Los Angeles, CA September 04, 2014

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), American-owned supplier of flexible hones and nylon abrasive brushes, is announcing plans to attend the 2014 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) from September 8 to 13 at Chicago's McCormick Place. The industrial brush manufacturer is also announcing the release of a new technical article and IMTS video about BRM NamPower brushing tools.

IMTS 2014 is America's largest manufacturing technology tradeshow. With over 1 million sq. ft. of exhibit space and more than 1900 exhibitors, this year's event will feature over 15,000 products and processes. Held biennially, IMTS fills nine pavilions and includes conference sessions where part manufacturers, machine tool specialists, and industrial distributors can learn about new technologies.

Automated Deburring, Edge Radiusing, and Surface Finishing

As a new technical article from BRM explains, NamPower nylon abrasive brushes are ideal for deburring, edge radiusing, and surface finishing the outer diameter (OD) of parts. Additional applications include surface preparation and cleaning. With their high-quality components and balanced construction, NamPower brushing tools are easily integrated with automated machinery such as CNC equipment.

By automating operations, NamPower users are replacing time-consuming manual deburring while improving part quality. NamPower abrasive brushes conform closely to part contours and remove burrs consistently. Like BRM Flex-Hone® tools, they can be used with CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells.

Burr Removal, Surface Finish Improvement, and Ease-of-Use

As BRM's latest NamPower video shows, the family of NamPower brush tools includes abrasive nylon disc brushes, abrasive hex-drive tools, composite hub wheels, and accessories such as lightweight tool holders with flow-through cooling. BRM also supplies composite hub wheel adaptors for improved brush support, longer tool life, and reduced brush vibration.

NamPower abrasive disc brushes come in two types: dot for light deburring and general-purpose use, and turbine for medium and heavy-duty deburing. NamPower abrasive hex-drive tools have a unique Hex-Drive System that allows these brushing tools to turn in both directions for full 360° finishing. NamPower composite hub wheel brushes feature indestructible cores and silicon carbide or diamond abrasive filaments.
