Design Removes Weak Points in Bur’s Neck

Richard Gawel


Microcopy’s NeoBurr 3302 blended neck carbide follows suit with the 5572. The section of the bur between the cutting head and the shank is blended, so there is no reduction in neck width. Coupled with the removal of the weld joint, this design increases the strength of the bur, Microcopy reports. The 3302 boasts unrivaled strength, according to the company, and its design removes any weak points in the bur’s neck that might otherwise cause breakage. 

Most of the top-selling NeoBurr shapes are available in blended neck, and Microcopy plans to release additional blended-neck shapes as they are designed and developed. The new 3302 has all the same great features as the original NeoBurr 330 but now has a blended neck for increased durability, Microcopy says.
