Centrifugal Disc Finishing Tip 4. Regularly Check Your Seal Gap

 

The seal gap between the moving spinner and stationary tub (bowl) allows the process water, particles and any contaminants to be carried out of the bowl so the process can operate and perform to its optimum capability consistently.

Centrifugal Disc Finishing Tip 3. Check You Have The Right Amount Of Water And Compound In The Machine

 

Water and compound are added into the machine to facilitate the cutting process and remove any debris coming from the media, parts and any additives so the process stays clean, the media can keep cutting and doing its work as it should do and to protect the parts being processed (i.e. with a rust inhibitor if corrosive).

Centrifugal Disc Finishing Tip 2. Check That The Media Condition Is Good

Abrasive media (for deburring, radiusing, blending machining marks, etc…) needs to have an ‘open face’ to work as it should. This is where you can feel the abrasive particles when dragging your finger Medianail over the surface of the media (like a file). When media becomes ‘clogged’ due to insufficient levels of compound being added to the process bowl, poor draining, poor quality media, etc… it becomes smooth (and even shiny in extreme cases). Often times users can think this to be a benefit as ‘it lasts forever’. In truth though it just has stopped cutting and not only does it last forever, so do your process times! If your media is smooth and your finish or process times are adversely affected it is time to throw it away and refill the machine with new media.

As most media (ceramic and/or plastic) wear, the level in your machine can drop significantly over time. As mass finishing processes work by covering the part with the media and the media moving over the edges to create the deburring, radiusing, etc… it is important a ratio of media : parts is retained.
