Rex-Cut Cotton Fiber Abrasive Wheels Replace Unitized Wheels in Robotic Deburring Cells

FALL RIVER, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Rex-Cut Abrasives has introduced a line of Type 1 cotton fiber abrasive wheels that outperform non-woven nylon wheels in many robotics deburring cell applications.

Rex-Cut® Smooth Touch™ Type 1 Deburring Wheels are made from cotton fiber, impregnated with abrasives and a proprietary bond, to create a dense yet flexible wheel that constantly reveals fresh abrasives while deburring. Ideally suited for edge finishing in robotic deburring cells, they are comparable to 6 to 9 density unitized wheels, maintain their density while being conformable, and can be dressed for a wide variety of applications.

Capable of lasting up to 10X longer than unitized wheels, depending upon the application, Rex-Cut® Smooth Touch™ Type 1 Deburring Wheels are available in 1 to 6 dia. sizes from 1/16" to 1/4" thick in coarse, medium, and fine grits. Also well suited for manual applications, they provide the same cushioned feel as non-woven nylon and will not change a part's geometry.

Rex-Cut® Smooth Touch™ Type 1 Deburring Wheels are priced according to grit, size, and quantity. Samples and pricing are provided upon request.
