What is XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path?

“XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path” consists of the spherical cutter specially designed for deburring and the tailor-made path data, which is a series of coordinates.

The combination of the Cutter and the Path enables CNC back burr deburring.
It prevents secondary burrs and enables uniform edge shape, achieving high-quality deburring performance. Why don’t you try our CNC deburring solution which is “no programming”, “no manual work” and “no frustration”?

Features of XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path

Super high-speed machining 5 to 10 times faster than conventional tools Details

High quality Uniform edge shape by consistent deburring amountDetails

Long tool life Using the entire cutting blade by constantly shifting the contact point Details Details

Super high-speed machining

There are 3 holes crossing on the main bore, however there was only 1 tool magazine available on the ATC and thus, we had to deburr manually.
Due to increase in the production quantity, we had to shorten the cycle time and considered to adapt a special machine. We ended up with adapting XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path, which can solve various problems at once.
1 Cutter supports various edges in different sizes and shapes, thus it solves the issue of the open space of the tool magazine, which enabled CNC deburring.
Since the Cutter needs to make only 1 lap around the edge, the cycle time was decreased more than we had expected. We could save the cycle time as much as 30% and successfully enhanced the production quantity.

High-quality finish without manual work!

We used to use a spring-type deburring tool, however secondary burrs were generated and manual work was necessary for finishing.
XEBEC Back Burr Cutter & Path suppresses secondary burrs and achieves consistent deburring amount. Thanks to this product, CNC deburring is fully achieved and the clean appearance is highly evaluated.
In addition, the Path data is prepared by XEBEC, which enabled to adapt to the production line immediately after the testing.

Long Tool Life

CNC deburring was already achieved using a blade-type deburring tool, however the tool life and the tool cost were the bottleneck.
We found XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path at a trade show and decided to adapt it because of the reasonable price.
It turned out that the tool life is as many as 20,000 holes per piece and this is because the cutting blade is entirely used by constantly shifting its contact point.
Due to its long tool life, we successfully saved the tool cost by 40%.

FAQs

What size of burrs can be removed?

The rough standards are:
・For a cross hole diameter φ1: The root thickness of burr is about 0.03 to 0.07 mm using XC-08-A.
・For a cross hole diameter φ6: The root thickness of burr is about 0.1 to 0.2 mm using XC-58-A.

Is it possible to remove a drill cap burr?

Depending on the hardness, however it was successfully removed at the internal testing.

In order to extend the tool life, it is recommended to minimize burr size before using the Cutter and Path to avoid chipping of the Cutter.

Is it possible to compile the coordinates in the Path?

We don’t modify the Path data after the delivery. A customer can modify the Path data since this is delivered as the coordinates’ data.

Example)
If a customer uses a Path data for incremental mode and want to change the start point.

*1 This example shows a case when incremental command point group data for XEBEC Back Burr Path is used. Therefore incremental command is executed in the block preceding the XEBEC Back Burr Path. This is not included in the provided files.
*2 Because incremental command was executed in the block preceding the XEBEC Back Burr Path, return to the absolute command which are the modal information prior to call the sub program. This is not included in the provided files.

I have a different edge shape which is not on the list above. Is it possible to make a Path data for it?

Please send your inquiry to us as it may be possible to make a customized Path data.

Can I use the Path with other companies’ tool which has the same diameter?

It is not permitted to use any tools other than XEBEC Back Burr Cutter when using XEBEC Path.
This is defined in the Path usage conditions.

Can I purchase only the Cutter, not with the Path?

Yes, it is possible. However, the maximum capability, including the deburring performance and the tool life, can be performed when the Cutter is used in combination with the XEBEC Path. It is recommended because it has the greatest effect in terms of quality and life.

What is the edge shape and the dimensions after deburring?

Edge shape

The spherical Cutter is adapted to maximize deburring performance of a cross hole. After deburring, the edge will not be a C- or R-chamfered edge in a precise sense. The edge shape will be finished as the figures below.

From the reasons above, we define the width after deburring with the Cutter as “the deburring amount”.

Deburring amount ( ≈linear distance)

5 deburring amounts are offered for each Path. Select a deburring amount depending on processing accuracy such as a hole diameter and position.
