Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), Made in USA supplier of Flex-Hone® tools, is announcing a new technical article and product video about NamPower nylon abrasive wheel brushes. Available in silicon carbide and diamond abrasive filaments, NamPower wheel brushes feature composite hubs, virtually indestructible cores, a balanced construction, and a choice of face widths and diameters.
Built with a uniform fill pattern and higher filament densities, NamPower nylon abrasive composite hub wheels provide an alternative to wire wheels and non-woven abrasive brushing tools. NamPower wheels are used in the production of turbine blades, steel gears, machine parts, extrusion cut-offs, and shaft finishing. These abrasive nylon radial brushes can also produce an edge radius on cutting tool inserts.
Diamond Wheel Brushes
As BRM’s new technical article explains, industrial buyers should choose NamPower diamond filament wheel brushes for harder materials such as ceramic, glass, carbide, and hardened tool steels. These diamond abrasive wheels are also ideal for producing edge radii on diamond and cubic boron nitride (CBN). Their composite hub construction offers a dense, uniform fill pattern for more cutting points.
NamPower diamond wheel brushes are also recommended for polishing the flute relief on carbide and high speed drills, end mills, and reamers. With end mills and reamers, a polished flute relief enhances chip removal and promotes better finishing and longer tool life. NamPower diamond abrasive wheels are also used to produce an edge radius on carbide inserts to prevent fracturing and premature wear.
For more information about NamPower diamond abrasive wheel brushes, including diameters, face widths, and available grit sizes, read BRM’s technical article or contact sales(at)brushresearch(dot)com.
Silicon Carbide Wheel Brushes
As BRM's new technical article explains, buyers can also choose NamPower wheel brushes with silicon carbide (SC) abrasive. Typically, these abrasive nylon wheels are recommended for use with other industrial metals, such as aluminum and steel. As with diamond wheel brushes, NamPower silicon carbide wheels feature a uniform fill pattern and higher filament density.
Grit selection is highly dependent on the starting surface finish and the amount of material refinement that’s required. Coarse grits are recommended for use on heavier burrs, or in applications where a fine surface finish is not required. Fine grit brush tools that are used on a rough starting finish will have less effect on surface condition improvement than the use of a coarse-grit brush followed by a finer-grit tool.
