Bonded Burnishing™ tools do not erode during work, meaning that the tool’s preformed shapes remain useful far longer than those made of abrasives, resulting in savings in tool costs and downtime. As a result, tools can be manufactured with shapes for general use, or shaped for specific assembly line processes. The profiles of the contoured wheel in the following video is but one example. The profiled tools can also be engineered for use with abrasives, including preformed abrasive-coated shells.
