“Everything has a limit”
Boundaries are also given to the thermal deburring process:
- The burr formation must be formed corresponding to the material. This means
that ferrous materials with a low thermal conductivity can have a stronger burr
formation than light metals. For light metals, the opposite is true.
- The application area of the “thermal-chemical deburring” is limited by several
factors. The fields of application are bounded by the material of the component
and the size of the burrs. And the thermal impact of the workpiece depends on
the required deburring quality. Usually, certain bounds may not be exceeded.
- The material must be oxidable. Exceptional case: Plastics, in this case the burr
- The workpiece may not be larger than suitable for the current biggest deburring
