Fiber abrasive brushes are being used to deburr molded plastic pieces for the medical products industry. The Bradex® fiber abrasive brushes are utilized by a company that manufactures plastic trays for surgical and medical kits. These trays are thermoformed using medical grade thermoplastics that can be sterilized before packaging. Previously, removing the burr that results from the molding process had been a hand operation. This was time consuming and the quality depended on operator skill. Today, the company uses Bradex 2 in. diameter, maximum density, hex-drive, disc brushing tools at a speed of 1,500 RPMs.
