Structure of ceramic fiber
XEBEC Brush Surface uses abrasive ceramic fiber material instead of abrasive grain. One single bristle has 1,000 cutting edges, providing excellent cutting ability.
The ceramic fiber has 3 features: „high grinding power”, „tip-to-tip consistent performance” and „no deformation”.
It enables the automation of deburring and polishing.
Each bristle is made by fixing 500-1000 ceramic fibers, each together with a binder.
Free of abrasive grains.The fiber content ratio is approximately 80%.
Our uniquely developed ceramic fibers themselves are the abrasive; their fiber content ratio is over 80%. The thousands of cutting edges that are made up of the ends of each individual fiber create overpowering grinding power.
Handles all sorts of materials up to HRC 65.
The brushes can process general materials up to HRC65. They can handle hard-to-cut and super hard materials from general metals, aluminum, and resin, to SUS, Inconel, and Titanium.
Comparison of grinding capacity with other companies’products.
The XEBEC Brush Surface has 60 times higher grinding power compared with nylon brushes and consistently remove burrs.
・XEBEC Brush™ Surface Grinding aprox.0.22g in 10 sec
・Brass Brush Not grinding
・Nylon brush Not grinding
Strength 2: Stable grinding performance to the end
Self-sharpening unique to ceramic fiber.
Comparison of substantivity with other companies’ products
Strength 3: No deformation
They maintain their straight shape, and do not spread out like a toothbrush; suitable for automated deburring and polishing in mass production line.

Amazing polishing capacity
The superfine fibers, measured in micrometers, can improve surface roughness in a short time.

Brass brush –Surface roughness is not improved
Nylon impregnated brush/ Improving approx. 0.10.5μm in 10sec
How to Use
Because XEBEC brush has high grinding power on the tip, the brush tip needs to be in contact with the processing area (the part where burring occurs).
By setting up cutting depth, the tool can handle both vertical burr that occurs from drilling or end milling as well as horizontal burr that occurs from milling.
Avoid coming into contact with a protruding part, because it may damage the brush.
For successful applications please see the support page.
Apparatuses that can mount the tool
The tool can be mounted on apparatuses that control the rotation speed.
The tool can be used not only on machining centers, combined lathes, robots and special machines, but drilling machines as well.
For more usage instructions please see the support page.
How to select XEBEC Brush Surface
The material (color) of the brush varies depending on difference of grinding power. Refer to the chart below and select the brush bristles (color) based on information such as the workpiece material and base thickness of burr.
Please see the support page for additional information.
XEBEC Brush Surface Cup type Lineup
|Product code||Ceramic Fiber Rod (color)||Diameter||Corresponding sleeve (Product code)||Maximum rotation speed|
- One row of bristle is embedded around the periphery (Except for the A13/A11/A21/A31-CB06M and end-types)
- Be absolutely certain to mount the brush to the sleeve for use
XEBEC Sleeve Lineup
|Type||Product code||Axis core diameter||Sleeve external diameter||Full length(Inc Axis)||Corresponding brush(Product code)||Maximum rotation speed|
- The external cylinder of the S15M-P is made of fiber reinforced plastic(FRP)
- S40M-SD10, which has a φ10 shank, is released on August 1, 2016.
- Please contact us if you would like S40M, which has a φ8 shank.
- The fullnlength is only the length of the sleeve. When in use, the length of the brush projection is added.
XEBEC Brush Surface Extra Large Lineup
It is recommended to use for deburring and polishing large workpieces with a width of 100mm or greater.
XEBEC Brush Surface End Type Lineup
|Product code||Ceramic Fiber Rod(color)||Diameter||Shank diameter||Maximum rotation speed|
- With the end-type, the brush and shank are a combined unit, so a sleeve is not used .
