A Review of Burr Formation in Machining [chapter]

D. Dornfeld, S. Min
2009 Burrs - Analysis, Control and Removal  
One of the major concerns in deburring technology is centered on how to predict the size and shape of burrs to insure uniform removal and, if this is possible, how to design the process or product in advance to minimize or control the burr size. This paper reviews some of the research done over the past several years on this important topic. The paper includes a discussion of burrs in conventional machining, process planning for burr minimization as well as micromachining applications.

Ultimately, engineering software tools must be available so that design and manufacturing engineers can use this knowledge interactively in their tasks to yield a mechanical part whose design and production is optimized for burr prevention along with the other critical specifications. A review of the background to burr control is given first. 3
