Brush Research’s Nampower high-performance abrasive nylon disc brush line now includes a selection of small-diameter tools. These new brushes are available in 50-, 60- and 80-mm diameters in both dot- and turbine-style configurations. A specialty flow-through toolholder with a 16-mm shank is also available to accommodate the smaller-diameter tools.

The brushes are made of a combination of ceramic and silicon carbide abrasive nylon mounted to a thermoplastic base. Because of their smaller diameters, the brushes offer greater versatility for hard-to-reach areas, smaller applications and planetary head mountings for consistent and cost-effective results, according to the company. They can be integrated into automated machinery such as CNC machining centers, transfer lines and robotic cells.

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

    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.

    The consistent performance and radial compliance of this device is making companies re-evaluate their manual deburring operations.
