Northwest Die Casting offers vibratory deburr which is a process that is unmatched for its low production cost per piece. Vibratory finishing is a type of mass finishing manufacturing process that can produce finishes in the 10 to 4 micro-inch range. Die casting parts can be optimally processed and prepared for plating. Vibratory finishing is used to deburr, remove flash, clean, burnish, brighten, and refine surfaces.
How Vibratory Deburring works?
Vibratory Deburring works by causing the specially shaped media and workpieces placed into the tub of the vibratory tumbler to rub together. This happens by vibrations, the media and workpieces vibe inside the tub or bowl in a circular motion. This circular motion is important so that the pieces are separate and avoids them from impinging on each other. The process can be either a wet or dry one depending on the application.
The media and compound determines the type of finishing operation. The operations performed on die castings are usually polishing or refining using plastic media with a mild alkaline compound. The benefits of this media is that its lightweight and soft which prevents the die casting parts from being scratched or gouged.
