Abstract

High-quality products can have burrs of microscopic size and unpredictable location. The processes available to remove these smaller burrs are complex, so identifying their presence can spare the use of expensive removal processes. This project has sought to see how a capacitance probe can be used to detect microscopic burrs. After designing a system to fixture the probe and parts, the capacitance sensing system was connected to an oscilloscope to detect for burrs along centerless-ground edges.
