Files - Metal

Filing is a material removal process in manufacturing. Similar to both sawing and grinding, but used mostly for finishing operations, such as in deburring operations. Filing operations can be used on a wide range of materials as a finishing technique. Filing helps achieve workpiece function by removing some excess material and deburring the surface. Sandpaper may be used as a filing tool for other materials or when working in a difficult to reach area.
