Cleaning/Passivating Grinding/Abrasives

Milwaukee, Wisconsin – PFERD miniature brushes for cleaning and light deburring give users a competitive advantage by providing highly repeatable deburring and surface-conditioning results on a variety of materials, from hard alloys to soft aluminum. The cleaning action of these brushes removes sharp cross-hole burrs, metal sliver residues, and sharp corners that result from the drilling of close-tolerance hard metallic and non-metallic parts.

The lineup of wheel, cup, and end configurations includes stem-mounted miniature brushes.

The brushes are available with a wide selection of filaments, including: carbon steel wire, stainless steel (INOX), brass wire, aluminum oxide abrasive filament, and a variety of soft or stiff natural bristles. All the stem-mounted miniature brushes are mounted on 0.125". stems, and are recommended for use with variable speed die grinders. Wheel brushes come in diameters up to 1.5", cup in 0.5625" diameter and end configuration to 0.3125" diameter.

The M-BRAD 6.12 nylon microfilament evenly encapsulates various abrasive grit particles on the surface as well as throughout the filament. The flexibility of strands makes it effective when deburring complex parts. It yields consistent gradual cutting action, permitting precise control in applications ranging from cosmetic surface preparation on brass or soft aluminum, to edge blending on materials as tough as titanium and carbide. In addition, M-BRAD brushes offer longer tool life than non-woven synthetic abrasive products, and are suitable for both wet and dry surface conditioning, although the use of coolant is recommended. M-BRAD is also available as an aluminum oxide filament.
