Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM) provides Flex-Hone® tools and industrial abrasive brushes to hydraulic toolmakers that manufacture high-quality hydraulic cylinders, pumps, jacks, and valves. The Flex-Hone® is used to remove burrs after boring and improve surface finish to precise standards. If the hydraulic cylinder finish is too rough, the U-cups and seals may wear out. If the cylinder surface is too smooth, the hydraulic seals may leak.

With the Flex-Hone® tool, manufacturers of hydraulic equipment can obtain the proper finish in the cylinder bore every time. For hard materials that require specialized surface finishing, the Diamond Flex-Hone® is available for any type of hydraulic cylinder in standard sizes ranging from 4-mm to 1-1/2". The Flex-Hone® tool is also available in a variety of abrasive types, sizes, and grits for use with hydraulic motor bodies. BRM products include abrasive nylon brushes for cleaning and deburring machined threads.
