At JIT Companies we will bring clarity and a gleam to your eye when it comes to answering your questions about the perfect metal finish you are seeking. Our customers have been asking for what many think is the impossible finish, so we have answered by expanding operations to now include High Energy Centrifuge Polishing Machines.
Expanding to Include High Energy Centrifuge Polishing Machines
What normally would take hours to polish a part can now be done in a matter of minutes. This process has the ability to finish complex geometric parts without any other secondary steps. This is made possible by the centrifugal energy created in the counter rotating media drums. The extreme forces generated can be adjusted to achieve between 10-30 G-forces that is placed directly upon the parts surface. This movement between the media and the part creates a true Isotropic finish to all of the part surfaces to create a uniform finish. Because of the high energy that is created, delicate parts can be segmented within the barrels to prevent part impingement during processing.
The large variety of polishing media that is used is based on the part size, part geometry and what material type the part is made from. From there our technicians will determine what type of finish is required; these can range from simple part deburring and flash removal to a beautiful mirror finish. Parts that have parting lines from forging or rough surfaces created during the cast manufacturing process can be easily removed and blended for a flawless finish. Even parts that have been 3D Printed can use this process. Many times a part requires that the sharp edges be removed in order for proper operation of an assembly or perhaps simply making the part safer to handle. If you looking for the perfectly smooth edge that begs you to touch it and hold it in your hand, look no further.
Finish Consistency and Speed
This mass finishing process takes the human factor out of the finishing equation, especially when you are looking for finish consistency and speed. Although our Metal Finishing Artisans at JIT can do amazing things by hand, keeping up with a finely tuned automated process is next to impossible.
