Burrburr is a raised edge or small piece of material that is formed from a modification process and remains attached to the edge of a workpiece. Created by machining processes, such as slitting, burrs are frequently removed as these exposed sharp edges can be dangerous to handle and add difficulty to fabrication in some manufacturing situations.

Burrs are removed using a deburring tool or process that shapes the edge to a desired form, eliminating the burr.

One such process, mechanical deburring, can either grind the burrs off the metal or roll the burr back into edge of the slit or sheared metal, creating a smooth, safe, burr-free edge.
