Diamond Tool Features Self-Sharpening Edge

Brush Research Manufacturing’s diamond flex-hones are designed for deburring, edge blending and surface finishing in hard materials such as carbide, ceramic and aerospace steel alloys. The tools are engineered using resin-bond diamond crystals with high friability, a characteristic that makes edges self-sharpening.

Brush Research Manufacturing’s diamond flex-hones are designed for deburring, edge blending and surface finishing in hard materials such as carbide, ceramic and aerospace steel alloys. The tools are engineered using resin-bond diamond crystals with high friability, a characteristic that makes edges self-sharpening. The free-cutting tool features a rapid cut rate that produces an optimal finish, the company says.

The tools are made with premium, nickel-coated abrasive to aid in heat dissipation and improve bond retention. Sizes from 4 to 20 mm are standard in three different mesh sizes, with other diameters and mesh selections available as options.

Applications include carbide wear parts; guide and drill bushings; ceramic cylinders; heat-treated steel; high nickel stainless steel; MMX aluminum alloys; chromed and plated bores; aerospace components; medical parts; and EDM recast layers.
