General Industrial

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) supplies industrial component and equipment manufacturers with a full line of abrasive finishing tools and industrial abrasive brushes. The leading choice for in-line surface finishing and deburring, the Flex-Hone® can be used either during machine tool applications (on-line) or as a secondary operation (off-line). BRM's revolutionary Diamond Flex-Hone® is ideal for finishing chromed and plated bores, guide and drill bushings, ceramic cylinders, electrical discharge machining (EDM) layers, and carbide wear parts.

The Flex-Hone® is recommended for general industrial applications that require surface finishing, deburring, and edge blending of metal parts. BRM also provides industrial abrasive brushes such as crimped wire wheels, knotted wire wheels, and knotted wire cups for cleaning, surface preparation, polishing, and roughening. Brush holders and drive arbors for NamPower abrasive brushes can be used in automated finishing machinery such as CNC machining centers, transfer lines, and robotic cells.
