BIAX will be presenting two new ergonomic pneumatic files with short stroke lengths at CCMT. The machines produce minimal vibration of less than 1.0 m/s2, allowing them to be used intently over a long period of time without risk to health. The files weigh just 260 grams and have a compact design that makes them easy to hold and use, yet they are surprisingly powerful. Wrist stress is minimised through the particularly flexible design of the exhaust hose. The noise level is comfortably low, at 65 dB (A). Both machines are started using a slide valve.
The FLV 1-20 is designed for fine polishing in mould making. With 20,000 strokes per minute and a very short stroke length of 0.7 mm, it provides a high level of control in surface machining. This reduces the likelihood of the mould being damaged. The machine is also suitable for delicate deburring work.
The FLV 4-9, in contrast, is a convenient deburring file for small components that need to be held in the hand during deburring. It delivers 9,000 strokes per minute with a stroke length of 4 mm, providing a better result than a grinder, for example, when only small amounts of material need to be removed.
