BRM Announces NamPower™ Brush Tools for Fine Blanking; Industrial Brushes Help Manufacturers Automate Deburring and Surface Finishing

May 24, 2013 - "Press Releases"

Los Angeles, CA- Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) announces their NamPower™ brush tools for fine blanking. Fine blanking is a method of manufacturing pertaining to making high-volume, high-precision parts. NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes are made to provide maximum burr removal rates and better-quality surface finishing all at once. Many manufacturers in a large range of industries are quickly learning about this.

The NamPower™ industrial brush offers a cost-effective alternative to manual deburring and surface finishing operations. The top-quality BRM brush tools integrate easily with plant machinery, CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells. BRM’s NamPower brushes provide a total finishing solution from metal finishing prior to plating to deburring after fine blanking.

Fine Blanking for High-Volume, High-Quality Parts Production

Fine blanking uses a combination of metal stamping and cold extrusion technologies to manufacture high-volume, high-precision parts. Using specially designed tooling and a triple-action hydraulic press, manufactures can make metal parts with fully-shaped, straight-cut edges. Fine blanking is also used to manufacture components with small holes, excellent flatness, and thin web sections.

Fine blanking is highly repeatable with little dimensional variation. Invented almost 100 years ago, this highly-precise manufacturing process is now used to mass produce power tools, multi-tool components, and knife blades. Industrial applications for fine blanking tooling and fine blanking presses include the production of electronic components and auto parts.

Fine Blanking Dies and Quality Control

Fine blanking equipment produces parts with near-zero clearance and precise tolerances. However, over time, the dies wear out and impart sharp edges to metal surfaces. These extruded edges often contain burrs, unwanted pieces of metal that can injure those handling the material, damage seals, increase mechanical wear, interfere with lubrication, and lead to premature part failure. Metal burrs that break free from fine blanked parts can also damage equipment and machinery.

NamPower Abrasive Disc Brushes for Automated Deburring

For the high-volume production of fine blanked auto parts and electronic components, manufacturers need a cost-effective alternative to hand tools. That’s why Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) offers NamPower™ abrasive disc brushes, professional-grade deburring tools for automated machinery, CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells.

Made with a molded, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic base, these high-quality industrial brushes are designed for use with a flow-through coolant holder. By allowing coolant to flow from the brush center instead of supplying lubricant only from the outside, NamPower™ arbors also provide improved cutting action and longer tool life.

Surface Finishing Solutions for Manufacturing

NamPower brush tools enable fine blankers to perform deburring and surface finishing operations at the same time. Parts manufacturers can also use NamPower abrasive disc brushes for edge radiusing, parts cleaning, and rust removal. From metal finishing prior to plating to deburring after fine blanking, BRM’s NamPower brushes provide a total finishing solution.
