Burnishing Tools – Rub or Burnish Parts that are Plated or Coated to Expose and Polish the Metal Underneath

Create Shallow Marks on Hardened Steel, and Cast Steel Parts with Burnishing Tools

Burnishing Tools – Polish and Burnish Plated Metals

Burnishing Tools have a faceted style tip, and are typically used for shallow marks (up to .007″ deep). As they are not technically a cutting tool, they are used for applications that require shallower marks. They can be used for many different marking and engraving applications on a wide range of materials.

  • Use for rotary marking and engraving.
  • Rub, or burnish plated and non-plated surfaces.
  • Remove plating or coating to expose and polish the metal underneath (for materials such as Black Oxide coated parts, hard Anodized Aluminum or soft Anodized Aluminum parts).
  • Ideal for marking hard materials such as hardened Steel when deep engraving is not required.
  • Mark Cast Steel parts or burnish through Scale to produce a clear and shallow engraved line.
  • Burnishing Tools are an excellent option to use instead of a Diamond Tool on plated parts since the larger tip style creates wider lines which remove more material.
  • Solid Carbide – premium, ultra-fine nano grade carbide for maximum tool strength.
  • Manufactured in house.
