Carbide rotary burs are used for cutting, shaping, and grinding materials in a process called deburring. They are versatile tools and can be used on many different materials including carbon and stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, non-ferrous metals, and plastics. They are often used in hand tools and milling machines depending on the application. RedLine Tools offers a wide range of styles of carbide burs for any application. All RedLine Tools are Proudly made in the USA.Advantages of Carbide Burs over HSS.
Burs are separated into two cut types; single cut and double cut.
Single Cut – These burs have a single, right-handed flute. They are used on harder metals like stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, cast iron and will remove material quickly.
Double Cut – sometimes referred to as Diamond Cut or Cross Cut, have two flutes that cross each other. They produce smaller chips than single cut and leave a smooth finish suitable for medium to light material removal for softer materials like aluminum and plastics. Applications include deburring, fine finishing, and cleaning.
Aluminum Application - Designed for optimal cutting of aluminum. Provides fast cutting without chip loading.
