Got a shot at picking up a new customer. Parts are medical. Nothing
critical, just that standards are high.
Simple shaft, 303, ground to an 8-16 microinch finish. What I'm asking
for suggestions on, is I have to mill two flats each end, and while I
will of course optimize my process for a minimal burr, there is going to
be sharp corners. Print naturally calls for all sharp edges to be
deburred. I know this is a no sweat part for many shops, but I've not
had to worry about doing cosmetic deburring before. In the markets I
generally serve, vibratory deburring or scotchbrite wheel suffices. But
quantities are well beyond what I want to do with scotchbrite and
vibratory is not an option.
These will be turned, chamfered, parted off in an Omniturn, shallow
flats in the mill, leaving 4 sharp edges per end.
How would you all take off the sharp edge whilst best preserving the
nice ground finish?
