What is graining & deburring?
Metal that has been worked on using machines may be left with small imperfections or ‘burrs’ – which is where graining and de-burring comes in. These processes will see those imperfections removed and the surface of the metal transformed into a sleek, uniform part that is ready for a wide range of applications.
We can tailor our graining and de-burring services to suit the needs of a wide range of customers, working with you to ensure that you are happy with the finish of your metal parts. To find out more, please get in touch with our team today.
Graining is a practical method to remove surface irregularities whilst imparting a quality directional finish. The process is often required for aesthetic reasons by many of our customers to provide a high-level, uniform finish across the entire surface area of the component.
Sometimes it is sensible to use pre-grained material, which does incur a higher up-front cost. However, due to a components blank size and intricacy, graining the cut profile instead, as a secondary operation, can prove in many cases to be more cost-effective and provide better flexibility by avoiding paying for the scrap to be grained.
How does it work?
On our Timesavers 22 series 900 WW, components are placed onto a revolving conveyor, which then passes under two rotating graining belts moving in opposite directions until the desired finish is achieved. This kind of graining process is very clean, relatively silent and results in a regular even grain.
Depending on the thickness of the material being processed, the roller heights can be moved with very fine adjustment, we are able to change the position by 0.01mm ensuring a uniform finish across the entire component. The two graining belts used on the rollers are available in various grit finishes depending on the customers specifications.
