Xebec Ceramic Stones
Xebec ceramic stones are used for detailed finishing of detailed surfaces.
Ceramic Stones are a fine grit finishing stone made of a new composite material of ceramic fibres in a very hard thermoset resin. Xebec Ceramic Stones have a unique patented structure of ceramic fibres in a cross patterned bundle with fibres running in two directions. Only the ends of the stone do the work, they must be dressed and shaped for optimum work.
Stones can be shaped easily for the required use. They are excellent for getting into detailed tight areas.
These stones are available in a huge range of grits 120g which is very coarse for rapid stock removal or coarse spark surface to be removed to 3000 grit which is similar to 10 micron and used for polishing.
How To Use
- They can also be used for reciprocatory and ultrasonic finishing for a little more power in tight spaces.
- Ceramic stones can be used with a stone holder for hand stoning, select the stone holder that fits the stone.
- Used with a Ultrasonic polisher they can be used for very precise stock removal or polishing. Sharp edges on tools can easily be maintained.
Traditionally used in Mould tool and Die polishing to get in very tight spaces.
3d printed or laser sintered parts AM manufacturing. as smaller and more detailed components can be made and finishing is required these will become an important tool.
Microscopic polishing and cleaning can be achieved, as the grit in the ceramic fibres are so small they only need a very small stroke length to work. This is particularly helpful in the medical industry.
