The comprehensive metal finishing services available from Master Finish Company includes vibratory finishing. Vibratory finishing is a process in which smaller parts or components are placed in a tub or bin with burnishing media, which can include ceramics, plastics, granite, steel balls, or organic media such as ground walnut shells or corn cobs. An asymmetrically weighted motor then creates vibration to achieve the desired results as components and media scrub together.
Master Finish has several mass media machines to perform burnishing, deburring, or other surface treatments like heat treatment scale removal. We offer these services as a standalone finish, but most of the machine time is used in pre-plating service to prepare the parts with a clean and smooth surface to improve the quality of parts coming off the plating lines at Master Finish!
Specific objectives can be achieved by varying the severity and pace of the vibration, and the nature and amount of the media used. Vibratory finishing is often used to create improved surface quality prior to plating.
