Many different types of power brushes are available, so buyers need to understand the basics of filaments and mounting hardware.

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), leading supplier of surface finishing solutions, is announcing a new technical article called How to Select Power Brushes. The industrial brush manufacturer also has released a product video, BRM Wheel Brushes, which shows different kinds of wheel-shaped power brushes and how these versatile brushing tools are used.

Power brushes are used for part cleaning and polishing, surface preparation, edge blending, deburring, and surface fishing. Because these surface-conditioning and deburring tools can be used with production machinery or handheld power tools, manufacturers can make the most of existing equipment. Durable and reliable, BRM power brushes also provide uniform, repeatable results.

Technical Article: How to Select Power Brushes

As BRM’s How to Select Power Brushes article explains, brush tool selection requires an analysis of product specifications and application requirements. Many different types of power brushes are available, so buyers need to understand the basics of filaments and mounting hardware. Additional parameters, such as trim length and maximum safe free speed (MSFS), also need to be considered.

Power brush filament types include wire, nylon, abrasive nylon, and natural fiber. Cutting tool types include wheel, end, cup, pilot bonded, and flare brushes. Although mounting hardware serves mainly to introduce filaments, differences in product shape or configuration help to explain deburring tool types. Miniature brushes and adaptors for power brushes are also available.

As the new BRM Wheel Brushes video explains, knotted wire wheels are designed for aggressive brushing. Crimped wire wheels provide uniform brushing action. Copper centers for arbor mounting and nylon wheels for light finishing are also available. Abrasive nylon wheels for demanding applications and Tampico wheels for decorative surfaces provide reliable, uniform results.

The new BRM Wheel Brushes video also shows mandrel-mounted brushing tools for CNC equipment, encapsulated wheels for extreme brushing pressure, and BRM brush tools for mini-grinders. The Made in USA manufacturer plans additional power brush videos, and maintains a YouTube channel with a wide variety of video content.
