A Swiss supplier for the German automotive industry was previously required to manually deburr the fork, used in a steering column. Faced with the problem that manual deburring was too time-consuming and caused a production backlog, the company sought a new solution.

Fork piece deburring is a tried and tested application of the COFA tool. Customer requirements to minimise processing cycle time as much as possible led to the development of a unique solution. The 15.0 mm diameter could also be machined using a standard COFA tool. HEULE proposed a double-cassette tool in order to work with a maximum working feed rate. This tool uses two blades.
