An overview of FLADDER® deburring system from Fladder — Hansen & Hundebol Inc. and its capabilities.
The FLADDER® deburring system employs an entirely new method based on a principle which is fundamentally different from those of traditional deburring methods.
The abrasive tool in the FLADDER® deburring system from Fladder — Hansen & Hundebol Inc. (Atlanta, GA) is a flexible tool with a number of slats or strips of abrasive material which rub tightly against the part, closely following its contours. When it comes to choosing the right method there are a number of choices, depending on the desired quality — and of course the allowed budget!
Figures 1 through 4 (enlarge illustration on the right) show a simplified illustration of the different principles: Spindles are shown with arrows indicating the rotating direction, a dark-blue arrow marks the infeed direction, and the part is shown with profiles or recesses marked A and B.
FIGURE 1: PARALLEL SPINDLES — COUNTER-ROTATING
Shows a very simple method: two counter-rotating spindles. In many cases a sensible and economical solution, but it is very likely that the edges A and B will not be uniformly deburred, as the deburring is performed along the A edge and across the B edge.
