Cotton Fiber Finishing Sticks match openings and holes.

January 14, 2014

Designed for deburring and finishing precision cast or machined parts, Rex-Cut® Cotton Fiber Finishing Sticks are made from reinforced nonwoven cotton fiber with aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasives, which are pressed and bonded together into different profile shapes and sizes. Units come in 1/8–1 in. dia round and square sizes in 4–6 in. lengths, with grain sizes from 24–320. Suitable for removing exit burrs in difficult-to-reach internal spaces, sticks will not change part’s geometry. Read More

Stationary Dressers keep grinding wheel sharp and in service.

January 21, 2013

Available for aluminum oxide and other conventional wheels on grinding machines that are not equipped with rotary dresser, hDD (Hybrid Diamond Dressing) and cDD (Hybrid matrix with CVD diamond inserts) stationary dressing tools do not have to be relapped or returned to manufacturer for repositioning of diamond insert. CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) diamond inserts in stationary cDD dressing tools have microcrystalline structure that readily breaks down for continuous self-sharpening. Read More

Rotary Diamond Dressers optimize grinding processes.

October 7, 2009

Electric, variable-speed dressing and truing systems (DTS) employ spindles that operate using custom-engineered brushless DC servomotors. These units drive diamond truing rolls and produce as well as maintain precision contours in grinding wheels. Compact spindles allow units to fit limited-space areas and can be viable replacements for single-point, hydraulic, and pneumatic dressers. Via available control packages, spindle speed and direction may be selected manually or through CNC. Read More

Hybrid Diamond Dressing Tools never require conditioning.

May 30, 2008

Designed to dress CBN grinding wheels, hDD Tools feature natural porosity of vitrified bond structure. Manufacturing process mechanically and chemically bonds diamond particles within tool to insure they will be held securely. Metal posts that attach to diamond crystals in bonding matrix can be slender, allowing for large pores to be distributed between crystals. Since dressing tools remain consistently sharp, surface of CBN wheel is restored to same condition after every dressing cycle. Read More
