Weiler Corporation’s line of stem-mounted brushes are suited for a variety of applications, including cleaning and finishing recessed areas or internal diameters; cleaning and polishing dies, molds and tools; deburring; weld and carbon cleaning; spot facing; and cleaning rust, paint, scale or slag.
Designed to optimize performance of high speed air and electric tools, the stem-mounted brushes are available in a variety of styles including wheel, cup and end brush configurations, each made with a ¼" stem for easy mounting on tool collets, the company says. These brushes are available in heat-treated steel or Type 302 stainless steel for both crimped and knot wire configurations. Brass is also available for crimped wire products.
The offering also includes a line of concave brushes for cleaning and deburring off-hand or on a drill press. Available in both steel and stainless wire configurations, with diameters ranging from 1.5" to 4", these concave brushes are formulated with a dish shape that is suited for hard-to-reach areas.
An enhanced construction method for crimped wire end brushes minimizes the constriction of filaments at the mouth of the brush cup, which utilizes more filaments in the brush and increases brush life, the company says.
