The power of abrasive materials is well documented. The powerful effects available from repeatedly rubbing and cutting into a surface with an abrasive substance are instrumental to the manufacturing industry through centered powdered metal brush deburring. One of the most consistent ways to achieve repeatable and consistent metal brush deburring is with the use of nylon-based abrasive brushing systems.
To achieve the consistent results possible through abrasion, nylon-based abrasive brushing systems use brush filaments coated with abrasive elements such as ceramic media, diamond, Cubic Boron Nitride or silicon carbide. Extrusion of the elements creates an abrasive element on each of the brush filaments, each having the ability to provide everything from gentle to aggressive abrasion. Unlike a brush that runs across the teeth or through the hair, the abrasive filaments present in abrasive brush machining wear naturally, exposing fresh abrasive filament through the abrasive action. This versatility makes it a smart choice for machining processes that require a consistent approach like the deburring the edges of centered powdered metal parts.

Customizable Powdered Metal Brush Deburring Options
In order to achieve consistent results with high tolerance control it’s important to control variables. By understanding the unique needs of deburring powdered metal parts, Cleveland Machine Deburring Company (CDMC) can offer precision machining with tolerances of .0001”. CDMC’s specialized machines offer the option to create endless combinations using the variables of density, diameter, configuration and trim length. Manufacturers can choose bristles for these operations that are round, rectangle or crimped with additional customizations of grit size, filament diameter and ratio of abrasive grains to nylon also available.
