Automate 2019 - This robotic end effector uses the most common hand deburring tool.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” says Dan Merritt, material removal product manager at ATI Industrial Automation. He’s referring to manual deburring processes that use steel hand tools to break sharp edges and deburr holes on machined parts.

In this video, Merritt demonstrates a product called the Compliant Deburring Blade. It’s a robotic end effector that uses a pneumatic cylinder to adjust the force applied to a workpiece by a deburring blade, the same tool used in hand deburring.
