ATB® is the abbreviation for Advanced Technology Brush System and forms our product range of brushes for automated deburring directly after the machining process.
ATB® brushes are precision tools that are largely responsible for the quality of the end products. They can be matched component-oriented to almost any material to be processed.
Our ATB® brushes are available with a wide range of abrasive bristles and wire trim in different grit sizes and filament/wire diameters.
ATB® brushes are designed for direct adaptation to tool holders, which means that they can be used in machining centres, CNC lathes & milling machines, robot cells, etc.
The brushes are used downstream of the machining process and can be used with cooling lubricants, emulsions or water without any problems.
This means that the machined workpieces can be deburred and finished directly, reliably and reproducibly on the machine without reclamping.
Before machining - clear burr formation on the edge. Milling grooves on the surface.
After machining - burrs were reliably removed and the edges rounded. The surface has an even, brushed look.
ATB® brushes have a 4 x higher fill density than the disc brushes produced in the conventional process (punched). As a result, the service life of the brushes is increased many times over, with higher throughput speeds and better and more efficient deburring results.
Due to shorter machining times and very uniform edge rounding, our ATB® brushes are particularly suitable for deburring:
ATB® brushes are compatible with the following tool holders for direct adaptability for use in automated machining stations:
In order to achieve the best possible deburring and finishing results, different fill patterns and designs are required. Depending on the available product families of ATB® brushes, we offer the following fill types, among others:
ATB® disc brush
ATB® wheel brush
ATB® End Brush
Determined by the material to be processed and the workpiece geometry, ATB® brushes can be equipped with various fill materials, from wire fill to abrasive bristles to mixed fill.
In order to make the best possible use of the advantages of our ATB® product line, it is often necessary to exchange ideas with our product professionals. Often, application-specific brushing tools are worked out for the customer, which is developed taking into account the entire machining process.
We offer the following standard configurations (dimensions) for the three ATB® product families:
ATB® Disc brush
ATB® Wheel Brush
ATB® End Brush
For direct mounting on shell mill holders without need of further clamping set / system.
For deburring sealing and contact surfaces. The application should take place on stationary machines. Use with cooling lubricant, water, oil is recommended.
Can be used for deburring components made of the most diverse of materials, such as steel, aluminium and cast iron.
Brushes for use on continuous deburring systems with planetary heads.
Clamping fixtures with shank-Ø 12 mm and clamping surface DIN 6535-HB. Compatible with ATB® disc brushes including a hexagonal mounting bore.
HSK – A63, to DIN 69893
ATB® wheel brush with longitudinal groove for direct clamping on tool holders (e.g. HSK, SK, BT) as cutter head holders and combi milling arbor holders. Please ask our application technicians for open requests and general questions about the ATB® products.
