Ideal for precise deburring, edge filleting and surface finishing of milled, flat precision parts in a CNC machine tool or a robot cell, high-tech Garant disc brushes from Hoffmann Group USA (Knoxville, TN) can boost efficiency and create higher precision during the finishing process by providing an automated way of directly finishing workpieces immediately after the machining process with reproducible, reliable results. This means less time spent on setup and improved throughput. Applied immediately after machining, Garant disc brushes reliably remove unwanted burrs and fine milling marks. They are also the perfect choice for precisely brushing down workpieces that have been produced using a sintering, punching, die-casting or pressing process, and for creating smooth surfaces. Even finish-machining valve plates with internal labyrinths is a breeze.
Using maximum-density yet flexible bristles, these disc brushes can deburr complex components without manipulating their shape. Firmly cast in place and impregnated with abrasive grit, the nylon bristles will not break off even at high speeds and produce a strong, consistent brushing effect due to the high proportion of abrasive grit they contain – which means burr-free, smoothly ground surfaces plus an exceptionally long service life and controllable wear behavior. Garant disc brushes are particularly well suited to wet machining and are compatible with all measuring head and combination face mill adapters. If required, they can be adapted specifically to suit specific needs.
