unique Churchill designed finger buff is a very effective
finishing tool for the automotive, cutlery, and cookware industries.
TYPE 544-RD buffs are used for
heavy duty buffing operations involving steel and aluminum
parts. Although the Type 544-RD was developed for heavy buffing,
the unique finger construction (overlapping fingers) allows
a great deal of flexibility for curved or flat surfaces.
The fingers are constructed of sisal twine wound in cloth
sheeting, with various rows of sewing available for each finger.
TYPE 240 buffs are an all-cloth
variation of the Type 544-RD, with many of the positive features
of the Type 544-RD. The all-cloth construction enables these
buffs to be very flexible and work extremely well in cut and
color operations as well as in pure color operations. The
specific finishing application dictates the type of cloth
used in the buff and the number of rows of sewing in each
finger. The most common construction is a Type 243, which
denotes three rows of sewing per finger.
TYPE CO buffs are constructed
with alternating fingers of cord sisal and cloth. These fingers
combine the fast cutting action of sisal with the color and
compound retention qualities of cloth. Each cloth finger acts
as a compound reservoir for the hard working sisal fingers.
The overlapping fingers act as a fan, circulating air through
the buff and the part, reducing heat and providing longer
TYPE 300 buffs were among the
first Churchill products developed, and have enjoyed high
popularity since their introduction. Type 300 buffs are made
of unsewn folded cloth fingers designed to flare out at the
point of contact with the work piece.
These products are excellent for buffing sloped and curved
parts. The finger action is unique in that only the finger
in contact with the part is deflected, allowing the next finger
to provide maximum cut. Type 300 buffs are also available
with various rows of sewing per finger.
Churchill finger buffs are available in 8 to 18
diameters with various cloth materials. All Churchill buffs
can be dip treated to alter the buffs flexibility and
firmness, and are available with various arbor holes.
