A line of Type 1 cotton-fiber abrasive wheels that are an effective alternative to unitized wheels for automated stainless steel deburring applications is available from Rex Cut Abrasives.
Rex-Cut Smooth Touch Type 1 Deburring Wheels are made from cotton fiber, impregnated with abrasives and a proprietary bond, to create a dense yet flexible wheel that constantly reveals fresh abrasives as it works. Ideal for the robotic deburring and finishing of precision stainless steel parts, they last up to five times longer than unitized wheels, claims the firm.
Comparable to conventional 5-9 density unitized wheels, Rex-Cut Smooth Touch Type 1 Deburring Wheels are designed for use at up to 30,000 RPM, depending upon diameter and thickness. Available in coarse, medium, and fine grits in 2"-, 3"-, 4"- and 6"-dia. sizes, 1⁄8, ¼" and ½" thick, they can be dressed and used for a wide variety of finishing applications.
