Porcelain Media for High Quality Burnished Surfaces in Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Processes

Porcelain Media for High Quality Burnished Surfaces in Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Processes

Porcelain polishing media is typically used to brighten and polish metal parts subsequent to abrasive smoothing operations. This media is nonabrasive in nature and performs work by compression rather than abrasion.

Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Media – Ceramic Preformed Shapes and Random Shapes

Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Media – Ceramic Preformed Shapes and Random Shapes

Ceramic media is the most commonly used media in mass finishing processes. This heavy material comes with a wide variety of shape and angle options that can increase or decrease its cutting ability. Ceramic media is commonly used for machined or cast parts that have rough tool marks, or rough surfaces. Ceramic media can quickly and effectively remove burs and grinding marks leaving you with a smooth part ready for the assembly line. Continue reading Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Media – Ceramic Preformed Shapes and Random Shapes

Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts?  Do you need to be doing that?  Are you sure?

Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts? Do you need to be doing that? Are you sure?

a great many parts are being hand-deburred currently because the conventional mass finishing method(s) being used in the shop are incapable of exerting sufficient abrasive media pressure against edges and surfaces to remove unwanted and undesirable projections, sharp edges and burrs.  In many cases, it is possible to minimize hand-deburring procedures by utilizing a higher energy method that makes use of centrifugal force to propel abrasive material and rub away at edges and surfaces with dramatically more strength.   Continue reading Are you still hand-deburring your machined parts? Do you need to be doing that? Are you sure?
