Thermal Gap Filler – A good helper for thermal conductivity

This is a reliable heat transfer media with good thermal conductivity and low thermal resistance, which is perfectly conform to surface gaps and irregularities to fill the air gaps and conduct heat from a heat source to another surface, or heat sink. Where space exists between two mating surfaces varies, whether from different shapes or rough surface textures, a thermal transfer concern is often present. Available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and thermal conductivity. Thermal Interface Materials offer excellent thermal transfer properties across a wide gap range, and…

De-glaze cylinder walls

Engine cylinders need a substantially smooth surface finish that’s free from cut, torn, and folded metal. Yet cylinder walls can be so smooth that engine performance suffers. Over time, the up-and-down movement of pistons creates an overly smooth surface finish. Piston rings skate along cylinder walls and fail to seat and seal properly. The “glaze” that forms can also prevent engine oil from adhering properly.  The solution to these challenges is the Flex-Hone® tool from Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM). This Made in the USA glaze-breaker hone removes burrs, deglazes cylinder walls, and…

A cost-effective burr removal for machined metal parts

By integrating flexible hones in the machining process, complex parts with cross-drilled holes and other difficult-to-access features can be deburred in house, at less cost. In automated machining, removal of burrs and sharp edges in cross-drilled holes and other difficult-to-access areas such as undercuts, grooves, slots, or internal holes can be tedious and time consuming.  One particular challenge is deburring the intersection of cross-drilled holes frequently found in engine and transmission components. Despite the challenges, the removal of burrs from the production process is an absolute must for high quality,…

Small diameter Flex-Hone® tools are helping CNC machine to reduce cycle times and finishing time

Flex-Hone abrasive tools from Brush Research Manufacturing provides fine surface finishes on CNC machined parts. The abrasive tools are inserted into the toolholder and programmed with a simple toolpath to process internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes. To produce tight tolerance parts at a faster rate and remain profitable in a highly competitive market, machine shops constantly look for creative ways to improve on overall cycle time, including speeding metal finishing operations. Although machine shops may have some auxiliary finishing equipment, their primary…

Brake rotors need a non-directional or “basket weave” finish. Do you know why?

Slotted brake rotors contain machined grooves that help dissipate the heat that’s produced by braking. In racing, motorsports, and even regular driving, friction causes a layer of gas and dust to form between the brake pad and the brake rotor. Over time, this material transfer layer can impede performance.  Slotted rotors help to reduce friction, but surface contact between pads and rotors eventually requires rotor resurfacing. For optimum brake performance, brake rotors require a non-directional or “basket weave” finish that’s free from deposits of brake pad material.  To achieve this…

Flex-Hone tools can remove rust and corrosion from the inner diameters (ID) of metal pipes

Throughout the oil and gas industry, ongoing maintenance is often required to remove rust, corrosion and other accumulated material from the inside diameter (ID) of valves, pumps, piping, diesel engines, motors, natural gas compressors and other large bore equipment. Failing to do so can have severe consequences including reducing equipment service life, causing unplanned shutdowns and degrading performance. For much of this equipment, critical ID tolerances of cylinders and bores must be maintained to ensure proper performance of everything from hydraulic cylinders used in pumps to big bore engines. Nowhere…
