Part 2 – Aerospace Applications for Vibratory Finishing

Vibratory tub finishing is a great alternative to manual surface finishing for the aerospace industry.

From engine components and wings to landing gear, properly designed vibratory tubs can accommodate unwieldy work pieces, reduce production times and back logs, and produce a more consistent finish than manual finishing processes.

Our last blog post provided an overview of vibratory finishing’s role in the aerospace industry.

We now turn to specific applications and machine reports to demonstrate Rosler Metal Finishing’s vibratory finishing offerings and capabilities.

What We Offer

Vibratory tub finishing machines from Rosler can be customized to meet your unique aerospace finishing challenges.

Part 1 – Vibratory Finishing Replaces Manual Finishing in Aerospace Industry

The aerospace industry  demands precision and high quality. The processes used to finish aerospace work pieces should adhere to the same rigorous demands.

Gone are the days when the surface of large structural aircraft components is frequently finished by hand. Thanks to the development of large, powerful vibratory tubs, costly manual deburring and grinding of large aircraft components can now be eliminated by highly controlled mass l finishing systems.

Finding A Better Way

Manual deburring and grinding are tedious and costly. Attempting these types of mass finishing by hand usually causes large quality fluctuations with relatively high scrap rates. Above all, manual processes demand highly skilled labor, which is especially hard to find in today’s economy and tight labor markets.

The lack of skilled labor and manual inefficiencies can lead to severe bottle necks in production and long lead times.
