Machinery and media are nothing in the mass finishing world without the right compound.
A manufactured object can be designed to specifications, but if it doesn’t look and feel finished, it may be rejected. A metal alloy can be structurally perfect, but surface corrosion may make it less presentable. Process water may work well for initial cycles before contaminants wear down its effectiveness over time.
The right compound for a given mass finishing process can solve each of these problems and more.

Tip #3 – Optimum operating conditions
Once a mass finishing process has been established by the selection of machine, media and compound, the system must be constantly monitored and, of course, properly maintained. The good news is, this is quite easy! By following a few simple quality control rules, the process will remain absolutely stable, producing the desired finishing results for many years:

Tip #2 – The need for processing trials
Of course, the selection of the right machine, media and compound can sometimes be a bit intimidating. Not only does a mass finishing user have to choose among a wide variety of machine types and sizes, they must also pick the right media from hundreds of media types, shapes and sizes. And on top of all this Read more about processing trials
Tip #1 – The work pieces are always at the center
The development of any surface finishing solution always revolves around the work pieces. Their material, size, shape and above all, the finishing objectives, determine what type of finishing process must be selected.
The work piece size is especially important. For example, the deburring and edge

Whether it be a process for polishing, surface cut down, grinding, deburring, cosmetic finishing, or just cleaning, an appropriate media is available. Choosing the media can seem daunting at first, with over 1700 various media and compounds available. Therefore, sample trials are of significant importance. Here are three considerations to think about when choosing the right media: Read more about media purchasing considerations
“No Contaminants < 30 µm” – A Demand Perfectly Met
Vibratory finishing with subsequent part washing represents a process combination that meets ever-increasing cleanliness specifications. By matching the right equipment these requirements can be easily fulfilled in linked, fully automatic processes as well as in stand-alone systems.
