Tooling for automated crosshole deburring
- Published: January 10, 2018
Heule Tool Corp. has launched its COFA-X tooling, what the company describes as the first tooling system for removing burrs consistently from interior uneven bore edges with large intersections, such as valves, fittings, hydraulic manifolds, and more.
Designed for crossholes with an identical or nearly identical diameter crossing each other, bores which merge into one another, and crossing bores with offset centres, COFA-X completely eliminates secondary burrs, says the company.
This proven design reduces costs and improves cycles times for operations that were previously only possible with manual deburring. The COFA-X system is effective on fittings, hydraulic manifolds, and other components with 1:1 ratio of holes.
This unique tooling is pre-assembled with spring-loaded blade geometry to allow wither front or back cutting. COFA-X tools are fully customized and built for application-specific projects. They are suitable for bore diameters of 4.0 mm and larger.
