Deburring Tools

What Is a Deburring Tool?

 

Deburring tools are handheld tools used to remove burrs from the raw edges and holes of a product. This process creates a smooth finish from a rough cut so that the item can effectively serve its intended purpose. Using a burr removal tool significantly adds to the safety of the finished object, since it removes jagged edges that could cut the tool user’s skin, catch clothing, or damage other tools or parts. Hand deburring tools, like the one offered by Slice®, are commonplace in both industrial and household settings, as burrs are seen on manufactured items as well as homemade models or objects created through at-home 3-D printing. Managers and safety officers in industrial settings should look for deburring tools that are durable and feature ergonomic handles to maintain a safe and efficient working environment.

 

What Is a Deburring Tool Used For?

 

A deburring tool is used to scrape away excess material from the surfaces and edges of a raw product. Many different kinds of manufactured materials may require burr removal, including raw sheet metal, aluminum, pvc piping, copper sheeting, steel machine components, and mold-injected plastics. A single deburring tool can generally be relied upon to deburr all of those materials, meaning that a pvc deburring tool and a copper deburring tool are, in fact, one and the same. From smoothing raw steel parts to deburring plastic bins, the deburring process ensures a product will function properly and safely while showcasing a professional looking finish. Quality deburring tools for metal and plastic should feature a thick and durable blade without a sharp edge in order to easily remove burrs without damaging the raw product. 

 

Who Should Use a Deburring Tool?

 

Deburring tools are typically used by manufacturing employees in industrial settings. However, Slice hand deburring tools can be used in both the workplace and at home by recreationalists involved in modeling or at-home 3D printing to create professional-looking finished products.

 

How to Use a Deburring Tool

 

Deburring tools are used to remove excess material from the edges or surface of a raw, unfinished product and are relatively straightforward to use. Simply slide the blade at an angle along the edge to create friction and scrape away the burrs, leaving a smooth and even finish. Slice offers two kinds of deburring tool blades: the convex blade, which is ideal for scraping along straight edges, and the concave blade, perfect for curved edges and holes. The Slice Deburring Tool features a comfortable, ambidextrous grip that allows for better control over your work and prevents accidental slipping or damage. This tool is designed for easy and safe blade replacement without the use of additional tools.

 

What Type of Blades Do Slice Deburring Tools Have?

 

All Slice blades are comprised of 100 percent zirconium oxide, a ceramic material engineered to be harder and exponentially more durable than steel blades. With their exceptionally durable composition, a Slice blade can be used as a deburring tool for plastic and metal alike. The Slice ceramic deburring tool blade is non-sparking, non-conductive, non-magnetic, lasts up to 11 times longer than metal blades, and will never rust. 

 

The 10482 Slice Deburring Tool is compatible with two types of deburring blades: the 10483 convex blade and the 10484 concave blade.The 10483 convex is the default blade that comes with the deburring tool and is best suited for scraping burrs off of straight edges and flat surfaces. The 10484 concave blade is a great tube deburring tool due to its curved shape and ideal for use on rounded edges or the inside of holes. Switching between blades is made simple by Slice’s innovative blade change design, providing users with an efficient and safe way to achieve optimum deburring results.

 

How to Replace Blades in the Slice Ceramic Deburring Tool

 

Replacing or exchanging blades within the Slice Deburring Tool is extremely simple and safe. Blades can be replaced due to excessive wear or exchanged for a blade type more suitable to the task at hand. This deburring tool’s innovative design allows users to easily and safely change blades without the use of additional tools or the risk of injury. The deburring blade within the tool can be removed by pulling the blade out from the end and pushing the new one back in. The engineering pinch point will keep the new blade secure. To take advantage of the tool’s internal blade holder and keep a spare blade ready for use, push in the handle’s button and slide the outer sheath off the orange blade holder. 

 

What About Using a Utility Knife as a Burr Removal Tool?

 

While utility knives may be capable of removing some larger burrs from unfinished products, they present a high risk for accidental injury to the user and will not necessarily produce a smooth final product. What sets a Slice ceramic deburring tool apart from traditional metal blades is the unique composition of its zirconium oxide blade. Using a ceramic blade rather than a metal utility knife ensures long-term tool durability and safety for both yourself and the material you’re working with.

 

Slice Hand deburring tools are a safer choice for both the user and the raw material the user is working with because:

 

  • Slice deburring blades are designed to scrape and not cut, leaving a smooth edge or surface 

  • Slice deburring blades do not have an edge, and are therefore far less likely to cause an accidental injury in the way that a utility knife is prone to do

  • Slice deburring blades are extremely durable, unlike a knife’s edge which may quickly dull during the deburring process and impede its ability to cleanly cut through other materials

  • Unlike a utility knife, a Slice deburring blade can be easily replaced by simply removing the blade holder from the sheath and swapping the used blade for a new one

 

Deburring Tool Safety

 

Reducing the potential for injury and damage to users and finished products respectively is an important factor to consider when choosing the right tool. This is especially true in industrial settings where an accident can present a financial risk in terms of employee injury or product damage. With a Slice deburring tool, employees have a lower rate of accidental injury due to the edgeless blade design, the safe and easy method for replacing blades, and the deburring tool’s ergonomic handle. These innovative safety features allow for fewer injury occurrences and increased efficiency.

 

The durability of the ceramic deburring blade and its lack of a sharpened edge prevents accidental scratches or deep cuts to the material being deburred. Using a manual deburring tool rather than an electric deburring wheel or sand paper allows the user more control over the deburring process and reduces the risk of unsightly scratches or accidental injury.

 

Why Choose Slice Tools?

 

Slice sets itself apart through its unique blade composition and emphasis on safety in all of its tools’ designs. All Slice blades are comprised of 100 percent zirconium oxide, an extremely hard ceramic material which is designed to last 11 times longer than metal. This blade is housed in an ergonomic nylon handle with a slim profile that allows maneuverability for awkward angles without putting strain on hand muscles. Because Slice blades are so durable, you’ll be replacing them less often than you would a metal blade. No extra tools are required to change the blade, increasing the efficiency and safety of the blade changing process. The 10482 offers extra blade storage in its handle, allowing the user to easily carry both styles to switch quickly in the middle of a job. Slice deburring tools also come with a safety cap that conveniently fits on the end of the handle so it won’t get lost while you’re working.
