Remove Sharp Edges from Bone Screws

Medical Case Study - Bone Screws

This titanium bone screw had a very small class 1 or 2 burr on the face. Weiler Nylox is an excellence choice to remove these burrs without harming the component.

The part was deburred in a Swiss machine using live tooling incorporating a brush. The brush was a 3” diameter wheel in 0.002”/320 Grit Silicon Carbide. The brush was run at 2700RPM while the screw was slowly rotated. This resulted in an easily deburred component for the customer.
