CARBIDE BURRS FOR DEBURRING AND GRINDING
Carbide burrs, come in various shapes and sizes. It’s important to check the tools carefully to avoid ending up with the wrong type for your burr grinder.
A simple way to help you decide which carbide burrs to purchase is by identifying which cut is required. The end result you are after will determine the type of carbide burr you are after. Similarly what type of shank you require is important, a rounded 6mm or hex shank that fits your portable drill.
The most common shapes of carbide burrs are the ball, tree, inverted cone, pointed cone, ball nose and cylinder burr with end cut. They all differ from one another in terms of purpose.
Cylindrical carbide burrs with end cuts, in particular, are ideal for contour finishing or surfaces with curved edges. The end cut on the carbide burr allows your drill to reach areas with angles to ensure a refined material.
This cylindrical carbide burr with end cut is made with tungsten, which is commonly used in heavy metal alloys. The tungsten carbide has a grading of K20, meaning it can withstand high impact with other hard metal surfaces such as alloy steel and stainless steel.
It also has a double-cut type that provides more cutting edges to the product. This way, you are able to remove more material faster than using a single-cut type grinder.
This product features left-hand flutes that effectively reduce the pulling action of the grinder and gives you better control of the machine. As a result, it reduces the size of chips on the metal and helps you achieve superior results.
Moreover, you can adjust your grinder at a lower speed and still be able to get extra fine finishing using these cylindrical tools.
