Mass Finishing Media, Part 1 – Don’t Navigate the Complex Selection Process Alone

The importance of the media selection in any surface finishing process cannot be emphasized enough. These consumables are essential “precision tools” for achieving the specified finishing results.

Selecting the right media is a complex task. That’s why you should consult an expert such as Rosler for guidance.

Even after a mass finishing process has been established, the media status must be constantly monitored and, if necessary, corrected. When different work pieces are processed or finishing tasks are altered, exchanging the currently used media type with another may be required.

Careful and collaborative media selection is crucial to a mass finishing success.
