In edge preparation, the use of nylon abrasive brushes is the most effective way to produce a highly controlled, specific edge prep on the edge of any cutting tool or similar instrument. Unlike other methods – such as drag finishing or blasting – the nylon abrasive brush can be angled and focused on a specific area of the tool, as well as kept away from areas not to be touched by the abrasive material. And given that the visual evidence of reduced diameter or density of a brush is obvious to the machine operator, the breakdown of the media is more predictable versus the breakdown of mass-finishing media size, shape, chemistry, etc. In short, nylon abrasive brushes have proven to be enormously effective and efficient in edge honing. As such, MET considers the use of nylon brush media with nearly…
