Super-Finishing High Performance Automotive Components [Connecting Rods] with Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing

In a matter of minutes this deburr tool can clean up metal, acrylic or rubber parts are finished in what could take hours or even days by hand. The finish achieved by these machines is isotropic, meaning parts are polished uniformly and evenly, something that cannot be achieved by hand. Variable speed control allows these tumbling machines to achieve whatever finish the operator desires, from a simple polish at low speed, to full scale deburring and edge radiusing.

What is Centrifugal Finishing?

     In a matter of minutes this deburr tool can clean up metal, acrylic or rubber parts are finished in what could take hours or even days by hand. The finish achieved by these machines is isotropic, meaning parts are polished uniformly and evenly, something that cannot be achieved by hand. Variable speed control allow these tumbling machines to achieve whatever finish the operator desires, from a simple polish at low speed, to full scale deburring and edge radiusing.
Each tumbling machine contains four barrels that are mounted to a drum. The operator fills the barrel with media, parts and water, roughly 50-90% full. During operation the entire drum of the debur tool rotates like a…
