This "hands on" guide has been written for all levels of manufacturing professionals responsible for providing a competitive advantage in their use of deburring and edge finishing methods. Five basic approaches for achieving cost reduction in deburring are offered: product design, tool design, process design, burr prevention, and minimization and burr removal. Discussions of cost/quality tradeoffs are integrated throughout the in-depth technical treatments of approximately 100 mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, and manual procedures. Also included are some newer techniques from emerging countries such as China. The book includes considerations of current environmental and safety issues. Evolving international industrial standards and guidelines for establishing plant-specific deburring standards are covered.
