Our parti­ci­pa­tion in the best of Indus­try Award THE XEBEC BACK-BURR CUTTER

Our Xebec Back-Burr Cutter & Path debur­ring system, already featured in the Decem­ber issue of MM-Maschi­nen­markt “The Product Guide” was voted Product of the Year in the field of machi­ning and is now offi­ci­ally nomi­na­ted for the Best of Indus­try Award 2019 in the field of machi­ning.

The Xebec Back-Burr Cutter & Path debur­ring system, consis­ting of a debur­ring cutter and NC data set (Path) gene­ra­ted espe­ci­ally for your appli­ca­tion, is able to effi­ci­ently and highly produc­tively deburr the most compli­ca­ted 3D-curved bore edges with the highest precision.

This inno­va­tion is curr­ently the only tool system on the market that can shift its cutter cutting point during contour machi­ning and thus always utili­zes the entire cutting surface. This increa­ses the tool life many times over.

In addi­tion, a single, machi­ning pass is usually suffi­ci­ent to deburr normal contours without leaving any resi­due and with a uniform cham­fer width. This makes the debur­ring system one of the fastest on the market and supports you in opti­mi­zing your work proces­ses.

The winners in the respec­tive areas will be deter­mi­ned by an online vote and an expert jury and the prizes will be awar­ded on 27 June 2019.

If you have an appro­priate appli­ca­tion, please contact our specia­lists – we will also find the best solu­tion for your debur­ring problem.

DMG-MORI “Open House”

We were also repre­sen­ted with two Xebec tool solu­ti­ons at the DMG-MORI „Open House” days last week in Pfron­ten. The Xebec Back-Burr Cutter & Path maste­red the complex debur­ring of the thread exits of this sample work­piece. Speed, precision and tool life were the decisive charac­te­ris­tics for equip­ping the CNC-Lathe from DMG-MORI with the tool of the year 2018 (MM Maschi­nen­markt).



At the DMG-MORI “Open House” days in Pfron­ten, the CNC lathe was equip­ped with a Xebec cera­mic fiber brush, among other tools, which took over the debur­ring work of the milled surfaces of the milled surfaces of the sample work­piece. On request, the CNC lathe from DMG-MORI will be equip­ped with this inno­va­tive debur­ring solu­tion from Kempf.

Tools made of high-perfor­mance cera­mics

A mate­rial like no other – with this self-confi­dent state­ment, the Japa­nese company XEBEC, toge­ther with the company Kempf from Reichen­bach an der Fils, presen­ted ist debur­ring and poli­shing tools made of high perfor­mance cera­mics at the EMO Hanno­ver 2017, which are charac­te­ri­zed by an unsur­pas­sed grin­ding and cutting force.

“Inno­va­tion begins with the impos­si­ble” – the head­line of the company philo­so­phy of the Tokyo-based manu­fac­tu­rer already makes clear the self-confi­dence with which XEBEC faces chal­len­ges. The goal is nothing less that the reali­za­tion of the seemin­gly impos­si­ble. For the Japa­nese it is above all important to auto­mate simple tasks as far as possi­ble so that people can engage in deman­ding and crea­tive activi­ties. Follo­wing this maxim, the Japa­nese also decla­red the state­ment many years ago, that it is a myth that manual debur­ring is the only way to remove burrs. The cera­mic fiber tools now presen­ted at EMO Hanno­ver 2017 will also contri­bute to the debur­ring process.

Up to 1000 cera­mic fibers ensure excel­lent cutting proper­ties

The products manu­fac­tu­red by XEBEC use abra­sive cera­mic fiber mate­rial instead of abra­sive grain. A single bristle, accord­ing to the Japa­nese, consists of 500 – 1,000 cera­mic fibers with excel­lent cutting proper­ties that act as cutting edges. XEBEC engi­neers empha­size three features of the inno­va­tive cera­mic fiber: “over­whel­ming grin­ding force”, “consis­tent cutting perfor­mance” and “no defor­ma­tion”, allo­wing CNC debur­ring and poli­shing. Accord­ing to the Japa­nese, the promi­sed “over­whel­ming grin­ding force” is due in part to the fact that the unique XEBEC cera­mic fibers have cutting edges compo­sed of the tip of each fiber bristle. This provi­des up to sixty times more grin­ding power than a nylon brush and the burrs can be remo­ved extre­mely thoroughly.

Inno­va­tive debur­ring tool in combi­na­tion with NC data record

At the joint stand, where the company Kempf from Reichen­bach (Fils) was also repre­sen­ted there was lively inte­rest due to the wide range of possi­ble appli­ca­ti­ons. In addi­tion to the cera­mic fiber tools, the recently intro­du­ced but already very success­fully used Back-Burr Cutter was presen­ted. The inno­va­tive debur­ring system, consis­ting of a speci­ally deve­lo­ped highly posi­tive debur­ring cutter in combi­na­tion with an NC data set gene­ra­ted for the custo­mer appli­ca­tion, is charac­te­ri­zed by the redu­ced machi­ning time as well as the process-safe and abso­lutely clean debur­ring of ellip­ti­cal edges on inter­sec­ting bores. The NC data set is indi­vi­dually program­med in advance for the customer’s appli­ca­tion and thus ensu­res opti­mum opera­tion with constant utili­za­tion of the tool cutting edge.

Kempf, who has been known for deca­des as a compe­tent and respec­ted part­ner in metal cutting, atta­ches parti­cu­lar impor­t­ance to the cost-effec­tiveness of the products offe­red. Redu­ced machi­ning times with a simul­ta­ne­ous increase in dura­bi­lity and process relia­bi­lity during machi­ning are important aspects here. Xebec offers excel­lent debur­ring solu­ti­ons for this purpose, whose products are exclu­si­vely avail­able in Germany from debur­ring specia­list Kempf.
