NamPower Abrasive Disc Brushes

April 13, 2013

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of the Flex-Hone tool, is showing manufacturers how to automate deburring and surface finishing with professional-grade NamPower abrasive disc brushes. In a just-released YouTube video, which can be viewed below, the company demonstrates how NamPower abrasive disc brushes provide maximum burr removal rates and an ideal surface finish at the same time.

BRM's new "How to Automate Deburring and Finishing" video features both Dot Style and Turbine Style brushes, and shows how NamPower technology uses a unique flow-through coolant system.

Related Glossary Terms

  • abrasive


    Substance used for grinding, honing, lapping, superfinishing and polishing. Examples include garnet, emery, corundum, silicon carbide, cubic boron nitride and diamond in various grit sizes.

  • burr


    Stringy portions of material formed on workpiece edges during machining. Often sharp. Can be removed with hand files, abrasive wheels or belts, wire wheels, abrasive-fiber brushes, waterjet equipment or other methods.

  • coolant


    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task.
