Mass finishing can economically enhance the utility, attractiveness, and value of the metal, plastic, ceramic or other parts manufactured for industrial or consumer use.  Mass finishing processes improve surface properties, upgrade product quality, and enhance the image of the manufacturing industry.  Edge, corner, surface finishing, including the removal of burrs, defects, and sharp edges improves part appearance and handling safety, and prepares surfaces for subsequent coating. Other benefits include easier assembly, improved operating performance, increased strength (in part by the elimination of surface stress concentrations), and longer product life. By imparting compressive stresses to the surfaces, fatigue strength can be improved.
