Are you looking for proven solutions for deburring hard-to-reach cross bores? Visit us at Booth #4088 at PMTS in Cleveland, OH to see the HEULE COFA deburring tool. Specifically designed to provide both front and back deburring on even and uneven surfaces, COFA is a favorite of machinists across all industries for speeding up production and reducing costs on jobs that previously required manual deburring of hard-to-reach cross bores.

As part of HEULE’s X-Bores line of specialized cross bore deburring solutions, COFA is a standard tool that easily solves production problems for most manufacturers who are looking to automate their cross bore deburring processes. Because it is suitable for all ranges of machine materials and surfaces (including sloped bores), COFA is a successful solution for many applications, including forks, yokes, common rails, castings, tubes with cross bores, and other work pieces with cross bores in main bores.

The COFA deburring tool was recently featured in Production Machining for a case study involving the production of subsea valves for Abco Subsea in Houston, TX. CNC Manager Jerry Cross found the COFA tool while seeking solutions that would eliminate manual deburring for his machine operators. "“The guys would not want to come back to work the next day because their fingers and hands were sore from manually deburring these cross-saddle-type holes, top and bottom,” Mr. Cross says.

The COFA deburring tool was the solution that allowed Cross to automate his processes while producing parts at a rate that would meet his production demands. “Now our operator can give it a once over and put it in the box,” Mr. Cross says.
