Mate'sRollerball Deburr tool is
a solution for eliminating burr removal on punched parts. Designed to deburr
mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum sheet material in any thickness, the
Rollerball Deburr tool does the burr removal automatically as part of the
punching process. No off-line, manual burr removal needed and no special
off-line tools are needed.
Mate's Rollerball Deburr
is designed for Thick Turret and Trumpf Style applications. The tool
incorporates Mate's proprietary Rollerball technology that uses the extended
programming capabilities of punch presses operating in the x and y axis with
the ram down.
Using a special ball in
both the upper and lower part of the tool, the Rollerball Deburr
pushes the burr away creating a slight radius on the punched edge. Smooth to
the touch, the deburred edge is consistent and has a finished appearance. All
part contours can be processed with the Rollerball Deburr tool, including
small, tight corners.
Rollerball Deburr comes as
a complete set, including springs for adjusting tension appropriate for the
An envelope is a common packaging item, usually made of thin flat material. It is designed to contain a flat object, such as a letter or card.
Traditional envelopes are made from sheets of paper cut to one of three shapes: a rhombus, a short-arm cross, or a kite. These shapes allow for the creation of the envelope structure by folding the sheet sides around a central rectangular area. In this manner, a rectangle-faced enclosure is formed with an arrangement of four flaps on the reverse side.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
