Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), U.S. supplier of surface finishing tools and deburring brushes, is announcing a technical article about its Made in America Flex-Hone® tools. In time for the Fourth of July, the 55-year old California company is celebrating American manufacturing and the craftsmanship and pride behind its Made in the USA products.

Founded in 1958 by Steve Rands, a Canadian citizen who came to the United States in search of new opportunity, BRM is now a world leader in surface finishing solutions. The Los Angeles manufacturer is renowned for its Flex-Hone® technology, but also adds value to supply chains through the design and manufacture of custom products for surface finish improvement.    

American-Made Flexible Honing Tools

As BRM’s new article explains, flexible cylinder hones feature abrasive globules that are permanently laminated to the ends of flexible nylon filaments. Self-centering, self-aligning to the bore, and self-compensating for wear, ball hones use a low-temperature, low-pressure abrading process to produce a soft cutting action. The result is a plateau finish with oil-retaining grooves for optimum lubrication.

Flexible honing tools come in a variety of abrasive types, grit sizes, and diameters. Built with a double-wire metal stem, these surface finishing and deburring tools mount in either handheld power tools or production machinery. In addition to surface quality improvement and burr removal, Flex-Hone® applications include edge blending and chamfering.

Stronger Supply Chains

As the manufacturer’s technical article, BRM Flex-Hone® Tools: Made in USA Surface Finishing Solutions, explains, the American company employs approximately 95 workers at its California headquarters. BRM also supplies hundreds of distributors across the U.S., and ships industrial brush tools to trusted partners in more than 50 nations worldwide.

In addition to American craftsmanship and pride, Brush Research Manufacturing attributes its success to strong relationships with customers. By listening carefully to their needs and then delivering high-quality brushing tools on-time, BRM solves surface finishing challenges.
