How It Works
Centrifugal barrel finishing machines operate on the “Ferris Wheel” principle with a one-to-one ratio of barrel rotation to turret rotation. Each of the four barrels is loaded to roughly 50-80% full of media, parts, water, and compound. During operation, rotation of the turret creates a sliding force inside the barrel. This motion causes parts and media to contact each other in random or isotropic directions. The resulting finish is consistent across the entire surface of the part. MFI provides complete sample processing and stocks all required media and supplies.
Available Options and Accessories
Parts and Media Separator
Make the media and part separation process simple with our free standing media separator. Dump full barrels on the vibratory screen and watch as the media and your parts separate.
Processing Table and Tank
Reduce the mess from the process with MFI’s processing table and sludge tank. Sediment from your tumbling process is collected and easily cleaned out.
PLC Touchscreen Interface
Store processes as recipes in this PLC touchscreen interface. This unit replaces the analog cycle start buttons and allows for better monitoring of machine use and time.
A unique feature with barrel tumbling is the ability to create small separate chambers within each barrel. Dividers help reduce part-on-part impingement.
