Vibratory Finishing: Explained
So what is vibratory finishing? Put simply, the process is a type of metal finishing technique used to remove sharp edges and rough surfaces from manufactured metal components. The process takes place by placing the components, abrasive media, and compounds into a vibratory tub or bowl. Once the vibratory machine begins to operate, the container turns and vibrates, this vibratory action creates a force which causes the media to rub and grind against the components. Depending on the size and volume of the components, a vibratory finishing cycle can take from fifteen minutes to as long as five hours.
What Can Vibratory Finishing Achieve?
As a result of the vibrations and contact between the media and the compounds, vibratory finishing can achieve a wide range mass finishing applications such as:
- Edge Breaking
- Surface Preparation
When executed by a professional vibratory finishing company, this metal finishing process can provide a wide range of valuable benefits. Due to the fact that you can submit large volumes of components at the same time, vibratory finishing is an incredibly cost-effective process which requires a minimal amount of labour. The process can achieve an incredibly smooth surface finish without causing extensive wear; as result, increasing the durability of the components which undertake vibratory finishing. The process is also very controllable, which means that you can always create a uniform finishing result.
