Burr-Rx brushes use advanced filament technology, resulting in maximum aggression. The black nylon filaments are co-extruded with high aggression ceramic grains, providing cut rates to almost 400 percent faster than standard silicon carbide filaments.

The aggression of these brushes reduces cycle times by allowing the use of high feed rates and short dwell times, resulting in increased throughput and lower deburring costs. In addition, the brushes can remove burrs that were previously impossible to remove with conventional nylon abrasive filament brushes. The disc brush can be mounted in CNC machines directly onto a shell mill holder. All disc brushes are also manufactured using a new process which results in a very consistent, flat brush face in comparison to molded backed discs. The high dimensional precision of these new tools equates to more consistency from first part to last.

The disc brush can be mounted in CNC machines directly onto a shell mill holder--a separate drive arbor is not required. All disc brushes are also manufactured using a new process, which results in a consistent, flat brush face in comparison to molded backed discs. The high dimensional precision of these new tools equates to more consistency from first part to last.

The Burr-Rx composite metal hub wheels offer a 50 percent higher filament density than traditional metal hub brushes. Constructed with a steel shell, these brushes provide increased accuracy and dimensional stability to ensure consistent, effiicient performance with minimal vibration during use. The brushes are produced with a 2" bore, which allows for direct mounting on equipment without any need for adapters.

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
