What's in the box - (Item #0629940)
Your In-machine Deburring Kit consists of:
• One 4”, V-tufted, Abtex-manufactured
silicon-carbide deburring brush capable
of quickly eliminating dangerous burrs
from machined steel or aluminum parts
• One Abtex 1” drive arbor, with a center
hole to allow coolant feed, designed
for easy mounting in your machine
Quick, simple installation
You simply mount the brush to the arbor
and the arbor to your machine.
You’re up and running in minutes.

• High-quality brush, with thousands of
finishing your parts
• Simple Installation
• Quick and easy brush changes
• Everything you need in one box
|Machined Part Deburr
Challenge: Customer is doing small runs of this and other machined parts and is looking for a better way to remove remaining burrs.
Current process: After removal from the machining center the operator with various hand tools works at removing the burrs while the next part is machined.
|Abtex Solution: To achieve more consistent results the deburring operation was moved into the machining center and done with abrasive nylon brushes made by Abtex. One of our 4” 80 grit disc brushes was able to remove the burrs and at the same time provide a light edge radius to what were before sharp areas on the part. With the help of modified fixturing multiple parts can now be machined and deburred leaving the operator free and reducing repetitive motion issues.|
Challenge: Customer is turning down a large volume of polycarbonate plastic shells on a lathe to reduce their diameter. The cutting tool leaves a "stringy" burr as shown in the "before" picture.
Current process: Customer was using deburring knife by hand to remove excess material/burrs. The process is time consuming given the complex geometry of the part and risks repetitive motion injury for the operator.
|Abtex Solution: Abtex recommended contacting the rotating part in the lathe with a 6", .040"/80 grit radial wheel brush. The lathe operator holds the stationary radial wheel against the rotating polycarbonate shell to remove burrs in one direction. The lathe operator then reverses lathe direction and again holds the radial wheel against the shell. As seen in the "after" photo, burrs are completely removed.
Time/labor saved: Approximately 1 minute/part
