Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of the Flex-Hone® tool and a full line of industrial brushes, is announcing the new NamPower™ Resource Guide for manufacturers who want to automate surface finishing, deburring, and edge radiusing operations. NamPower™ brushing tools are high-performance industrial brushes used in high-volume applications such as appliance manufacturing.

Available on the BRM website, the NamPower™ Resource Guide spans seven full-color pages and explains how to choose and use NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes and NamPower™ composite hub wheel brushes. This free technical book is also available in print.

NamPower™ Abrasive Disc Brushes

NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes are easily integrated into automated machinery, CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells. Made with flexible nylon filaments with ceramic and silicon carbide abrasive, these high-performance abrasive brushes provide maximum burr removal rates and produce an optimum surface finish at the same time.

BRM offers two types of NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes (dot and turbine) in three sizes (100, 125, and 150 mm), two trim lengths (18 and 38 mm), and with four grit choices (80, 120, 180, and 320). The NamPower™ Resource Guide explains which type of brush to select, and how to evaluate selection and usage criteria such as trim length and grit. Operational parameters such as speed are also considered.

NamPower™ Composite Hub Wheel Brushes

NamPower™ composite hub wheel brushes are abrasive nylon brushing tools for machine-based and off-hand deburring, surface finishing, and edge radiusing operations. An alternative to wire wheels and non-woven abrasive brushes, NamPower™ radial wheel brushes feature indestructible cores with higher filament density and a balanced construction.

BRM offers NamPower™ composite hub wheel in two sizes (6-inch and 8-inch diameters). As the new NamPower™ Resource Guide explains, grit selection is also an important parameter to consider. Other product specifications for these radial wheel brushes include face width, cut depth, feed rate, and arbor adaptors.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
