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.

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?

Hands-Free, High-Speed Small Part Finishing with Centrifugal Iso-Finishing Technology

Hands-Free, High-Speed Small Part Finishing with Centrifugal Iso-Finishing Technology

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.
