XEBEC Brush™ Surface

Cup-type/ End-type

Structure of ceramic fiber

XEBEC Brush Surface uses abrasive ceramic fiber material instead of abrasive grain. One single bristle has 1,000 cutting edges, providing excellent cutting ability. 
 

The ceramic fiber has 3 features: "high grinding power", "tip-to-tip consistent performance" and "no deformation".
It enables the automation of deburring and polishing.

Each bristle is made by fixing 500-1000 ceramic fibers, each together with a binder.

Sterngth 1: High grinding power

Free of abrasive grains.The fiber content ratio is approximately 80%.

Our uniquely developed ceramic fibers themselves are the abrasive; their fiber content ratio is over 80%. The thousands of cutting edges that are made up of the ends of each individual fiber create overpowering grinding power.

Handles all sorts of materials up to HRC 65.

The brushes can process general materials up to HRC65. They can handle hard-to-cut and super hard materials from general metals, aluminum, and resin, to SUS, Inconel, and Titanium.

Comparison of grinding capacity with other companies’products.

The XEBEC Brush Surface has 60 times higher grinding power compared with nylon brushes and consistently remove burrs.

・XEBEC Brush™ Surface Grinding aprox.0.22g in 10 sec
・Brass Brush Not grinding
・Nylon brush Not grinding

Strength 2: Stable grinding performance to the end

Self-sharpening unique to ceramic fiber.

Through the self-sharpening of cutting edges on the fiber ends, the brushes do not become clogged, and new, fresh cutting edges are always exposed. The stability of performance makes true automation possible.

Strength 3: No deformation

They maintain their straight shape, and do not spread out like a toothbrush; suitable for automated deburring and polishing in mass production line.

Amazing polishing capacity

 The superfine fibers, measured in micrometers, can improve surface roughness in a short time.

How to Use

Target

Because XEBEC brush has high grinding power on the tip, the brush tip needs to be in contact with the processing area (the part where burring occurs).
By setting up cutting depth, the tool can handle both vertical burr that occurs from drilling or end milling as well as horizontal burr that occurs from milling.
 
Avoid coming into contact with a protruding part, because it may damage the brush.
 

For successful applications please see the support page.

Apparatuses that can mount the tool

The tool can be mounted on apparatuses that control the rotation speed.
The tool can be used not only on machining centers, combined lathes, robots and special machines, but drilling machines as well.
 

For more usage instructions please see the support page.

Lineup

How to select XEBEC Brush Surface

The material (color) of the brush varies depending on difference of grinding power. Refer to the chart below and select the brush bristles (color) based on information such as the workpiece material and base thickness of burr.

Please see the support page for additional information.
