"Finishing of Edges-Burr Management in Machining"

Date : 27 to 28 February, 2020

@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore

Last date for registration 20 February 2020


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 non-conventional 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 2 day seminar on “Finishing of edges-Burr management in machining“ on 27 - 28 February 2020 at Bangalore. 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
  • Burr geometry
  • Burr formation
  • Availability of standards for burr & edges
  • Burr prevention
  • Burr minimization
  • Design for edge quality
  • Eliminating waste
  • Use of better cutting tools
  • Practical demonstration on burr generation, prevention and minimization on CNC operations
  • Deburring process enhancement
  • Cross hole deburring
  • Automation of deburring using robots
  • Non traditional deburring processes with case studies
    • Thermal Energy Machining
    • Electro Chemical Machining
  • Financial impact on getting rid of burrs
  • Live Demo of innovative deburring tools in CNC VMC

Key Take Aways
