a must either to remove or to secure the burr in order to prevent it from being detached from the part.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a two day programme on Burr management in Machining on 12-13 December 2019 at Motherson Techno Tools Limited, Noida. This program will give a clear knowledge to participants on Burr definition, burr geometry, Burr formation mechanisms, Burr types and standards for burrs & edges. Various methods on burr less operations, Burr prevention and Burr minimization technique will be discussed.

Focus Areas

  • Definition for Burr
  • Deburring process enhancement
  • Burr geometry
  • Burr formation
  • Cross hole deburring
  • Availability of standards for burr & edges
  • Automation of deburring using robots
  • Burr prevention
  • Non traditional deburring processes with case studies - Thermal Energy Machining & Electro Chemical Machining
  • Burr minimization
  • Design for edge quality
  • Eliminating waste
  • Use of better cutting tools
  • Practical demonstration on burr generation, prevention and minimization on CNC operations.
  • Financial impact on getting rid of burrs
  • Live Demo of innovative deburring tools in CNC VMC.

Key Take Aways

       After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -
1. Define the burr and edge quality in the process and able to understand how it affects fit, function and safe use of product.
2. Plan & implement burr-less operations or minimise burr in manufacturing.
3. Gain knowledge on various conventional and non conventional methods for burr prevention and burr removal.
4. Get awareness on various equipments and processes practiced in manufacturing industry and their availability in the market.
5. Cost benefits and manpower reduction due to burr prevention activities.
