The problems associated with hand deburring cross-drilled and back-faced holes have been eliminated by the Orbitool, now available in the UK from Finishing Techniques Ltd. The Orbitool is the only in-process tool capable of removing burrs from the intersection of holes and is ideal for use on CNC machines, freeing the operator to concentrate on quality and high levels of throughput.

As many engineers appreciate, the cost of hand deburring can be greater than the cost of the manufactured part. Besides the increased time taken to hand deburr, it is near impossible to achieve consistent results - every part needing rigorous inspection - a process commonly open to human error. Orbitool removes these problems.

The Orbitool is used like other cutting tools on the lathe turret or tool magazine of a drilling machine, making it quick and easy to deploy. It shortens cycle times while achieving consistently high quality results and reduces the need to inspect every part. It also removes the need to batch process parts and eliminates process queues.

Jonathan Dean, Finishing Techniques' managing director, explained, "During my 24 years in the supply of surface finishing equipment to industry, the question engineers always raise is: 'do you have a product which deburrs holes?'. Finally, I can confidently say yes. I am pleased to be able to supply the Orbitool to the UK, a product manufactured and patented by JW Done in the USA. This is a tool that really does make a difference to the bottom line for manufacturers."

The Orbitool is available with a range of options that allow it to be easily tailored to individual operations. Technical specifications and online demonstrations can be downloaded from UK pricing information is available from Finishing Techniques 01706 825 819.
