Benefits of High-Energy Finishing for Contract Manufacturers & Job Shops
High-energy centrifugal barrel finishing provides numerous benefits for contract manufacturers and job shops.
Reduce Handwork and Manual Labor – One of the primary advantages is the ability to reduce the need for handwork and manual labor, which can be time-consuming, costly, demanding, and risky.
Achieve a Range of Finishes – Operators are also able to achieve a range of finishing capabilities with an HZ-Series Centrifugal Barrel Finishing Machine. From a simple polish to full-scale deburring and radiusing, operators can choose the finish they want depending on the media used, process time, and the barrel speed. Centrifugal barrel finishers have much shorter cycle times in comparison to vibratory equipment and traditional methods, making it possible to clean up metal, acrylic, rubber, and other materials in a matter of minutes.
Keep Parts Separated – Another key advantage is the machines’ ability to easily separate small parts into their own compartment using barrel dividers. The option to create separate compartments within the four machine barrels helps to avoid part-on-part impingement and damage.
Achieve a Mirror-like Finish – Furthermore, these machines achieve a mirror-like finish that is nearly impossible to achieve by hand, resulting in smoother and more consistent finishes.

Enhance Your Mass Finishing Process with the Right Media Selection
Media is an essential component in the finishing process and is required for the proper operation of any Mass Finishing equipment. Finishing media is carefully selected based on its composition, shape, size, and performance to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of the finishing process.
In addition to the wide variety of media and liquid and powder compounds in our Media Store, we also manufacture our own corn cob blends at our manufacturing facility in Howard Lake, MN.
