Learn about sharp edge cleanup via tumble, jitterbug, hand-file, and line grain..
- [Instructor] There are many processes…in a sheet metal shop that produce sharp edges…or burrs on parts.…Secondly, many of the parts require a cosmetic finish,…like line graining or jitterbugging.…There are four key tools used in the shop…to deburr and finish parts.…The first is the tumbler.…A tumbler is a mass finishing device…that can finish multiple parts…at the same time very quickly.…The media comes in a variety of sizes and grits,…depending on the part size and the tumbler used.…Small parts use small media in small tumblers…and we have a larger tumbler, as well,…with bigger parts and bigger media.…
There's plastic media, ceramic media…and it comes in all types of grits and sizes and shapes.…The larger tumblers allow us to tumble larger parts,…as well as use larger rocks and heavy duty machines.…The hand grinder is primarily used to remove the burr…that's left where the laser starts and stops its cut.…This little burr can be quickly removed…with a little hand grinder and quickly process…through the parts.…
First, review the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS and the properties that make sheet metal unique: bend radius, K-factor, bend deduction, gauge thickness, and more. Then learn how to create basic parts, with base features, flanges, and bends that add strength and connections. Find out how to flatten parts and add holes, cuts, and corners that are manufacturing ready, and use the Convert to Sheet Metal command to convert imported geometry into native sheet metal parts. Gabriel also shows you how to create assemblies from multiple parts, use the Pattern and Mirrors tools to effortlessly duplicate existing work, and then document your designs with detailed sheet metal drawings. Watch the bonus videos to learn about the different machinery and processes that occur during manufacturing.
