Got Burrs?

The Matrix Deburring Applications Lab (MDAL) was created as a developmental tool to evaluate automated deburring operations in a real-life testing environment. It allows Matrix to take actual parts to test the deburring operation with various processes and technologies in order to determine what deburring process is the best fit for a specific part that needs to be deburred.

The MDAL contains a single FANUC robot in the center of four stations that can be used separately or together to determine the best tools and processes for each unique deburring operation. Matrix proprietary adaptive technologies are integrated into each station. See robotic deburring page for more information on adaptive technologies.

If you are dealing with pesky burrs on your machined parts, Matrix Design is offering a free, no obligations deburring analysis for those who have a need to deburr or remove material from a machined part. Depending on the complexity of the burrs and the parts, a deburring test analysis report can be generated within 2-4 weeks. We will classify the burr type(s), make recommendations on material removal, and determine if robotic automation will be the best solution. Please note that there are some limitations to what can be deburred, such as combustible materials and hard materials.If you are interested in having a deburring analysis completed on your machined parts, please fill out the form below and one of our team members will contact you shortly. You may also call us at 847.841.8260 to inquire about this risk-free deburring analysis opportunity.

After installation support is excellent!

Manufacturing Engineer

I would like to pay particular thanks to Doug Sands at Matrix and his team for the rapid response last night, as well as, the dedication to his service tech. [He] was onsite within 30 min of my call to Doug and stayed with this until we were up and had run 250 pcs. for confirmation of success, which lasted until 1:30am this morning.

Tier 2 Business Unit Leader

Thank you each of you for your excellent support over the past several years. Everyone on your team has been extremely helpful and wonderful to work with.
