The right cutting burr measurement for every material
Burrs are one of the biggest obstacles to precision manufacturing and the automation of manufacturing processes. They arise in manufacturing processes as plastic deformations in the material and are defined as undesirable material protrusions beyond the workpiece edge. They cause problems in the inspection, assembly and factory automation of metal components.
Accurate measurement of the burr height is essential to characterize burr formation and to determine procedures to avoid or minimize the burr. b+s and FocalSpec have worked together to develop a new, non-contact and optical cutting burr height measurement system for quality control of cutting processes.
