Osborn announces new patents pending for its TufBrush lineup

October 22, 2018 - Osborn will present its expanded lineup of patent pending TufBrush™ wire brushes, which increase productivity and profitability by removing more material over a longer period, at FABTECH 2018 from Nov. 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

“FABTECH is North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event, so it’s the perfect opportunity for Osborn to announce that we have new patents pending on the design of our innovative TufBrush products. We engineered our carbon steel and stainless-steel brushes to make them aggressively remove more material but also last up to twice as long as competitors' brushes,” said Justin Sieb, product manager at Osborn.

Osborn improved its brush technology by staggering the wire knots. Osborn also re-engineered the brush design to dampen vibration. The TufBrush product line features Osborn’s proprietary TufWire™, a specially designed wire that offers increased rigidity and aggressiveness. TufBrush 4-, 5- and 6-inch brushes also feature a new knot design that allows for more wire on the work surface and an increased wire density that provides consistency and longer life.

“The patentable breakthrough is the staggered trim and its effect on long brush life and fast cutting” Sieb said. “Our TufBrush product line provides the most optimal cleaning and brushing operations. They’re now better than our previous versions.”

Welders and fabricators using TufBrush products can save as much as 37 percent compared to the cost of other stringer bead wire brushes, Sieb said.

“Longer-lasting TufBrush wire brushes save time and money because welders and fabricators will need to stop working to replace them less often,” Sieb said. “Shops also will need to stock fewer brushes, opening up space in the shop or truck for other tools. As a business, they will spend less time ordering replacement brushes or visiting the distributor, so they can focus on getting more work done.”

TufBrush stringer bead brushes are used for weld cleanup applications, including root and hot pass, surface preparation, deburring and pipe joining. The entire TufBrush product line excels at removing bead scale, slag, spatter and oxidation.

More than 30,000 people are expected to attend FABTECH 2018, which provides a convenient ‘one-stop shop’ venue to meet with world-class suppliers, see the latest industry products and developments, and find the tools to improve productivity, increase profits and discover new solutions to all metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing needs.

Osborn also will showcase its Advanced Technology Brushing (ATB) lineup of nylon filament abrasive tools for highly refined finishing processes, along with cutting and grinding discs, and many of its other surface treatment products.
