Flex-Hone Tools for Chamfer Blending

Brush Research Manufacturing is pleased to present the Flex-Hone for chamfer blending. This new line of specialty Flex-Hones are designed to blend and radius sharp edges and remove microburrs on chamfered holes eliminating stress risers caused by the chamfering operation.

The company's new series of tools are more flexible than standard hones and are designed to polish and radius the outer corners (the intersection of the chamfer and flange face), as well as the inner corners and hole. The increased flexibility allows the tool to pass through thin web sections and polish the chamfer on the back as well. The Flex-Hone tool eliminates hand finishing operations and produces consistent finishes from hole to hole, part to part.
