XEBEC Stone™ Flexible Shaft FAQ

XEBEC Stone™ Flexible Shaft

What is the XEBEC Ceramic Stone Flexible Shaft made of?

It is made of ceramic stone for mold polishing. The entire surface of the ceramic stone has grinding power.

What kind of workpiece material can be machined?

Workpiece materials including metals of HRC57 or less such as stainless steel, aluminum alloy, general steel material and copper, as well as resin.

Is it possible to perform deburring on a secondary processing hole?

Yes, it is possible to remove back burrs by contouring.

Is it possible to use with a pneumatic tool?

The shaft will break if you use it at high rotation speed on a pneumatic tool, so be absolutely sure to use it on an electric tool that can control the rotation speed. The maximum rotation speeds are:
Head diameter Φ3mm 15,000min-1
Head diameter Φ4mm 13,000min-1
Head diameter Φ5mm 12,000min-1
Head diameter Φ6mm 10,000min-1
Head diameter Φ10mm 6,000min-1
For more information on usage method, please see the Products page.

What are the size lineups for the XEBEC Stone Flexible Shaft?

For the ball type, there are 5 diameter sizes: Φ3mm, Φ4mm, Φ5mm, Φ6mm and Φ10mm.
For the cylinder type, there are 4 diameter sizes: Φ3mm, Φ4mm, Φ5mm, and Φ6mm.
Please see the Lineup page.

Is it possible to select the grit?

Select from 3 standard grits (equivalent to #220, #400 or #800).

How long is the tool life?

According to XEBEC test data, the tool life is over 30 times longer than rubber stone with flexible shaft and over 10 times longer than grinding stone with vitrified shaft.

Is it possible to make the stones which diameter is smaller than 3mm?

No, this is not possible, because the shaft diameter is 1.5mm and the embedded part of the shaft would occupy most of the surface area of the ceramic stone.

Is it possible to make a special order item?

Yes, we provide services such as modification of the shape of the grinding stone on the tip of standard products. Contact us for more information.
