Performance Counts with Weiler Burr-Rx™ Brushes
Weiler Corporation Posted 03/22/2013
Weiler Corporation, the leader in nylon abrasive filament brushes, provides the most complete offering of specialty brush deburring tools which feature advanced ceramic-grain filament technology. Originally introduced in 2008, the Burr-Rx™ product line has since been expanded to include power tube brushes, small-diameter wheels, Bore-Rx™ internal deburring tools, mini-disc brushes, and banded end brushes in addition to large-diameter wheel brushes and shell-mill-holder disc brushes.
The black nylon filaments of Weiler’s Burr-Rx™ brushes are co-extruded with an engineered ceramic abrasive grain, providing cut rates up to 400% faster than silicon carbide or aluminum oxide filaments. The extreme performance of Burr-Rx™ brushes reduce cycle times by allowing the use of high feed rates and short dwell times, resulting in increased throughput and lower deburring costs. In addition, Burr-Rx brushes can remove burrs that are impossible to remove with conventional nylon abrasive filament brushes.
Ceramic grain Burr-Rx™ brushes are especially well-suited for deburring tough materials such as inconel, stainless steel, and titanium, but with an assortment of filament configurations and product fill densities, there is a high performance tool available for use on practically any material.
Weiler was the pioneer in ceramic abrasive nylon filament technology, and Burr-Rx™ is the industry’s most comprehensive offering of high aggression, compliant brushing tools that address practically any automated deburring need.
