In sheet metal processing, the slag removal step is of essential importance. Slag is an undesirable by-product of plasma and oxy-fuel cutting. With the slag hammer brushes from boeck, you can remove even the most stubborn slag from your workpieces.


During plasma or gas cutting, strong melting often occurs, with the molten metal sagging on the beam-exit side. This so-called slag or dross occurs both on the inner and outer contours of the workpiece and must be removed for effective and economical further processing.

Common manual methods for slag removal include chipping it away using a hammer and chisel, or grinding using an angle grinder. However, this is labor intensive and leads to longer overall processing times. 

In terms of mechanical processes, slag can be removed by grinding with a soft contact roller. An even faster and easier industrial method is knocking it off using a deslagging brush made up of multiple flexibly mounted steel pins.

Deslagging brushes

Use the boeck slag hammer brushes for effective removal of unwanted slag residues. They are available for all common deburring machine types, whether angle grinders/polishers or automatic machines.

Depending on the material and toughness of the slag, it can be useful to switch between different degrees of pin hardness. There are four variants to choose from in a wide range of diameters.
