Vibratory finishing (tumbling)
If the technical-project specifications so require, once turning has been completed, before being ground the parts can be sent for heat treatment and surface finish by means of
• heat treatments (c/o our historical partners and extremely reliable), or
• vibratory finishing for tumbling (directly c/o our facility)
Surface finishing using a tumbler unit consists in using very fine body ceramic stones which are made to vibrate – inside specific machines called tumbling units – in contact with the surfaces of the mechanical pieces.
This rubbing is not at all aggressive and in fact is very delicate; it is however sufficient to bring the surface of the hydraulic and mechanical components up to super-finish roughness levels, able to fully satisfy even the most stringent project specifications.
