OD PROFILE BURNISHING

BURNISHING TOOL FOR CONTOURS & PROFILES

In applications where you need to generate a surface finish on a contoured profile, options are limited and the cost normally much higher. The Elliott OD carbide profile burnishing tool is perfect for these applications.
Monaghan and Elliott have been supplying OD carbide roll tools for decades, with many thousands of successful applications burnishing just a single diameter, or complex profiles with contours, tapers, blend radii and faces included. The tools can be used on a wide variety of materials and offer a versatile and low-cost solution for generating a quality surface finish.

OD PROFILE BURNISHING ADVANTAGES

LOW MICROINCH FINISH

  • Produces a 4 to 8 Ra surface finish in one pass.
  • Improves surface irregularities and tool marks.

PROCESS IMPROVEMENTS

  • Burnishing is a repeatable and consistent process
  • Fast cycle times – measured in seconds, not minutes!

VERSATILITY

  • Burnishing is effective for many different part configurations.
