Novoflex® is an extremely flexible tool that is used primarily for deburring and secondarily for honing. It is self-centering and can be used on hand-held machines as well as in CNC and NC machines, machining centers, and automatic machines. It can be clamped in tool spindles.
Regardless of the material grade of a component, Novoflex® produces a clean and controllable surface finish on edges and internal surfaces. The tool is extremely effective for deburring and rounding workpiece edges, in the infeed and outfeed of cylindrical bores, for internal intersections and grooves, as well as in bearing races.
You can create a plateau finish with Novoflex®. This so-called "cross-hatch pattern" is desirable in cylinder liners, for example. When the piston moves, the oil adheres better to the walls of the cylinder's inner surface due to the cross-grinding and thus ensures smooth and trouble-free running.
Novoflex® deburring and honing tools are used, for example, in the automotive and aerospace industries. Possible applications are e.g. the production or machining of
Novoflex® should always be used with an oversize compared to the bore of the workpiece. Therefore, always determine the bore diameter of the workpiece first. In our technical product tables for Novoflex®, we always indicate the bore diameter of the workpiece with "W" in the first column. This makes it very easy for you to find the right item for your application.
Osborn’s small diameter ATB™ Novoflex Tools are designed with round, abrasive beads fastened to the end of flexible nylon filaments sized to address smaller applications such as brake cylinders, hydraulics and valve guides. This self-centering tool will conform to the bore surface to provide a consistent, even surface finish over the life of the tool.
Designed with round, abrasive beads fastened to the end of flexible nylon filaments, Osborn ATB™ Novoflex flexible honing tools are ideal for a variety of bore cleaning tasks. Tools create crosshatch pattern for improved oil retention and increased efficiency, and will even provide an edge break not possible with conventional honing stones.
The longer brush length of Osborn’s heavy duty ATB™ Novoflex Tool tackles tough honing projects with efficiency. Silicon Carbide abrasive beads are fastened to durable nylon filaments to allow the tool to conform to the bore surface. Flexible filaments are engineered to provide the correct pressure to create an ideal hone over the life of the tool.
