Carbide Burrs Information and Uses

What is a carbide burr

Carbide burrs are tools used for deburring, cutting, shaping, grinding, and chamfering hard materials. Different cuts of carbide burrs will be best suited for certain materials.

Carbide burrs are used in air tools such as die grinders, pneumatic rotary tools and high-speed engravers, Micro Motors, Pendant Drills, Flexible Shafts, and hobby rotary tools such as a Dremel.

Carbide Burr information, sizes, and uses

Why use Carbide burrs over HHS(high-speed steel)?

Carbide has an Extremely high heat tolerance which allows them to operate at higher speeds than similar HSS cutters, yet still maintain their cutting edges. High-speed steel(HSS) burrs will start to soften at higher temperatures while carbide Maintains hardness even under compression and has Longer working life and is a better choice for long term performance due to higher wear resistance.

Single-Cut vs Double-Cut

Single cut Burrs are for General Purpose. It will give good material removal and smooth workpiece finishes.

Single cut is used with stainless steel, hardened steel, copper, cast iron, and ferrous metals and will remove material quickly with a smooth finish. Can be used for Deburring, cleaning, milling, material removal or creating long chips

Double cut Burrs allow for rapid stock removal in harder materials and tougher applications. The designs reduces pulling action, which allows better operator control, and reduces chips

Double cut burrs are used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, aluminium, soft steel and also for all non-metal materials such as stone, plastics, hardwood, and ceramic. This cut has more cutting edges and will remove material faster.

Double-cut will leave a smoother finish than single-cut due to producing smaller chips as they cut away the material. Use double-cut for medium-light stock removal, deburring, fine finishing, cleaning, smooth finishes, and creating smaller chips. Double cut carbide burrs are the most popular and work for most applications.
