High-Energy Tumble Finish


High-energy tumbling is the process of using centrifugal force to polish parts en masse. Materials that can be finished using our state-of-the-art high-energy tumble finish machines include stainless steel, steel, aluminum & titanium. One of the major advantages of high-energy tumbling is the efficiency. Parts can be finished in a matter of minutes in many cases. When time is of the essence, high-energy tumbling is the route to take.

The high-energy tumble finish process involves placing parts that need finishing, media, water and a surfactant in a barrel. The barrel, which is sealed with a lid, is then rotated on a carousel holding four barrels. While the carousel spins one way, the barrels go the other direction. This creates a powerful centrifugal force that finishes the parts to the desired level.

At RP Abrasives, we use 6 high-energy tumblers. The one pictured here has a capacity of 160 liters. We also have three 120 liter machines, one 80 liter machine and one 12 liter machine. The machine that gets used depends on the number of parts to be processed and their size. We prefer Mass Finishing Inc. tumbling machines because we find them to be the most reliable and durable. We also finish products using vibratory tumbling.
