Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of industrial brush tools and flexible hones, is announcing tradeshow plans for the Eastern States Exposition (EASTEC 2013) from May 14 to 16 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Visit BRM at EASTEC in Booth # 5000.

Mike Miller, BRM Vice President of Global Sales, and Josh Neugass, BRM Technical Services Specialist, will represent the Los Angeles, California company and showcase its Diamond Flex-Hone® tools and NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes, complete solutions for deburring and surface finishing.

Sponsored by the Society for Manufacturing Engineers (SME), EASTEC 2013 is where forward-thinking manufacturers connect. SME is a global leader in promoting manufacturing workforce development, technological innovation, and technical information.

Diamond Flex-Hone® Tools Surface Finish and Deburr Hard Materials

BRM Diamond Flex-Hone® technology is used for deburring, edge blending, and surface finishing hard materials such as carbides, ceramics, and aerospace alloys. Precision-engineered for rapid cut rates, BRM's long-lasting diamond hones provide optimal finish and offer excellent heat dissipation.

The aerospace industry uses BRM diamond hones to surface finish aircraft structures, helicopter drive shafts, hydraulic control mechanisms, and swivel components. Military customers use BRM diamond honing tools to machine high-quality holes and avoid the loss of strength and temper.

Diamond honing tools are also ideal for surface finishing medical parts. Other manufacturers use Diamond Flex-Hone® technology to surface finish carbide wear rings, guide and drill bushings, chromed and plated bores, ceramic cylinders, and electrical discharge machining (EDM) layers.

NamPower™ Industrial Brushes Automate Deburring and Surface Finishing

BRM NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes are easily integrated into automated machinery, CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells. Manual surface finishing and deburring tools are suitable for hobbyists, but manufacturers need NamPower™ technology for automating finishing and deburring operations with high-volume parts.

NamPower™ brush tools feature a combination of ceramic and silicon carbide filaments. These high-performance abrasive disc brushes work like flexible files, conforming to part contours while wiping and filing across part edges and surfaces. For less vibration and more repeatability, NamPower™ brushes also use a molded, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic base.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
