How to choose abrasive chips ?

The choice of & rsquo; equipment best suited to a mass finishing operation is an important point in our range of over 150 different models (vibrators, centrifuges different families…).

The choice of media is equally important, see more ; but the range of over 6500 products may seem difficult to understand.

They are chosen according to :

– The objective (deburring,fr, polishing , edges radiusing, brightening, sand blasted effect...) and parts material that define the abrasive power of the chips (more or less abrasive, or polishing) ; thus, for harder materials such as hardened steel or ceramics or zircones, one will choose a more powerful abrasive compared with more ductile materials such as brass, s & rsquo; Aluminum, Niobium or the & rsquo; Or.

– The size and morphology of the parts define the shape and dimensions of the chips
