Application examples Deburring


iNDAT Robotics has decades of experience and know-how in deburring. Drive and output shafts, planetary gears, crankshafts and generator shafts are just some of the workpieces that have been the focus of numerous completed projects.

Press release

Complete system for deburring and finishing car and truck crankshafts

iNDAT Robotics has developed a system for the precise deburring of crankshafts. The particularly demanding task of rounding the oil holes on conrod and main bearings is taken over by a robot. Consisting of two separate modularly-designed robot cells, the system can be easily adapted to individual requirements and integrated into existing production lines.

Press release

Robot cell for automatic deburring of generator shafts up to 20 m in length

The contours add up to more than a kilometer and sometimes they have to be machined several times – manually deburring the multitude of grooves, threads, slots and holes on large generator shafts, such as those used in hydroelectric or lignite-fired power plants, is an extremely time-consuming task.
