    Finishing and polishing can remove burrs and scale from the surface of the connecting rod, which are key quality defects that affect the life of the connecting rod. Therefore, removing these imperfect surface defects through finishing and polishing methods can greatly improve the durability of the connecting rod.
  • 3. Can you explain how traditional engine connecting rods are polished?
  • The traditional way of polishing connecting rods is manual. It requires a lot of labor and is an annoying process.
    They all use a polishing wheel. Polishing heads of different sizes can be installed on this polishing wheel. According to the different connecting rods, different polishing heads can be replaced for operation. It is also necessary to use polishing paste to speed up the polishing process and make the surface of the connecting rod shiny.
  • 4. How is ShineTec’s engine connecting rod polishing machine polished?
  • Generally speaking, it is divided into two processes. The first is rough finishing, deburring and descaling. Just put your connecting rod blank and tumbling abrasive media into the machine, and then add an appropriate amount of finishing liquid and clean water. After the rough finishing process is completed, the connecting rod can be taken out and transferred to the fine polishing process, which uses polishing to improve the gloss and brightness of the product surface. Just put the connecting rod and the porcelain abrasive media for fine polishing into the machine, add an appropriate amount of polishing chemical liquid and water, and start the machine. The entire polishing process is fully automatic, and you can get a shiny finished connecting rod after the polishing is completed.
  • 5. What are the benefits of using ShineTec’s finishing and polishing machine to polish engine connecting rods?
  • The benefits are many:

    5.1 Excellent surface quality. The traditional manual polishing method depends on the skills and skilled procedures mastered by the workers. The finished products polished by each worker will result in different surface polishing quality, and it is difficult to achieve consistent surface quality of the finished products.
    Polishing with our ShineTec finishing machines can avoid these problems and achieve consistent surface polishing quality.

    5.2 Save man-hours. Polishing each piece by hand requires many man-hours. A worker can only handle one piece of connecting rod at a time. Using ShineTec’s engine connecting rod deburring and descaling solutions, large batches can be processed fully automatically at one time. The operating hours are greatly reduced.

    5.3 low cost. Finishing and polishing mainly consist of two costs. One is the purchase cost of machinery and equipment, and the other is the labor cost of polishing. Manual polishing requires a large number of workers, but using our ShineTec professional finishing machine to polish large quantities of connecting rods only requires one operator. The one-time setup cost of the equipment will be higher than manual polishing tools such as polishing wheels, but it can be used for a long time. The tumbling ceramic media can generally be used for several months or even years after purchase. They are not more expensive than grinding wheels and polishing heads. The key is This saves a lot of labor costs, and overall, the cost of polishing will be greatly reduced.

    5.4 No specially trained polishing operators are required. Hand polishing requires extensive training of operators upfront. Using our mechanized high-volume automated finishing and polishing solutions is simple and requires no dedicated employee training.

    5.5 Not a labor-intensive polishing process. Traditional manual polishing is a typical labor-intensive process and requires a lot of labor. The polishing process of engine piston and connecting rod parts provided by ShineTec is completely mechanized. Only one worker is required to control the machine’s switch, which greatly reduces the use of labor.

    5.6 Non-destructive surface polishing process. The quality of hand polishing depends on the skill of the polisher. Because manpower is uncontrollable, sometimes the polishing process may inevitably cause damage to the product surface. Using ShineTec’s finishing and polishing process, as long as the correct process flow and tumbling ceramic media are determined through process samples in the early stage, the final product of the engine connecting rod will have a uniform surface quality.

    5.7 Extremely low maintenance costs.
    When determining the polishing process for engine connecting rod accessories, routine maintenance costs are also an important factor that should be considered. ShineTec’s deburring and polishing machines are easy to use and operate and do not require additional special tools or trained operators. Therefore, daily maintenance costs are extremely low.

    5.8 Large batch processing. ShineTec’s engine connecting rod polishing machine has the capability of mechanized processing of large batches at one time. It can not only polish the same products in batches, but also deburr and polish connecting rods with different shapes and sizes in the same batch. It can be called an engine connecting rod polisher.
  • 6. Can you explain the differences between polishing by different finishing machines?
  • ShineTec’s finishing and polishing machines mainly have three common types that can be used for professional polishing of engine connecting rods. It can meet the needs of deburring, descaling, degreasing, deflashing, polishing and brightening.

    6.1 Vibratory Finishing Machine。 The vibrating finishing machine is the most commonly used machine for polishing engine connecting rod parts. This model is the easiest to use and operate. The high-strength and elastomer PU lining of the working chamber can protect the connecting rod and tumbling ceramic media from hitting and cutting the inner wall iron plate. It is the most cost-effective and economical engine connecting rod polishing process solution. It can feed large quantities of connecting rods at one time and is suitable for polishing small and medium-sized engine connecting rods.

    6.2 Rectangular Tub Finishing Machine。 Vibratory rectangular tub polishers can be used to polish long wishbones and crossmember links. The rectangular working chamber can be divided into several independent spaces with partitions, so that each connecting rod can be polished in a separate space without collision damage.

