Our sheet metal deburring is easy, fast, and free!
At no extra charge, our sheet metal deburring service will remove any major manufacturing imperfections such as dross, burr, or handling scratches. While they won’t have a perfect surface finish, the parts will be prepped for further finishing processes and assembly.

Video Guide to Sheet Metal Deburring
What to expect from freshly laser cut parts
Once your parts come out of the laser, they might have some scale and porosity, minor handling scratches, and markings from the raw material.
The parts may also have a little bit of a burr on the edge from the manufacturing process. (Click through the images on your chosen material page to see how dross and burr can affect your part.)
Removing imperfections with linear deburring
We remove the majority of the machining imperfections using a linear deburring machine. This is also a belt sander, commonly referred to as a ‘Time Saver.’
The linear deburring process is best suited for flat sheet metal parts, but they have to fit within our deburring minimum and maximum part sizes. The smallest part that we can run through the deburring machine is 1”x3”, whereas the largest is 24”x46”.
What to expect from linear deburred metal parts
Here at SendCutSend, we use the minimum amount of pressure in the deburring machine to remove that burred edge on your parts.
When you receive your parts, you can expect:
- The part should be free of a burr on the outside surface of both sides.
- There may still be a somewhat sharp edge as this process doesn’t roll the edge, and just removes the burr on the outside face.
- Your part might have some imperfections and small handling scratches as it goes through the rest of processing,
- There shouldn’t be any raw material manufacturing markings left on the part.
