About the W-5 Vibratory Tub

The W-5 Vibratory Finishing Tub is designed to be easy to maintain. The polyurethane-lined tub is durable and long-lasting, and the machine is equipped with a sound cover to reduce noise levels and keep the process contained. The W-5 is its ability to run both wet and dry media, depending on the application. This makes it a versatile choice for manufacturers who need to finish a variety of parts.

The machine also comes with a range of standard features, including:

  • An electronic variable speed drive
  • Digital tachometer
  • Balanced suspension vibration unit

W-5 Basic Operation

The MFI W-5 Tub operates using an electric motor to drive an unbalanced shaft, which creates a powerful vibratory action in the polyurethane-lined tub. Inside the tub, abrasive or non-abrasive media rolls in a large mass, providing a gentle yet thorough finish on your parts. Simply drop your unfinished parts into the mass and let the W-5 Tub do the rest. After a specified amount of time, your parts will be removed and left smoothed and free of sharp edges and burrs.
