素材が違うから研削力が違う! -徹底的に切れ味を追求しました!-

Making use of cutting-edge ceramic fiber technology, XEBEC Technology offers new and innovative grinding stones and deburring tools. Operating in the fields of polishing and grinding which traditionally had been dominated by abrasive grains, we challenged the market by taking a scientific approach in introducing ceramic fiber.
Using this unique material made from our own original ceramic fiber, our grinding stones and deburring tools are equipped with a function which allows continuous and stable cutting performance. Its self-sharpening action ensures long-lasting, superior polishing performance.
This deburring tool can realize automated deburring, and has been adapted by domestic forefront manufacturers, as well as in international markets.
This tool is to improve both efficiency and product quality in your manufacturing operations.
Developing innovative Japanese materials and tools, XEBEC Technology strives to continually contribute to craftsmanship around the world.

Structure
Consistent rigidity A single ceramic fiber bristle is made by binding together 1,000 ceramic fiber filaments(diameter ø10μm for red bristle and ø15μm for white bristle).

So this structure maintains a consistent rigidity and there is virtually no fiber bristle configurational change in the deburring process.
The abrasive grain is impregnated in nylon.
The nylon base gives it flexibility but low rigidity.

So there is bristle configurational change in the deburring process.
Superior grinding performance Approximately 75% of the total weight consists of ceramic fibers;

continuous and high-density cutting edges on the ceramic fiber rod tips provide stable and superior grinding performance.
Only 30% of the total weight consists of abrasive grains; its self-sharpening action is weaker, resulting in low grinding power.
Uniform fine finishing Due to the multitude of uniform ceramic fiber on the rod tips, stable and uniform finishing can be attained keeping superior grinding performance. Due to the variation of abrasive grains' diameters, it’s hard to get uniform finishes
No clogging Due to the self-sharpening action of the cutting edge on the ceramic fiber bristle tips, it’s hard to become clogged. Due to less self- sharpening action, it’s easy to become clogged.
For both dry and wet processing Due to the high thermal resistance (approx. 150℃), the grinding performance is stable even in dry processing.

Due to superior water-resistance, there is no decrease in rigidity even in wet processing, providing stable grinding performance.
Due to the low thermal resistance (approx. 90℃), the heat generated in dry processing results in decreased rigidity and molten nylon onto the workpiece.

Due to low water-resistance, rigidity and grinding performance decrease.
