Rex-Cut Product’s Type 1 cotton-fiber abrasive wheels expose fresh abrasives as they work and do not change part geometry, making them suited for automated finishing applications on precision stainless steel parts. They feature multiple layers of non-woven cotton fabric impregnated with aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasives that are compressed with varying-bond hardness.
The wheels are available in sizes from 1- to 8-inch OD and ⅛- to ½-inch thick. They also are suitable for use on stainless steel, aluminum, steel and exotic alloys.
The company’s cotton-fiber mounted points also reveal fresh abrasives as they deburr and finish in one step, making them suited for end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) in automated metal deburring and finishing applications. They feature multiple layers of non-woven cotton fiber and either aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasive grains that are pressed and bonded into standard A, B and W shapes.
The mounted points are available in hard and soft bonds, and can be produced in custom shapes and sizes for finishing slots, seams, internal cavities and other applications without changing part geometry. They also are suitable for stainless steel, titanium, Inconel, exotics and aluminum.