    6.3 Centrifugal Barrel Finishing Machine. The centrifugal barrel finisher relies on centrifugal force to drive the working barrel for polishing. It is mainly used to clean and polish connecting rods during the fine polishing stage. The polishing efficiency of this model is very high, and it can produce a mirror-like polishing effect on the surface of the connecting rod within half an hour. Centrifugal barrel finishing machines are divided into two types according to different loading and unloading methods. One is that the barrel has a relatively large capacity and cannot be removed. There is a sealing cover on the barrel, and loading and unloading tumbling media go directly through the opening of the barrel. The other is that the working barrel has a small capacity and can be taken out of the machine. The loading and unloading tumbling media are in the machine. Performed externally, suitable for smaller sized connecting rod polishing.
  • 7. Are there any differences in finishing and polishing between the different abrasive media provided by ShineTec?
  • The abrasive media used to remove burrs, scale and flash from engine connecting rods are also called ceramic tumbling media or polishing media. Each abrasive media corresponds to a different polishing process. Ceramic deburring media are generally used for deburring, deflashing, and descaling. Stainless steel media or polishing porcelain media and high-density porcelain media are generally used to improve brightness. For different shapes and sizes of connecting rods, each tumbling media has different shapes and sizes to choose from.

    7.1 Ceramic Deburring Media. Deburring media is made by mixing brown corundum sand with cutting force with clay, alumina powder, etc., and then sintering it in a high-temperature kiln after shaping. According to the different particle sizes of brown corundum sand, it is divided into heavy cutting, medium cutting and light cutting types, which are suitable for different materials. To measure the quality of a deburring media, there are several indicators such as cutting force, wear resistance, dimensional consistency, hardness, and color difference. The ceramic media produced by ShineTec all use the best first-grade brown corundum new sand, clay raw materials from major manufacturers in the industry, strict molding production processes, and proper sintering temperature control. The above indicators of the tumbling ceramic media are all Ahead of domestic peers. Especially in the key indicator of wear resistance, it is far ahead of competing products. The use time can be extended by 2-3 times, which can save a lot of consumable costs for the manufacturers.

    7.2 Resin Media. Also called plastic media, polyester media, it is obtained by mixing brown corundum sand with resin and curing it. There are also three different finishing levels, heavy cutting, medium cutting, and light cutting. Commonly used shapes include cone, triangle, tetrahedron, and bullet shape. This kind of tumbling finishing media is suitable for polishing soft parts made of aluminum alloy, zinc alloy, copper and other materials.

    7.3 Porcelain Media. This kind of tumbling abrasive media is mainly made of sintered kaolin and alumina powder. It does not contain brown corundum sand and has no cutting force. Therefore, it is mainly used to polish the surface brightness. That is the last fine finishing and polishing process. The quality of the product is mainly determined by the alumina powder content, which ranges from 30% to 70%. The higher the content, the greater the density and specific gravity, and the higher the gloss and brightness of the polished product surface. Of course, sintering temperature is also a key factor affecting quality. Like brown corundum abrasives, tumbling porcelain media have various shapes, including sphere, triangle, oblique triangle, right cylinder, oblique cylinder, three-star, oblique three-star, ellipse, etc., and the specifications and sizes also vary widely.

    7.4 Stainless Steel Media. Since the specific density of stainless steel can reach 7.8 grams/cubic centimeter, which is three times that of porcelain media, the surface of the polished product has the highest density and the highest brightness. Suitable for surface polishing of hard metals. Not suitable for soft metal workpieces such as aluminum alloys and copper. This polishing media has virtually no wear and can be used continuously for decades. The stainless steel media shapes include ball, ballcone, ufo, and pins shapes, and the materials include AISI201, AISI304, AISI316, AISI420, and AISI440C, which are suitable for different acidic or perishable environments.

    7.5 Walnut Shells or Corncob Media. Walnut shell or corncob media is a biodegradable vegetable abrasive. It is mainly used for the drying process after polishing the engine connecting rods. This tumbling abrasive media also comes in different sizes depending on the particle size. In addition to absorbing water and drying, it also has the ability to adsorb impurities and dust on the surface of the connecting rod to the abrasive, playing a cleaning role. It is a dust-free cleaning process.
  • 8. Are there any engine connecting rods that can be polished using ShineTec’s polishing machine?
  • ShineTec’s mass finishing machines are suitable for almost all types of engine connecting rods on the market.

    8.1 Titanium alloy connecting rod. Titanium alloy connecting rods are high-end products on the market because of their strength and durability. Its performance is unmatched by other connecting rod products. A vibratory finishing machine can be used for cleaning and polishing.

    8.2 Cast iron connecting rod. Because it is mainly produced from low carbon steel, its strength is lower than that of stainless steel connecting rods. Due to its low production cost, it is the most widely used connecting rod product on the market. Vibratory finishing machines can be used for finishing and polishing.

    8.3 Machined connecting rods. The material can be produced from different metals, depending on the type of engine used. The most suitable machine is a centrifugal barrel finishing machine, which can quickly remove tool lines, burrs, and scale. A vibrating finisher can also be used.

