  • Increasing Vibratory Efficiency by Optimizing the Choice of Media Shape Relative to Part Geometry

    When choosing vibratory media, understand the size, shape, starting roughness condition and metallurgical structure of the part.

  • Drag Finishing of Delicate Parts

    For complex parts with high surface finish specs, production deburring and surface prep can be done using the drag finishing process whereby the parts to be deburred and finished are mechanically dragged through the media while attached to fixtures—thus preventing the parts from contacting one another.

  • In Mechanical Finishing, All That Glistens Is … Or Is It?

    Surface finish types for commercially supplied stainless steel sheet are detailed in various standards. ASTM A480-12 and EN10088-2 are two; BS 1449-2 (1983) is still available, although no longer active. These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel.
