It is critical to both quality and production efficiency that the process of removing burrs, flashings or contaminants be effective. Our TEM process has a proven track record of meeting this challenge.



Highlights of this process include:

Deburring effectiveness. Burrs, flashings and loose particles are eliminated, regardless of their location on – or inside the component.

Process efficiency. Compared to traditional mechanical and abrasive methods, there is no media that can become trapped in internal areas or contaminate the surface.

Ease of use. Compared to water jet, TEM is not a line-of-sight process requiring targeted programming of media. With TEM, the gas envelops every area of the component simultaneously.

Blockage elimination. Compared to water jet, mechanical and abrasive methods TEM is a non-contact process therefore burrs and flashings cannot be folded or pushed onto the component.

Abrasion elimination. Compared to manual and mechanical methods, no secondary burrs are produced and there is no risk of scratching critical areas.

Machining simplicity. Only simple baskets and workpiece holding fixtures are required.

Extremely high production rates. Up to hundreds of parts in a 30- to 60-second cycle time is typical and 24/7 operations are achievable.

Cost-effectiveness. TEM processing cost is less than a fraction of a cent for gas and electricity usage per component, resulting in operating costs that are among the lowest in the finishing industry.

Quality and repeatability. Superior process stability combined with good process control ensures precision, constant quality and the highest repeatability.

Uniform results. Our tooling assures uniform energy distribution and protects surfaces while undergoing processing.

Customized tooling. Our plate and pin fixtures are corrosion resistant and custom designed to suit specific application.

Ease of automation. Our tooling provides for ease of loading and unloading components and maintenance of workpiece orientation.

Enhanced component performance. Many customers report a reduction in component performance failures and warranty claims, leading to a higher level of customer satisfaction.
