and deburring and manual polishing are the bane of many machine shop’s and machining department’s existence. What can be done to minimize the need for these tedious, time-consuming, labor-intensive production bottle-necks? In many cases the need for hand-deburring operations can be reduced greatly with high-energy and high-intensity isotropic finishing operations. See below several examples below where laborious deburring procedures have been reduced or eliminated. Continue reading What can Hands-Free Isotropic Deburring and Micro-Finishing do for your parts? See the Before and After Examples
High-energy centrifugal finishing methods were originally developed for ultra-smoothing and fine finishing of smaller precision parts. The high energy momentum of abrasive and polishing materials within these systems permitted the use of smaller dimensioned media that could access fine features and intricate geometries of some smaller parts. In these types of operations, several different cycles using successively finer abrasive materials are used to produce very fine finishes, in some cases as low as one micro-inch Ra. This type of finishing is used for both decorative/cosmetic effects and for producing functional finishes to improve performance and service life of parts in a wide variety of demanding industrial applications.

Whether the parts are laser cut, water-jet cut or stamped, some degree of edge finishing is usually required. Parts may require simple burr removal to allow them to enter the next phase of production. Other parts may require complete polishing to meet end-user or consumer aesthetic criteria.
High energy finishing methods can help manufacturers and contract manufacturers to find the proper balance between cost effective production and secondary processing to deliver the quality parts customers and end-users require. We have the equipment and expertise needed to ensure seamless delivery of high quality finished parts.
