Weiler Corporation’s Burr-Rx deburring tools include power tube brushes; small-diameter wheels; Bore-Rx internal deburring tools; and large-diameter wheel, disc, miniature disc and banded end brushes. The comprehensive line of tools is designed to address a variety of automated deburring needs.
Black nylon filaments are co-extruded with an engineered ceramic abrasive grain to provide faster cut rates than standard silicon carbide or aluminum-oxide filaments. The brushes’ extreme aggression reduces cycle times by enabling high feed rates and short dwell times, the company says. This results in increased throughput and lower deburring costs. In addition, the company says the brushes can remove burrs that are hard to remove with conventional nylon-abrasive-filament brushes.
Ceramic grain brushes are well-suited for deburring tough materials such as Inconel, stainless steel and titanium. The assortment of filament configurations and product-fill densities is said to provide a high-performance tool for a variety of materials.
