Deburring and edge rounding
D&M offer a full deburring and edge rounding service on all laser cut items where required. Our wide variety of tools and machines are on hand to ensure all parts leave here smooth and to a high standard.
Our state-of-the-art deburring machine lets us quickly and effectively remove burrs and create round edges using the latest cross belt technology. In addition to deburring, we also offer rumbling services. We have installed the latest Walther Trowal rumbling machine, enabling us to provide a complete deburring solution. The size of this rumbler means that we have a large operating capacity.
We also offer more involved manual deburring; this process ensures that all pieces manually deburred are completed to the highest standards. We have various tools to ensure that all edges and surfaces can be smoothed down.
Our capabilities are suitable for any size of business needs.
If you can’t see the information you need or have a question about the capabilities of our machines, get in touch. We work with trusted partners to ensure that we can always meet everyone’s individual needs; no job is too big or small.

What is deburring?
Deburring refers to removing sharp edges or burrs from a material leaving behind smooth edges. The most common methods that result in burrs are milling, drilling, engraving and turning. You can expect deburring during procedures such as laser/plasma cutting, punching and shearing.
You could adopt various methods to complete deburring, including manual deburr, electrochemical, thermal energy, cryogenic and mechanical. We use a range of deburring methods, including manual deburring and machine deburring to make sure that all our products are completed to a high standard. We understand that every job is different and each part or project needs to be treated accordingly which is why we have different methods of deburring available onsite.
Deburring has many advantages that make it the perfect choice for your sheet metal needs.
The cutting process is likely to leave sharp edges behind; deburring smooths down those edges, making it easier to handle the product without risk of injury. It also helps with the safety of other machines; the rough edges may get caught on other parts, causing issues further down the fabrication process.
A machined part which has burrs is essentially flawed. Flaws can cause issues further down the line, such as cracking, but they can also interfere with other products and measurements. When sheets are stacked, burrs may scratch other metal sheets, ruining the finish. Burrs can affect how the part functions by potentially causing jams, increasing user risks, and slowing production time.
When deburring parts, you can ensure that all parts will be consistently finished to a high standard.

Burr is the rough, unwanted edges or ridges on the metal formed after fabrication. It is most commonly caused by cutting or welding processes. For the work to be completed to a high standard, burrs must be removed.
Burrs are removed using a process called deburring. We use various methods to remove burrs from our fabricated parts; deburring discs, rumblers and sanders. We have automatic, semi-automatic, and manual machines to ensure that the result is always of the highest standard.
HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome) is caused by exposure to vibrations; it can take as little as 6months for HAVS to take hold. HAVS can cause pain, tingling and total loss of feeling, loss of fine motor skills, reduced strength and grip, muscle wastage and Reynaud’s disease. This can affect the user’s ability to work and do little tasks such as buttoning up a shirt. HAVS is a preventable disease but not a curable disease.
We use HAVSco monitoring systems to monitor each user’s vibration dosage. They monitor the vibrations imparted on the hands and fingers. These systems then give a visual alarm if the user has exceeded the action limit or legal limit of HSE points for the task, telling the user to stop.
Ceramic media can be used for a variety of finishing applications, their bulk density allows them to exert a high pressure on the parts and therefore easily remove burrs. It also leaves a bright surface finish on the parts once completed.
