Mass Finishing Review: Burnishing

Burnishing is perhaps the most popular mass-finishing application, but there are several benefits which make it a “go to” operation.

Vibratory Media Compositions vs. Attrition and Density

Media content is based on the gear finish desired. High abrasive/low ceramic media leads to higher attrition rate; low abrasive/more ceramic causes less attrition, higher quality ra surface value.

Plate Less, Burnish More

As everyone is well aware, the prices for various metals integral to plating have been unstable: at times rising, then again lowering in price.

The Challenges of Generic Deburring vs. CAVF Deburring

Relative to gear hobbing, shaving, and/or post heat-treat grinding to generate accurate tooth morphology, there may come a time wherein vibratory deburring is a requirement to remove adherent burrs.
