The burr formation is one of the most common and undesirable phenomenon occurring in machining operations, which reduces assembly and machined part quality. To remove the burrs, a costly and non-value-added process known as deburring is required for post-processing and edge finishing. A basic overview of burr formation and removal is presented in this paper. Due to vast applications of aluminum alloys in many industrial sectors, such as automotive and aerospace industries, this paper also describes the most highly used deburring and edge finishing on aluminum machined parts. The main advantages, disadvantages, limitations, part quality and precision of these operations are presented. This can be beneficial for an adequate selection of deburring methods, cost reduction and production rate improvement
