Drag Finishing – What Is It And Why Should You Consider Using it?

“When making a decision between various finishes for your product, seeing the actual finish on the metal is a valuable aid to your decision making and seeing a process in action is even better!”

In recent years, “drag finishing” has become a popular alternative for surface finishing of high value and somewhat delicate metal components.

“Drag finishing” is pulling the components through the media mass thus, honing and polishing in the process.

In a drag finishing system, the parts or components are mounted, fixed and equipped with multiple workstations.  Each component is then “dragged” through a circular work bowl filled with grinding or polishing media.

Perfect Surface Finishes For Parts Produced By Additive Manufacturing

3d-printing-sammlung-01-3D

Advanced composite and metal additive manufacturing components require final surface finishing.

Whenever the surface of aerospace, automotive, creative, dental, industrial tooling, medical and moulding tools are produced with additive manufacturing the surface requires to be improved.

Additive manufacturing, the creation of 3-D solid objects by using a series of layered materials, allows the production of complex individual components from various materials such as plastic, nickel alloys, titanium, stainless steel and precious metals.

It permits the creation of shapes and geometries which are not possible with any other production method. However, the surface finish of parts created with additive manufacturing frequently requires final finishing.

The adaptation to particular work piece shapes and surface requirements can be achieved by the development of tailor-made finishing solutions.

Equipment and process methods for either the intensive or very gentle surface smoothing of such components are available according to their component substrate and design geometry.
