Turbo-Abrasive Machining (TAM) is a new process for deburring and surface conditioning sophisticated multi-axis machined parts. Many parts, because of size and shape factors, can not be finished by a mass media technique but need manual intervention for final abrasive finishing. Apart from safety and production line/time considerations, a significant disadvantage of manual deburring is its impact on quality control and assurance procedures, which have often been computerized at great cost. The TAM process addresses these problems by automating the final machining and finishing production steps.
