Tumbling media is a consumable used in all types of mass finishing processes. The primary purpose of vibratory tumbling media is to remove the unwanted material from the surface of the workpieces to create a smooth finish. It can also transfer its surface properties to the parts.
For example, steel tumbling media imparts its shiny surface to the metal parts. However, it also serves as a carrier for the compound and protects the workpieces from colliding with each other.
Tumbling media is a preformed abrasive agent that removes or burnishes unwanted material from the parts. It also provides cushioning for the rapidly moving parts and serves as a carrier for the compound. The compound and the media help maintain a consistent finishing quality by working together harmoniously. In other words, without the right tumbling media, there is no mass finishing.
When selecting the media, you have to consider various factors including size, shape, abrasiveness, internal particle size, and composition of the media. But, you also need to analyze the size, shape, weight, cost, material, burr sizes and surface finishing requirement of the parts and the type of finishing equipment to select the best suitable media.
Inovatec offers a premium range of tumbling media made from raw materials such as walnut shell grit, corn cob grit, zirconia, porcelain, ceramic, and even steel. Our wear-resistant media create a low amount of sludge, making it environment-friendly. We develop the media in our testing centers and labs in China, ensuring the best quality. We also offer free test runs of your sample parts to help you select the best media.
Not all tumbling media are made equal. You have to choose the right one depending on the characteristics of the tumbling media, the workpieces, and the finishing process. Tumbling media is available in various sizes, shapes, and abrasiveness. The selection process is usually a trial-and-error method. It can be a daunting task even for an experienced engineer. You can rest easy with Inovatec though.
At Inovatec, we not only provide a wide range of tumbling media, but also offer free sample testing. You can send us a few samples of your workpieces, and we will find the right tumbling media for you. We will take into account media composition (type), size, shape, weight, cost, parts material, size, and geometry, burr sizes and its location, parts surface requirement, as well as the equipment used when doing so.
