Home Tolerance Burrs


A burr is a slight draw of material. It occurs on the bottom side as a result of separating material during perforating and shearing, if applicable. If roller leveled, hole burrs may end up being pushed back into their hole during roller leveling, causing the holes to look less clean. Shear burrs, unless otherwise specified, may occur on the opposite side of hole burrs due to production methods.

Burr height is determined by taking the difference of the measurement of the thickness of the material with and without the burr. These measurements should be taken reasonably close to each other so that they are not influenced by any variation in the thickness of the material. The following are acceptable burr heights under normal perforating & shearing conditions.

Locator Holes

Intended to enable subsequent operations to be performed precisely in relation to the perforated area, accurately placed locator holes provide a means for increasing the probability that quality parts will be produced. To find out if locator holes can be produced in the size, shape, and location needed for your production process, provide us with a drawing of the part with the locator hole and a member of our staff will contact you. Two examples of locator holes in coil product are shown here.
