Applications of carbide burr and the future of cutting tools

Carbide burrs are used for the rapid removal of excess material. Ironically, burrs are both known as excess stock chips and the actual "tool" burr carbide used to remove roughness after the machining process. The carbide burrs can be used in the removal of uneven edges. Also, carbide burrs are an additional type of tool that is used on coated abrasives before the finishing or polishing. 

Carbide burrs

Carbide burrs are applied on a wide range of materials such as aluminum, steel and cast iron. The burrs vary in their shapes and sizes. They could be oval, cylindrical or round with varying diameters.

Carrying is another method in which the carbide bur can be applied. Carrying the cylinder head can be said to an improvement process to achieve quality and quantity of the gas flow by modifying the intake of the gas and the exhaust ports of an internal combustion engine.

The head movement gives the discrete and detailed attention that is required to improve the engine efficiency to its optimum. Theoretically, abrasive polishing affects fuel flow and ultimately, the transfer process is responsible for the high-power output of modern engines.

Notwithstanding, one other common use and application of the carbide burr is in the creation of art works such as sculptures. They provide grinding as well as vibration-free cutting actions. The handle is made of high tensile strength stainless steel. 

Carbide burrs are designed to cut a wide range of materials including stones of all types, wood, steel, aluminum, brass, and bronze.


The increasing completion in the global manufacturing market has led to an increased demand for more durable and better tools as well as accessories.

Extensive development of harder cutting materials and coatings has been the driving force for change in this industry, along with improved design of the high performance cutting tool. Greater emphasis on quality control is affecting the measurement device segment through the demand for electronic meters that link to statistical process control software packages. 

Also, the accessories segment have also been affected by the modular tooling designs.

A recession in the machine tool industry does not imply any recession in the cutting tool industry. Overall, the sales of cutting tool sales are seen as an economic indicator of the nation's manufacturing productivity level. The difference is mainly capital expenditure. A company may decide to buy a used machine tool over a new one in times of recession. However, if a company is cutting metal, the cutting tools wear or tear and must be changed or sharpened with new cutting tools. Therefore, the productivity of a metal cutting company is generally directly related to the purchasing levels of machine tools. However, more durable cutting tools are manufactured with special coatings that extend tool life, sometimes as much as four times the normal wear life. With the improvement of the materials for cutting tools and geometry, the volume of sales of machine tools will inevitably fall, because the tools are designed to reduce the frequency of replacement (cutting tools, metal machine).
