Abrasive Nylon Disc Brushes Remove Burrs, Improves Surface FinishMarch 16, 2012
Brush Research Mfg. Co., Los Angeles, CA, introduces a new line of Nampower abrasive nylon brushes that contain a combination of ceramic and silicon carbide filaments, promising to optimize burr-removal rates while creating an ideal surface finish—all in one operation. The abrasive filaments act as flexible files, conforming to part contours to wipe and file across part edges and surfaces. Sharp new grains constantly come in contact with the work surface and as they wear, fresh cutting particles become exposed. This provides consistent deburring action throughout the length of bristles.
Metalformers can use the brushes with CNC machining centers, transfer lines and robotic cells used for machine inline deburring edge radiusing and surface finishing. Typical applications for include removing burrs and blending tool marks in punched and fineblanked components, and deburring face-milled surfaces. The tools are available in two different fill configurations: dot style for general-purpose deburring and surface finishing; and turbine style for medium- and heavy-deburring applications. Size options for the brushes: 100-, 125- and 150-mm dia., with trim length of 18 or 38 mm. Grit sizes: 80, 120, 180 and 320.
