Adapter Enables Automated Deburring with Wheel Brushes
Tanis offers its Shell Mill Adapter for wheel brushes, designed to simplify wheel brush attachment to CNC machines and enable automated deburring. The adapter plates are placed on both sides of a wheel brush and secured with a bolt that runs through a centrally located opening into the shell mill holder. Set screws prevent the brush from rotating. The lightweight and durable aluminum adapter is compatible with Tanis wheel brushes ranging from 2" to 14" in diameter.
