one that will provide the best value, including a long service life. Te ideal deburring solution will shorten cycle times and provide a long brush life. Aggressive/Compliant Brushes Manufacturers today are pushing their tooling harder and using in-machine deburring rather than secondary machines to precondition larger burrs on materials such as ductile iron and compact graphite iron. In response, most brush suppliers have developed products that are both aggressive and compliant. Newer flaments can do what the regular rectangular flaments cannot: Tey conform to a complex shape. Tese new brush lines include products that work well for removing large burrs on Inconel and other high nickel materials typically found in the aerospace industry. Maintaining Rough Surfaces Certain industries actually run into problems with surface fnishes being too smooth after deburring with an advanced technology brush. For example, in the automotive industry, if the surface of some fnished parts is too smooth, gaskets will not seal properly, which translates into a part that will not perform correctly. Certain parts need to have the same surface roughness (or perhaps even a rougher surface) after burrs are removed as before. Stainless steel wire disc brushes are ideal for deburring in these applications because they remove the burrs, yet maintain or roughen the deburred surface. In order to help fnishers receive the best overall value, brush makers and products fnishing solution providers must be responsive to the customer's needs and set standards for fnishing products that help reduce cycle times, provide an excellent return on investment and cut consumable costs.
