Sometimes things change … including the starting condition of your parts. Worn tooling, changes in manufacturing methods or materials or investment in a new manufacturing machine can result in you no longer getting a result from your mass finishing machine like the one you have been used to and/or need. We would typically recommend a sample starting condition part is kept by the machine for reference each time parts are to be processed. Should the starting condition prove to be different often this can be accommodated in the mass finishing process itself (i.e. extended time, changes in machine speed, different media, etc…).
Should the change be dramatic though the mass finishing process will need to be re-evaluated. It may be that a different media, compound and/or setting will still get you there – and we’d be delighted to help make a recommendation for that using our process development service.
Similarly when using a high energy centrifugal disc machine it is vital that the parts are robust and not sensitive or sharp. Should you have different parts you wish to consider processing in your machine we’ll be happy to give you process advice.
