Processing conditions

How to engage

From the top view, the best approach is to place a center of a brush at the center angle to the edge. (Figure 1)
Burrs on Face A and B can be both removed.
Edge quality becomes stable if a brush is rotated in both clockwise and counter-clockwise directions.
Brush position on the Figure 2 is effective for burrs on Face A in the same way as figure 3 for burrs on Face B.

How to set processing conditions

In case the depth of cut is excessive, the Brush may break off.
Please follow the processing conditions.

Initial processing conditions
Product code Cutting speed
Rotational speed
Feed per bundle
Depth of cut

W-A11-75 250 1000 0.5 0.2 3000

*As bristles are worn out, bristle length becomes shorter and increases stiffness, causing bristles to be broken.
If bristles breakage occurs, decrease the depth of cut.

If burrs are too large

Use multiple passes as described below.

Gradually move the brush closer to the bottom of burrs. Increase the depth of cut step by step.

If trying to remove burrs in just 1 pass, it may cause excessive tool wear, tool breakage or burr may not be removed. Calculate the maximum height of burs before using the tool.

Dry or wet machining

The tool can be used for both dry and wet (oil-based and water-soluble) machining.
Wet machining may improve surface finish quality and tool life.

How to adjust wear amount

Macro program

To use the XEBEC Brush Wheel Type, the depth of cut must be kept small. It is necessary to offset the wear amount in a radial direction.

Use a macro program or manually offset the wear amount. Refer to the example below.

How to Adjust

If burrs remain

  1. Increase the number of passes
  2. Decrease the feed rate in 10 to 20% increments

To extend tool life

Increase the feed rate in 10 to 20% increments
