HZ High Energy Series
Isotropic finishing through centrifugal force and the tumbling of parts and media. HZ High Energy series Centrifugal Barrel Finishing (CBF) systems are the fastest and most economical form of finishing machine available. They are the industry workhorse in polishing, deburring and deflashing parts. Continue reading Right Sizing your Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Equipment
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. Continue reading Porcelain Media for High Quality Burnished Surfaces in Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing Processes
Treated Soft Polishing Granules
Treated dry process polishing media is blended with various additives and can achieve a high luster finish on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Our three different formulations are available in the four grades listed in the plain soft media section above, and inclu Continue reading Dry Process Polishing Media for Cenrifugal Isotropic Finish Processing

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
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?
