Our centrifugal barrel finishing and centrifugal barrel tumbling services include a complete array of capabilities from aggressive deburring and surface improvement to intricate finishing of delicate small metal parts. This enables our high-energy metal tumbling process to meet a wide array of industrial applications, ranging from jet engine components in the aerospace industry to intricate medical instrumentation for minimally invasive surgical applications.
Systems with Power and Control
With variable rotation speeds from slow to rapid, and capable of generating gentle to extreme G forces, our centrifugal barrel finishing and barrel tumbling systems move media across the parts, abrading the surfaces and removing tiny amounts of material with every rotation. Yet, the centrifugal force eliminates part-on-part impingement that other systems are prone to creating. Additionally, the gravitational force and controlled energy exerted by our process results in a greatly reduced cycle time in comparison with many other mass finishing methods.
Utilizing our advanced yet cost-effective equipment, we are able to tailor our process to meet customer requirements. Our versatile, heavy-duty centrifugal barrel systems offer a choice of barrel sizes and feature digital controls that enable us to configure the machines to accommodate various part sizes; inverter-duty motors and variable speed drives allow us to select the speed that is best for achieving the specified results. Dividable barrels enable us to easily separate parts for increased productivity. Using either a wet or dry process, our systems can also completely automate the finishing process, to eliminate the need for manual handling.
In addition, our systems are designed for heavy use and repeated finishing cycles. With all-stainless steel frames, drums, components, and cladding for durability and resistance to corrosive chemicals, our machines enable easy cleanup and maintenance, allowing us to offer fast turnaround for high-volume operations.
Centrifugal Barrel Finishing
Fast and economical for polishing, deburring, and deflashing, our centrifugal barrel finishing systems can clean and polish metal parts uniformly and evenly, to a level not achievable by hand and in a fracture of the time required for manual finishing. Variable speed controls allow our machines to achieve finishes ranging from simple polishing at low speed to full-scale deburring and edge radiusing. As speed increases, even the smallest imperfections can be removed.
Centrifugal Barrel Tumbling
Our centrifugal barrel tumbling systems can finish parts radically faster than barrel finishing systems, to greatly speed the metal tumbling process. Reducing tiny irregularities and producing a clean, smooth surface without additional cutting, our centrifugal machines also offer the flexibility to choose either a wet or dry process, depending on your materials and your surface finish goals.
