A vibratory finishing process consists of placing parts, media and compounds into a vibratory tub or bowl. The vibratory action creates a force on the parts causing media and parts to turn and grind against each other deburring or polishing a mass of parts.
Not only for environmental reasons, process water recycling is the preferred waste water treatment method in mass finishing applications, but also because such recycling systems produce significant cost savings.
Drag finishing and plunge finishing are highly specialized mass finishing methods. Ideally suited for processing delicate, high value components, these processes provide precise, targeted surface finishes.
