Wheel brushes can remove burrs and improve surface finish, but cutting tool manufacturers need the best tools to get the best results – especially with machined parts made of harder materials.
NamPower wheel brushes with diamond abrasive filaments are the right choice to meet this challenge. They control the edge radius and polish the flue reliefs on cutting tools made of CBN, ceramic, cermet, high-speed steel, and tool steels. NamPower diamond wheels can remove hard coatings like nitride, too.
Today, cutting tool manufacturers are using NamPower diamond wheels to surface finish and deburr parts such as carbide inserts, drill bits, end mills, taps, reamers, gear hobs, and shapes. What do these part manufacturers know about NamPower than can help you save time and money?
NamPower diamond wheel brushes work well because of their superior construction. With their dense, uniform fill, these surface finishing and deburring tools from Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) put more cutting points at the point of attack. NamPower wheels also have virtually indestructible hubs that support the use of arbor adapters and integrate easily with today’s production machinery.
Better Brush Choices
NamPower diamond wheels come in three diameters: 100 mm (4 in), 150 mm (6 in), and 200 mm (8 in). The 100 mm brush has a 5 mm or 10 mm face width to accommodate a variety of flute sizes. The 150 mm and 200 mm wheel brushes have a face width of either 10 mm or 15 mm. Smaller-diameter brushes are more flexible and less aggressive. Larger-diameter brushes are less aggressive and more flexible.
More Parts per Wheel Brush
NamPower diamond wheels cost less than other diamond tools, but BRM’s nylon abrasive brushes can polish more flute reliefs and radius more edges per brushing tool. NamPower diamond wheels also last longer and achieve lower RA surface finishes. Accessories like arbor adapters help to increase brush support and reduce brush vibration.
Finally, cutting tool manufacturers who use NamPower diamond wheel brushes understand that proper edge radiusing prevents fracturing and premature insert wear. With drill bits, end mills, and reamers, reduced chip loading can extend tool life by reducing heat and friction. By helping to control cost and improve performance, NamPower diamond wheels get great results.
This month, you can learn about NamPower diamond wheel brushes at two tradeshows. From September 12 to 14, BRM will be in Booth #2408 at WESTEC 2017 in Los Angeles, California (USA). Then, from September 18 to 23, BRM will be in Booth #A47, Hall 011 at EMO 2017 in Hannover, Germany.
