Vibro Deburring At Supersheen
Vibratory finishing is something that our company is proud to specialise in, focusing particularly on vibro deburring and a range of other services. So what is vibro deburring?
In short, vibro deburring is a process used to remove sharp burrs on materials to give them a smooth and uniform finish. Burrs can significantly impact the functionality, efficiency, and lifespan of a component. If burrs are present, they have the potential to reduce the resistance to fractures, increase unwanted friction, jeopardise lubrication, increase the risk of corrosion, and even render the part unsafe for handling alongside many other risks. So, with this in mind, smoothing the rough edges and ridges of components is incredibly important.
The Benefits Of Vibro Deburring
Needless to say, there are of course other types of techniques which can also deburr parts including manual, thermal and electrochemical processes. However, vibratory deburring is one of the stand out procedures and it has some notable advantages.
Some of the benefits of vibro deburring include:
- Suitable for use on fragile and delicate components
- Can be used to complete large scale projects quickly and efficiently
- Due to requiring little labour, the process is very cost effective
- It can reduce imperfections of parts and therefore improve the cosmetic appeal

Do I Need Vibro Deburring?
Burr removal and Radiusing sharp edges can be done on all types of components utilising vibratory and barrel deburring techniques. Vibro deburring is suitable for lots of different parts and as a result is used across all sorts of industries and applications.
Some common industries that rely on vibro deburring include:
- Automotive: This sector deals with huge chunks of metal which need smoothing out to be safe and fit for use. Vibro deburring is used to buff the metal out to ensure that it can function correctly within the vehicle.
- Medical: The medical industry often uses vibro deburring to meet the high safety levels this sector demands. Medical instruments are often made from metal which means they need to be as smooth as possible to reduce the risk of injury. Vibro deburring helps to create polished tools that are safe for use.
- Sports: From hockey boards to skate blades, the sports sector is another industry that uses vibro deburring to create flawless metal components that are safe to use.
Metals You Can Vibro Deburr
The vibro deburring process is incredibly adaptable depending on the type of material going into the machine.
With this in mind, there are a wealth of metals that can be used in vibro deburring including:
- Mild Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Cast Iron
What is the purpose of vibro deburring?
Vibro deburring is used across many different manufacturing applications as either a preliminary or finishing process. From creating smooth finished edges or polishing parts ahead of them being electroplated, deburring helps to improve the safety, efficiency and alignment of components.
What is a vibro deburring machine?
The vibro deburring machine is the name of the vibrating machine that the media and the components go into. The deburring machine vibrates up to 3000 times a minute allowing for the rough edges to be smoothed out, washed, and chemically treated.
What is the difference between vibro deburring and vibratory deburring?
None at all. Vibro is a shortened version of vibratory and both terms are commonly referred to.
About this Process
As mentioned above, the vibro deburring process is incredibly versatile, it has the ability to deburr brass, steel & many more materials. This is one of the reasons it is used so widely across various industries. Generally speaking, vibro deburring involves specific moulded pellets being placed into the container of a vibratory tumbler.
This container along with the components requiring deburring are then vibrated through the machinery. The machine can vibrate between 1500-3000 times a minute, causing the media (the abrasive/polishing materials) and the component to shake and tumble together around the machine. As the container and the products vibrate, the excess residue and debris on the components is removed completely, resulting in a smooth finish.
