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

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.
