ATI’s line of Radially-Compliant (RC) Deburring Tools, also known as Flexdeburr TM, are robust, high-speed and lightweight air turbine-driven deburring units for deburring aluminum, plastic, steel, etc. with a robot or CNC machine. The RC Deburring Tool is especially suited for removal of parting lines and flash from parts. However, its flexible design allows it to be used in a wide variety of applications.
The RC Deburring Tool’s pneumatically controlled, articulated design allows the cutting bit to follow the part profile and compensate for surface irregularities while maintaining a constant, settable force. This allows high feed rates with uniform quality in any orientation. The tool also requires no oil, allowing clean exhaust air to be vented directly into the work environment.
Compliance is supported by air pressure applied to the shaft of the unit and is used to perform consistent deburring on irregular part patterns. The motor’s internal governor maintains high spindle speeds for optimum surface finish. The tools offer up to ± 9mm of compliance. The RC Deburring Tool also utilizes standard industrial tungsten-carbide bits which allows for adaptation to changing assembly lines and part requirements.
