Metal Finishing
For the surface conditioning of a variety of metal surfaces, Brush Firm provides a full line of metal finishing brushes. The automotive, aerospace, military, HVAC, and sheet metal processing industries are just a few of the manufacturing sectors that make use of metal finishing brushes from Brush Firm. We provide a range of twisted, disc, and rotary brushes for applications including surface conditioning and deburring. We design brushes that rigorously meet the requirements of both interior and external parts finishing by closely collaborating with parts and component manufacturers as well as metal fabricators. We have a lot of experience supplying brushes to OEM Equipment Builders and

End Users to achieve different brushed finishes on sheet products made of aluminium, brass, carbon steel, and stainless steel. Wide Face Brushes can be used to deburr drilled sheets and tube ends. We offer Brushes in High Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, and Brass Coated Carbon Steel for deeper surface treatments and heavier De-burring. We provide abrasive brushes made of silicon carbide and aluminium oxide for finer surface finishes and lighter deburring. Our line of abrasive brushes for metal works to smooth down sharp edges and condition internal component surfaces with a consistent filament dispersion, resulting in a smooth, even finish. Brush conditioning offers substantial advantages in raising throughput and improving cutting action in addition to working to remove any potential loose metal and remove flakes that can contaminate or damage typical machinery functioning. To get the intended outcome in a repeatable manner, it is essential to use the proper bristle type, bristle length, bristle density, and operating conditions. We may offer that expertise by drawing on our knowledge base or developing a brand-new finish after evaluating your sample product. We only need a control sample of the finish you want to use, and that’s all. Fill up our custom brush form or send us a sample of your product for evaluation. We’ll offer you an economical solution with a key objective to bring down your production costs while using our brushes for metal finishing application.

Deburr – To remove chips, fines, or other material fragments from your product, deburring brushes are utilised. Our brushes are capable of improving your product.

Metal – Metal items are finished by removing burrs, changing chips, or chards from your product with a wire-filled brush or a synthetic-filled brush. One brush revolving on one side of your product or passing between two brushes rotating in the opposite direction can do this.

Wood – To achieve the appropriate finish, wood goods are brushed using a wire or nylon brush that has been treated with abrasive material. After that, dust or chips are removed from the products using a nylon or natural filament brush.

Power Brushes Applications
Power brushes are mostly used for deburring. Metal undergoes several shaping and trimming procedures during the manufacturing process, leaving behind tiny pieces of metal called burrs. Power brushes work well to get rid of these burrs and leave behind a tidy, finished product. Brush Firm offers power brushes to efficiently deburr materials of any form or size, including small, irregularly shaped portions as well as big, flat plane surfaces. Power brushes can function in almost any environment, including high temperature, corrosive, damp, or sparking situations, owing to the diversity of available filaments and endless design criteria. Finding the ideal power brush is quite flexible because little changes in the trim length, diameter, or fill density have a significant impact on the brush’s overall performance. Brush Firm is able to supply or create a sturdy power

brush to match practically any size or shape of equipment, saving time and money by adhering to the requirements of the current equipment.

Surface finishing: At various points during the machining process, brushes are used to smooth out and enhance surfaces. The surface particles can be removed by the brushes without changing the product’s dimensions.

Edge blending: By reducing stress concentrations and part fatigue, power brushes are utilised to round or blend corners.

Cleaning: Power brushes are used to remove surface particles in wet or dry applications.
Roughening: Surface roughening is done with power brushes to improve adherence before bonding or painting.
