We are machining a 6-inch, complex-shaped, 6061 aluminum part. We need to further improve the surface finish from the machined 32 Ra to 12 Ra, maintaining a uniform, pleasant finish. What finish system should we consider? Ask an ExpertPublished: 3/19/2013
We are spending too much on such things as deburring and cleaning of parts after machining or grinding. My assignment is to take a fresh look at our mass finishing operations and come up with a cost saving plan. Ask an ExpertPublished: 1/11/2011
A new manufacturing engineer with our firm suggested that we look into a vibratory/washing operation, perhaps even replacing the deburring machine.
