Deburring Tools for Small Parts
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), American maker of flexible hones and industrial brushing tools, is announcing miniature deburring brushes for small parts. By selecting and using the right deburring tools, manufacturers can improve consistency, promote quality, and speed operations. As a full-line supplier of industrial brushes, BRM can help both with deburring tool selection and technical support.
In addition to surface finish requirements, buyers must evaluate product specifications such as brush size and filament type. Part contours, the material to work, and the amount of material to remove are also important to consider. With automated deburring, manufacturers need to note the speed of the machine tool, feed rates, and the brush tool's optimum wear life, too.
Types of Deburring Brushes
BRM supplies high-quality, long-lasting brush tools with carbon steel, stainless steel, brass, nylon, and abrasive nylon filaments. Available abrasive types include aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, silicate, and diamond. For deburring and surface finishing applications with bore sizes of 4 mm or greater, Flex-Hone® tools are available.
Miniature deburring brushes with metal filaments are suitable for some small parts. For clearing chips from holes, and for removing protruding and break-through burrs, stainless steel brushes in diameters as small as 0.024 in. (0.6 mm) are used. BRM also supplies small parts deburring brushes with stainless steel filaments for cross-hole deburring.
Nylon brushes for small parts finishing feature non-reactive nylon filaments that will not impart carbon impurities to the work surface. Abrasive nylon brushes are recommended for applications involving tight tolerances, edge blending, burr removal, and other finishing requirements for bores as small as 0.032 in. (0.8 mm). These brush tools are also used for polishing thread peaks and removing burrs from threads.
Flexible Honing Tools for Small Parts Deburring
Flex-Hone® tools are resilient, flexible honing tools with a soft cutting action. Self-centering, self-aligning to the bore, and self-compensating for wear, these deburring tools feature globules of abrasive grit that are permanently laminated to the ends of nylon filaments. Known also as ball hones, flexible hones are available in 8 different abrasive types and 11 grit selections.
For small parts deburring with bores sizes of 4-mm or greater, Flex-Hone® tools are preferred. With their low-temperature, low-pressure abrading process, BRM ball hones remove burrs and improve surface finish at the same time. For more information, including advice about tool selection and use, download the Flex-Hone® Resource Guide.
