  • ATI Compliant Deburring Blade
    The pneumatically-actuated Compliant Deburring Blade excels in light and medium deburring, chamfering, and scraping operations. Both axial and radial compliance reduces robot programming time and enables consistent contact forces throughout the process....

  • The Compliant Deburring Blade (CDB), patent-pending, is ATI’s newest and most versatile deburring tool. The CDB is a direct replacement for manual material removal processes and provides users high flexibility in a simple device. The pneumatically-controlled, articulated design of the CDB gives users the ability to tune the contact force to accommodate specific applications by changing the air pressure. The durable interface accommodates a variety of readily available blades and media used with hand deburring tools. The blades can be changed out quickly, by hand, without using additional tools. There is an option to include automatic blade changing for hands-free blade changeover if required.


    With interchangeable blades and variable contact force, the CDB thrives in many diverse application environments. It excels in light and medium deburring operations on materials such as plastic, aluminum, steel, brass, and more. The CDB’s axial and radial compliance allows for constant contact force where surface irregularities are present to produce consistent results. Integrating the Compliant Deburring Blade in a robotic material removal application not only reduces robotic programming time but also makes the programming process more manageable. 


    ATI’s Compliant Deburring Blade attaches easily to any robot with an adapter plate, and mounts directly, in any orientation, to a bench or fixture. The streamlined design does not use any high-speed moving parts—ideal for collaborative applications. The CDB’s simplified programming helps users get up and running quickly.


    ATI’s CDB offers users more control to optimize their light- to medium-duty material removal processes. It is easy to change the blades, the air pressure, and the type of compliance, to achieve a specific result. The new Compliant Deburring Blade from ATI is like having an entire material removal tool kit in a single, straightforward device.


    Visit the ATI booth, B29074, at this year’s FABTECH show in Chicago, IL November 11-14. View a live robotic demonstration of the Compliant Deburring Blade and preview these features:

    • The pneumatically-actuated compliance mechanism enables dynamic control of contact force to accommodate applications such as edge deburring, chamfering, countersinking, and scraping.

    • The robust collet accepts standard off-the-shelf hand deburring blades; media changeover does not require additional tools.

    • This multi-purpose device excels in various material removal tasks on plastic, aluminum, steel, brass, and more.

    • No motor noise helps to reduce ambient noise in the work environment.

    • A simple mechanical design, without high-speed moving parts, makes this tool ideal for collaborative processes.

    • Operators can easily switch between full radial and single-axis compliance.

    • Radial and axial compliance allow fast and easy programming of the robot. The movement of the blade compensates for changes in part tolerances, part misalignment, and robot path variation.
