High-Quality Finishing

Our surface finishing technology guarantees superior surface quality and dimensional precision for your high value metal components.

Reduce Vibration and Noise

Superfinishing reduces surface roughness, which reduces friction, vibration, noise levels, leading to smoother operation.

Extend Component Life

Benefits from isotropic super-finishing increase the part durability by 300% or more, thereby increasing its quality and value.


Super-Finishing Process

This process is radically different from conventional machining. The following is a brief overview of the chemically accelerated vibratory finishing process using high density, non-abrasive ceramic media.

How it Works

Stage 1.

The process is carried out in specially designed vibratory finishing bowls and or tub/trough machines. These durable machines have been around for more than 60 years. Vibratory machines are available in sizes from 25 L to 1000 L working capacity. This means gears and other components can be finished ranging in size from less than six mm in diameter to more than two metres in diameter and quantities from one to hundreds at a time.

Stage 2.

The process utilises high density, non- abrasive ceramic media in the vibratory finishing machine. It is considered non-abrasive since it does not contain discrete abrasive particles and alone is unable to abrade material from the hardened surface of the components being processed. The media is selected from a range of shapes and sizes best suited for maintaining the geometry of the parts. The selection of the correct media is a critical part of the process.

Stage 3.

A reactive chemistry is used in the vibratory machine in conjunction with the media. When introduced to the vibratory machine this chemistry produces a stable, soft conversion coating across the asperities (peaks and valleys) of the components. The rubbing motion across the components developed by the machine and media effectively wipes soft conversion coating off the ‘peaks’ of the parts surfaces, thereby removing a micro-layer of metal. After this continual process is complete, the conversion coating is wiped off one final time using a neutral soap to produce a mirror like surface.

What is

Ceramic Wheel Polishing?

Ceramic polishing is a two-three stage process carried out in specialised vibratory finishing equipment. It involves abrasive plastic cutting medias that prep the surface for the polishing phase using ceramic porcelain. In the polishing phase ceramic pellets reach into every cavity where hands cannot reach, ensuring a highly reflective mirror polish on all areas of the wheel.

How it Works

Stage 1.

Wheel finishing is carried out in specialized vibratory finishing equipment with the use of different plastic media abrasives. Each stage removes material from the surface until an optimum smooth, highly reflective mirror surface is achieved. A fast cutting plastic abrasive is used in the initial stage to remove most of the rough surface as possible. The main objective of this stage is to remove all machining lines and imperfections.

Stage 2.

The second stage of the ceramic wheel polishing process requires the use of a finer cutting plastic abrasive to prep the surface for it’s final polishing stage. This particular media is formulated to create a ultra smooth, almost reflective finish.

Stage 3.

The final stage of the process involves altering the machine parameters and using a selection of non-abrasive porcelain polishing spheres which produce a highly reflective mirror finish.
