5 Important Variables for Abrasive Jet MachiningUsing MicroBlasting to cut or etch a part (a process also known as controlled erosion) is a great method to machine many precision parts, from drilling holes in ceramic substrates to cutting slots in fragile silicon and glass wafers. MicroBlasting is “shockless,”...
The MicroBlasting Guide to Precision AbrasivesOne of the keys to efficient MicroBlasting is using quality abrasives. In the past, we’ve discussed why you shouldn’t recycle used abrasive – this month, let’s dive into what kind of precision abrasives you should be using. Why Are Comco’s Abrasives Superior?...
5 Factors that Lead to Successful Deburring
In this quick video lesson, we break down the 5 factors that impact most deburring applications. When you’re done, you’ll know how to deburr…better!
The Missing Measurements of Deburring
Are old burrs suddenly reappearing? Are burrs popping up in a new location on your part? Is a once-reliable deburring method starting to fail? Chances are, you’re missing a measurement. Manufacturing expert, LaRoux Gillespie, shares the deburring measurements often missed that lead to recurring problems and new burr formations.
