Removing the sharp edges from tubes

In many situations, the ends of steel tubes need to be made safer and with softer edges in order to reduce health and safety risks or ensure stronger joins between multiple tubes. Deburring is the name for this process when it comes to working with metals, and it is one of the most important aspects of our service. While deburring may seem like a simple and straightforward task, it can be responsible for a significant percentage of manufacturing costs. Using our deburring services helps you avert much of the cost impact.

Although a significant part of deburring relates to making sure no sharp edges on cut steel tubes cause damage or harm, the process actually goes a good deal further than this. Deburring means to also shape the end of ERW steel tubes to meet the specifications of the design that it is being used for. Just as the length and diameter of the steel tube needs to be accurate in order to gain success in use, it’s vital that the tube ends are created and shaped exactly as required. We’re very proud of the fact that our services have delivered this over the years, thanks to our combination of expert knowledge and experience and our investment in top of the range equipment.

We mentioned earlier that the costs for deburring can be significant. This is certainly the case when not handled correctly, as quite often this can lead to a need to create new steel tubes in order to start again. While some businesses have the staff capable of deburring steel successfully, the costs of having them do it are measured in terms of lost time and resources. Calling on our deburring services makes sure you get a perfect, professional finish which saves you time and money.
