MACHINES FOR THE MASS FINISHING PROCESS
Mass finishing is a surface finishing process used mainly for metallic workpieces. When finishing bulk materials, the workpieces are placed inside a process drum together with a grinding or polishing medium and a normally aqueous mixture (compound). The oscillating or rotary motion of the drum creates relative motion between the workpiece and the process media. Heavy workpieces which can not be finished as bulk materials are processed in stream finishing or drag finishing machines.. In this machine type the workpieces are clamped in holders during finishing. With its well-equipped process development laboratory and state-of-the-art machines and technologies, OTEC has been delivering perfect results for mass finishing for nearly 20 years.
STREAM FINISHING UNITS
Workpieces are moved through a stream of grinding or polishing medium, i.e. both the workpieces and the process drum rotate. The SF offers very short finishing times and can easily be automated or integrated into a production line.
