Carbon Steel Tumbling

Carbon Steel TumblingIf you’re looking for superior carbon steel tumbling services, look no further than RP Abrasives. Carbon steel tumbling is a process that involves polishing rough metal parts en mass to achieve the desired effect. Carbon steel can be tumble finished using a variety of methods and can take minutes or hours, depending on the batch size and requirements.

At RP Abrasives, we specialize high-energy and vibratory tumble finishing techniques. High-energy tumbling is done by putting carbon steel parts, water and a surfactant into a tightly closed-lid barrel. The barrel is spun in a way that creates a powerful centrifugal force that efficiently finishes the metal parts. We have four high-energy tumblers ranging from 20 to 120 liters.

Vibratory tumbling utilizes friction to smooth the carbon steel objects. Media vibrate against the steel parts to reach the desired level.

We Can Tumble Finish an Array of Carbon Steels:

  • 4xxx Series (41xx, 43xx, 46xx, 47xx, 48xx)
  • 8xxx Series (81xx, 86xx)
