Vibratory/ TuMBLE Deburring OR POLISHING

When deburring and finishing large quantities of parts, vibratory or tumble finishing offers efficient, high-quality results. We handle a wide range of part sizes.

 

Where Precision Finishing Begins and Ends

Depending on the media used during the process, we can achieve your specified finish and deburring requirements. The efficient process is ideal for numerous applications across various industries.

Common Applications of Vibratory Tumble Deburring and Polishing

  • Removing burrs
  • Creating radius edges for safe handling
  • Preparing parts for plating or other finishing
  • Texturing parts for adhesion qualities
  • Polishing, including ball burnishing for appearance

FAQs

Vibratory deburring is a faster process for softer materials. Barrel tumbling is a longer, more aggressive process that will provide better radiusing on hard materials.

The choice of media is dependent on several factors, including the part material and the desired finish. Common media include: steel media, ceramic balls, plastic, organic media, and wet tumbling compounds.
