Vibratory finishing provides a fast, consistent and economical way to finish large quanitities of parts with minimal labor. Using the proper machine settings, chemical compounds, media, and time cycles, it is possible to obtain a uniform finish, load after load. Equipment designs include simple manual systems and highly automated, PC-operated, multi-machine processes. Machines are available in batch or continuous through-feed designs and are built in rectangular tub, round bowl, and oval configurations. In some applications, high energy systems like centrifugal disc and centrifugal barrel systems can drastically reduce time cycles.
