Centrifugal Disk & Bowls
Centrifugal part finishing offers a higher energy deburring and polishing process that allows you to mass finish your parts in a shorter time than when using a standard vibratory bowl.
In Centrifugal Barrel Finishing (CBF), operators place parts and media into a closed barrel attached to a processing turret. As the turret rotates at high speed, the barrels counter-spin against the turret's rotation. This action delivers the centrifugal force.
In Centrifugal Disc Finishing (CDF), a round rotating disc is at the bottom of a round stationary chamber. When the machine is energized the disc's rotation forces the entire mass to rise quickly upward and outward. The walls of the upper processing chamber slow the mass, effectively "braking" it, turning it over upon itself to tumble down and inward, back to the disc to begin again. The mix takes the shape of a vortex of parts, water and media. The centrifugal force developed by the disc adds weight to the parts and media. The result is a highly aggressive parts-finishing energy.
Deburring is the removal of burrs on a part by processes such as blasting, mass finishing, tumbling, vibratory tumbling, or grinding.
