How It Works

Mass Finishing tubs utilize an electric motor to drive an unbalanced shaft. This action creates a vibratory action of the polyurethane lined tub. Inside the tub abrasive or non-abrasive media rolls in a large mass. Unfinished parts are dropped into the mass and allowed to roll in the tub. After a specified amount of time, parts are removed and are left smoothed and free of sharp edges and burrs.
