How to Adjust

XEBEC Brush Surface™

If burrs remain

① Increase rotational speed
Increase the rotational speed to the maximum.
If burrs still remain, then decrease the feed rate.
② Check the rotation direction of the Brush

For horizontal burrs, up cut is recommended so that the brush tip pushes up the burrs.

③ Change the Brush color
Change the Brush with higher grinding power.
The grinding power of the Brush : Blue > White > Red > Pink
Make sure to select Brush color based on the workpiece material and burr root thickness.

If the edge is too rounded

① Increase feed rate

To make sharp edge, increase the feed rate in 1000 mm/min increments within the range where burrs can be removed.
Increasing the feed rate also helps reduce cycle time.

② Decrease rotational speed

Decrease the rotational speed in 10 to 20% increments within the range where burrs can be removed.

③ Check the Brush color

The grinding power of the Brush : Blue > White > Red > Pink
Select Brush color based on the workpiece material and burr root thickness.

To extend tool life

① Increase feed rate

Increase the feed rate in 1000 mm/min increments within the range where burrs can be removed.

② Decrease rotational speed

Decrease the rotational speed in 10 to 20% increments within the range where burrs can be removed.

If the surface becomes rough

Check the Brush color

Change the Brush with higher edge quality.
Edge quality of the Brush: Pink > Red > White > Blue
Make sure to select appropriate Brush color based on the workpiece material and burr root thickness.

To improve surface roughness

① Check the Brush color

Make sure to select appropriate Brush color.
Edge quality of the Brush 
: Pink > Red > White > Blue

② Wet machining

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

③ Increase the number of passes

When comparing in the same cycle time, increasing the number of passes makes bigger difference than decreasing feed rate.
