A burr is a raised edge or small piece of material remaining attached to a workpiece after a modification process.

It is usually an unwanted piece of material and is removed with a deburring tool in a process called “deburring”.

Burrs are most commonly created after machining operations, such as grinding, drilling, milling, engraving or turning. It may be present in the form of a fine wire on the edge of a freshly sharpened tool or as a raised portion of a surface; this type of burr is commonly formed when a hammer strikes a surface. Deburring accounts for a significant portion of manufacturing costs.

Burrs can be minimized or prevented by considering materials, function, shape, and processing in the design and manufacturing engineering phases of product development.
