Steel wire brushes are essential finishing tools in most metal fabrication shops. Fabricators can take five actions to help improve the performance and life span of these brushes: use the highest safe speed, periodically reverse direction; know when to use crimped or knot wire brushes; keep stainless steel brushes clean; and purchase heat-treated, oil-tempered steel wire.
The OPTIPLEX NEXUS 3015 CO2 laser-cutting system is simply innovative. It combines high performance with a compact and flexible design, ideal for fabrication job shops looking to expand into laser-cutting services.
