Vibratory tumbling machines are designed to offer simple and cost-efficient finishing solutions. These machines are ideally used for small parts, making it suitable for belt buckles. These machines can be used for deburring, cleaning, polishing, and removal of rust on belt buckles. Vibratory machines work perfectly with the correct type of media to give you the best possible results.
Centrifugal finishing machines are made to produce fast and efficient results. They are cost-efficient compared to other vibratory tumbling machines. If you have set aside a budget for this type of finishing machine, then we advise you to purchase the centrifugal machine instead, to ensure the best results.
The machine is suitable for smoothening the surfaces of large loads of belt buckles at once. The unloading feature of the machine is automatic which makes the separation between parts and media automatic.
Belt buckles undergo a drying process after they have been polished. Once vibratory deburring of belt buckles has been complete, the belt buckles are then dried in the vibratory drying machine between 5 and 10 minutes. If you fail to complete the drying process, your belt buckles will be prone to tarnishing and corrosion.
If you’re looking for an economical finishing machine, then the rotary barrel tumbling machine is the best option for you. The production time of this machine is slower than other finishing machines. Each production batch takes up to 36 hours to be complete. However, the slower production rate guarantees great finishing results.
The rotary barrel tumbling machine is ideal for polishing and smoothening surfaces of belt buckles. It’s suitable for parts such as stainless steel and other hard metals.
Belt Buckle Materials
These are the most common type of materials for belt buckles. It is cost-efficient, has a great surface appearance, and is good money value.
The process of polishing aluminium belt buckles can be done using any mass finishing machine of your choice such as centrifugal, vibratory, or rotary tumbling machines.
Brass is considered the best material for belt buckles. The brass adds a great look to the belt buckles.
Polishing brass belt buckles requires a variety of methods, as they are more prone to tarnishing compared to other materials. The centrifugal finishing machine and the rotary barrel machine is the best option for polishing brass parts.

1. What does belt buckle polishing mean?
Belt buckle polishing is the process of smoothening the surfaces of belt buckles to enhance and improve surfaces. This protects the belt buckles from contamination and corrosion.
Belt buckles are made up of different materials. These materials include zinc, zamak, bronze, stainless steel, brass, aluminium, and magnesium.
2. What are the benefits of polishing belt buckles?
There is a variety of advantages with polishing belt buckles.
These advantages include:
2.1 Removing casting burrs
Die casting usually leaves part surfaces with unwanted burrs such as sharp and roughened edges.
The polishing process removes the unwanted burrs and produces smooth and satisfactory surfaces on belt buckles.
2.2 Smoothening of surfaces in preparation of electro-plating
Electro-plating is an important process for the lifespan of belt buckles. It aids in the shiny appearance and protects belt buckles from corrosion and other surface damages.
Before electro-plating takes place, the belt buckles undergo smoothening and polishing of surface parts to ensure the effectiveness and success of the electro-plating process.
2.3 Satisfactory Appearance
When it comes to appearance, belt buckles always need to be in the best possible condition. The polishing helps to maintain the shiny and appealing appearance of buckle belts.
3. Why is a mass finishing machine necessary for polishing belt buckles compared to other polishing methods?
Using traditional methods of polishing belt buckles is not as effective and efficient as using mass finishing machines.
Below is a list of benefits of using mass finishing machines for polishing belt buckles:
3.1 Elimination of intensive labor
Unlike traditional methods that require intensive labor to produce great finishing results, the mass finishing machines requires minimal labor with maximum results.
The machines require one operator for multiple production batches.
3.2 Multiple part polishing
The vibratory and centrifugal finishing machines allow operators to produce different batches at the same time.
3.3 Saves time and money
Mass finishing machines will save you time and money.
Traditional and manual polishing methods will require continual investments and mass finishing machines is a one-time investment that will save you money in the long term.
Regarding time, manual and traditional methods of polishing belt buckles is time-consuming. It requires longer hours for achieving good results.
Mass finishing machines guarantee great results in a short time and low costs.
