Sweco Finishing Mills Provide 3D Motion
Vibro-energy finishing mills have compressive scrubbing action that cleans, deburrs, rounds sharp corners and smooths out surface impressions.
Sweco will showcase its Vibro-Energy finishing mills, which are round-bowl vibratory finishing machines driven by a direct-drive motor that the company says uses less energy per cubic foot of capacity and are less prone to drive failures. According to the company, the vibratory motion subjects parts and media to a consistent, high-frequency tilting movement as they travel in a helical/orbital path around the chamber. The resulting compressive scrubbing action cleans and also removes burrs, rounds sharp corners and smooths out surface impressions.
The correct peripheral speed is an important consideration in getting the right results from your buffing operation. A buff that is turning too fast or too slow may result in damage to the buff or to the workpiece.
Advances in equipment, automation and consumables can help you compete.
