Designed for surface removal on demanding production runs, Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ line of Norton double-cut carbide burrs is said to last longer with fewer change-overs on challenging production applications. The hardness of the tungsten carbide substrate, stronger tooth formulation due to decreased tooth wedge angle and numerous cutting edges provide extended service life and better stock removal performance, according to the company. The company also says that the tool achieves smaller, granular chip breaks on hard-to-grind workpieces.

The carbide burrs are designed for removing surface stock and weld splatter, deburring and chamfering applications, and light to medium cleaning. Tool geometries are said to meet the demands for stainless steel, steel, cast steel and composites applications. The burrs perform well at higher temperatures and can be used longer than high-speed steel tools, says the company.

The burrs can be used with handheld tools such as the Norton pneumatic die grinder or on CNC machine tools. The line of burrs includes 30 different tools and is offered in seven types including:

  • SA cylindrical without end cut
  • SB cylindrical with end cut
  • SC ball-nosed cylindrical
  • SD ball shape
  • SF ball-nosed tree
  • SG tree with taper
  • SL ball-nosed cone style

The company also offers a kit with the most popular five burr types for smaller job requirements.

  • Bolt On Deburring

    Burrs are a nemesis for most metalworking shops. And cross-hole burrs are among the worst cases that shops encounter. For most applications, deburring must be done off-line as a secondary operation.

  • New Tools Automate Hole-Deburring

    New tools increase the efficiency of automatic hole deburring. Some can handle holes as small as 0.030 inch diameter.

  • Getting More Bang For Your Deburring Buck

    Today, customers demand parts that are burr-free, which would suggest aggressive deburring. At the same time, they want parts that are free of scratches and dings, which calls for gentle processing. There is a non-conventional deburring process that not only completely removes burrs from even difficult-to-reach part areas, but also leaves machined features and surface finishes intact and parts free of nicks and scratches. The process is called thermal deburring.
