BIAX will be presenting two new ergonomic pneumatic files with short stroke lengths at SIMTOS 2018. 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.
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.
