Research and development of proprietary automated deburring technology

FINE TECHNO’s business specializes in the automation of deburring processes, with a focus on the development, design, fabrication, and sale of automated deburring systems and deburring holders and tools.

The requirements in the field of deburring automation become ever more sophisticated and diverse due to growing demand for higher quality in production processes, cost-cutting efforts, worker shortages, and other issues. Amid this trend, we have placed repeated efforts into research and development that has allowed us to realize automated deburring technology that is on a par with the fast, high-quality work of skilled technicians.

High torque type air float deburring attachment

Research and development of proprietary automated deburring technology

In-house development of all products

The use of air-floating attachments, which have been developed in-house, has enabled us to build automation systems to suit the workpiece’s form and material.

We believe that it is our mission to help manufacturers to make major reductions in their cycle times and costs through the use of FINE TECHNO’s only technology (Fine Technology), which is the result of repeated research and development in-house.

We can meet your needs with a wide variety of robots

FINE TECHNO uses robots to assist with all manner of automation in the deburring process. We can employ robots from all Japanese and overseas robot manufacturers.

We are engaged in the development, design, fabrication, and sale of all manner of deburring-related automation systems, including pre- and post-deburring processes.
We provide human-friendly deburring robot cells to support next-generation manufacturing.

FINE TECHNO’s Original Deburring Logic

With the concept of replacing the techniques of skilled deburring technicians with a deburring robot cell, FINE TECHNO uses its own original deburring logic to achieve the automation of the deburring process.

FINE TECHNO-developed air-floating mechanism absorbs unmeasured sections of the workpiece on the X-, Y-, and Z-axes

The AF range of air-floating attachments developed by FINE TECHNO uses an air-floating mechanism to absorb unmeasured sections of the workpiece on the X-, Y-, and Z-axes, making it easy to teach the robot in the deburring process.

The air-floating force (pressing force applied to the blade) can be adjusted freely by adjusting the air pressure supplied to the air-floating part. An electro-pneumatic regulator is used to remove known burrs of varying sizes on the workpiece by changing the air pressure applied to individual sections.

Everyone involved in deburring operations is our customer

Burrs are raised edges left on the material in machining of metals and other materials and the casting of aluminum and iron, etc. JIS B 0051 defines a burr as “geometrically-shaped residue left on the outside of components on corner edges in machining and forming processes.”

CASEExamples of installation of automated deburring systems

  • Improving productivity

    Deburring time has been reduced from 24 minutes per piece with manual operations to 4 minutes. This has contributed to speedier production.

  • Improving working environment

    Workers were contracting tendonitis after three months of deburring work, but there are now no cases of tendonitis. Workers who had been working exclusively on deburring have been able to transfer to other tasks.

  • Improving overall line efficiency

    With the adjustment of robot cell cycle times to match upstream processes, one worker is now able to handle two deburring robot cells.

Total in-house full-run production that focuses on uniform management of manufacturing

The three companies of the FINE GROUP have collaborated to build a total in-house full-run production system.
From development and verification testing to the design and fabrication of regular production machinery, we are able to perform all processes within the group.
This in-group production enables uniform management of manufacturing and allows us to respond to customers’ requirements with high quality and in short turnaround timeframes.
Further, by building up a database of the technology for the various processes, we can use it for future development and proposals to meet our customers’ needs.
