What is mass finishing?
Answer: Mass finishing is a separation process. The term refers to surface processing of mainly metallic workpieces, such as turned, milled and stamped parts Mass finishing does not always involve grinding. Depending on the process, it can also involve lapping or polishing. For this reason, it is also sometimes called barrel polishing.
What technology do your mass finishing machines use?
Answer: We specialise in two types of mass finishing machines: centrifugal disc technology and drag finishing.
Where is drag finishing used?
Answer: Drag finishing is ideal for sensitive and high-quality workpieces that must be smoothed or polished without contact.
What is stream finishing?
Answer: Stream finishing, or SF for short, is the technology behind a whole new generation of mass finishing machines. One of the main differences between SF and other technologies is that the processing forces are much higher. Compared to other surface processing methods, stream finishing can remove material faster and more precisely. The machine covers a wide range of processes, from deburring, smoothing and polishing to edge rounding on cutting tools. SF was specially developed for applications for which there was no adequate solution, and which often demand very high surface qualities to the tiniest detail. It enables very short processing times, and offers both simple automation and high process reliability.
What is deburring?
Answer: The term deburring comes from the metal processing industry. This process involves removing edges, chips and slivers from mostly metallic workpieces. There are several processes for removing burrs and edges, including brushing, filing, grinding, milling, mass finishing, drag finishing, and thermal or electro-chemical deburring.
