As an alternative to brush deburring, chips and burrs can be removed by high pressure using the impulse of a water jet. Often, an abrasive medium is added to the water to improve the removal effect.
The water jet is directed through nozzles at pressures between 300 and 1,100 bar or even higher onto the areas of a workpiece to be treated, whereby even hard-to-reach intersections and bores are reached. The high kinetic energy of the water jet removes burrs from the machining edges, chips and other impurities.
Depending on the material and the shape of the burr, the pressure must be adjusted. This deburring process is particularly suitable for workpieces made of light metal.
Applications are the groove and bores in pistons with subsequent cleaning. Turbine housings are usually inspected 100% visually for pinch chips.
