Minimizing Hand Deburring for Screw Machine and Small Precision Machined Parts – Case Study

FINISHING APPLICATION PROFILE: Heather Lindsley, the Quality Assurance manager of Space Screw, Inc. in Rathdrum, Idaho demonstrates a Model HZ-120 Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing machine used by the company to replace hand deburring on their precision screw machine parts and turnings used in the aerospace industry.  Company officials estimate that the process has reduced their hand-deburring burden by 70-80 percent.  The process replaced the barrel… Continue reading Minimizing Hand Deburring for Screw Machine and Small Precision Machined Parts – Case Study

Turbo-Finish for Lean Deburring and Finishing of Complex Rotating Parts

Turbo-Finish for Lean Deburring and Finishing of Complex Rotating Parts

TECHNOLOGY EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.  This technology is currently used in the United States to deburr and contour the edges of complex parts, and to create isotropic surface finishes essential in finishing many complex parts.  Unlike single-point-of-contact

Dr. Michael Massarsky, inventor of Turbo-Finish
machining technologies the technology is relatively simple to control once process parameters for a given part have been developed, and thus enjoys the attributes of reliability and repeatability of simpler mechanical (vs. digital feedback) technologies. However, It accomplishes uniform results on very complex parts that often cannot be achieved reliably by other much more complex, processes.
