Looking for an efficient way to clean, deburr and/or polish a large volume of parts? Finishing Systems offers an assortment of mass vibratory finishing equipment. By means of either a bowl-shaped or tub type vibratory chamber one can effectively clean, deburr or polish a large number of parts at one time.

The mass finishing process entails the use of friction through vibration to rub the media against the parts to produce the desired result. The process can be either wet or dry, depending on the application. Typically the operation employs the use of vibratory finishing compound or agent to facilitate, lubricate, clean and enhance this process.


An Advanced Design

Vibratory equipment can also be fitted with an internal parts separation apparatus insuring 100% part unloading. With this design your parts are efficiently separated from the finishing media by means of a ramp located underneath the media; During the processing cycle, and when engaged (either manually or pneumatically) the ramp pivots upward lifting both the abrasive media and parts to a separation screen deck. During this operation the media then falls back through the openings of the screen separator and the parts automatically discharge from the machine making this option an attractive and labor-saving feature.