    8.4 Supercharged engine engine connecting rods. Because it is used in high fatigue strength environments, high-strength materials will be used to produce this connecting rod. Generally used in high-horsepower heavy-duty engines. Proper polishing process can repair surface defects and extend the service life of connecting rods. Suitable for polishing using a centrifugal barrel finishing machine.

    8.5 Forged engine connecting rods. Compared with cast iron connecting rods, forged connecting rods have higher durability. The tighter metal crystal structure formed inside the forged parts ensures higher strength of the product. But forged connecting rods have more surface imperfections. Vibratory or centrifugal barrel finishing machines can be used to polish this product.

    8.6 Aluminum alloy connecting rod. Aluminum alloy connecting rods have better shock absorption performance. It can reduce the stress on the engine crankshaft and extend its service life. Because it is a soft metal, the tumbling finishing media used for deburring, descaling must be a resin tumbling media. The mass finishing machine can be a vibratory finishing machine or a centrifugal barrel finishing machine.

What is the automatic mass finishing system?

About Automatic Mass Finishing System

  • 1. What is the automatic mass finishing system?
  • The automatic mass finishing system, also called the automatic finishing and polishing production line, is a mechanical equipment for finishing and polishing that uses modern transmission and electrical control technology from a series of processes such as feeding, deburring, polishing, cleaning, separating, drying, and discharging, combined into a complete set of integrated assembly lines. The main purpose is to reduce manual work, improve production efficiency, reduce production costs, and ensure the surface treatment quality of product workpieces.
  • 2. Why do I need to use the automatic mass finishing system?
  • For some manufacturers who need to carry out a large amount of daily finishing and polishing treatments such as deburring, descaling, deflashing, derusting degreasing, cleaning, polishing and brightening, etc., they are generally equipped with multiple finishing and polishing machines and Complete with auxiliary equipment. For example, some machines are used for rough finishing, some machines are used for fine finishing, and some machines are used for polishing brightness. The flow of product workpieces between different machines requires loading, unloading, and screening, cleaning, transportation, drying and other different processes, each process requires personnel to operate. Medium and large operating capacitibility of mass finishing machines usually process hundreds or even thousands of kilograms every time. The labor intensity of loading and unloading so many parts into different machines is huge. Moreover, manual loading and unloading takes at least half an hour at a time. Therefore, using independent machines to perform polishing operations is a time-consuming and laborious task that requires a lot of labor costs and has low production efficiency.

    In order to reduce labor intensity and improve work efficiency, we can design and connect the finishing and polishing machines at different process points using auxiliary facilities such as mechanical hydraulic lifting, conveying transmission, online cleaning, and online separating, so that the product workpiece can be completely processed from feeding to finished product discharging. Realize online operation, reduce manual intervention, and realize automated mass finishing functions.
    Using these modern mechanical and electrical control technologies, you can turn your mass finishing equipment into a fully automatic CNC finishing machine, greatly improving equipment utilization, reducing labor costs, increasing finishing and polishing efficiency, and creating greater profits for your factory. If you don’t know where to find this kind of automated mass finishing system, we can analyze the calculation data and propose a solution based on your actual production situation.

  • 3. What systems does the automatic automatic mass finishing system consist of?
  • 3.1 Automatic loading system. The first machine that starts the finishing process will be equipped with a material lifting hopper. Workers only need to put the abrasive media or product workpieces before rough finishing into the hopper and control the lifting of the hopper to put the materials into the machine.

    3.2 Tumbling finishing and polishing machines. The finishing machine is the main component of the automatic finishing and polishing production line. This part of the system can be vibratory finishing machine, or centrifugal disc finishing machine, or centrifugal barrl finishing machine, even Rotary tumbling barrel finishing machine.

    3.3 Auxiliary discharging device. Every finishing machine needs to unload after finishing is completed. When the vibrating finishing machine discharges materials, it is necessary to configure a hydraulic or pneumatic turning plate inside the machine to connect the bottom of the machine’s working chamber and the discharge port separating screen. When the material needs to be discharged, press the control button to turn the flap up and close the separating screen, so that the workpiece can automatically climb from the groove to the separating screen and output the workpiece. When the centrifugal disc finishing machine discharges materials, it is necessary to use the hydraulic struts at the bottom of the barrel of the machine to hold up the barrel and turn it over, so that the abrasive media and the workpiece can be poured into the built-in vibrating separator for discharge. Centrifugal barrel finishing machines are rarely integrated into automatic production lines. There is no need to equip additional special equipment when discharging materials. You only need to turn the barrel opening downwards to pour out the materials.

    3.4 Separating device. Each machine is equipped with a separating screen to automatically separate workpieces and abrasives after discharging. The vibrating polishing machine is built into the working bowl, and the other three machines require additional special separating screens.

    3.5 Transmission system. Using mesh belts and rollers, the separated workpieces are transferred to the machine for the next process. Some transfer systems are also equipped with a flushing function to clean the workpiece again during the transfer process.

    3.6 Water-liquid circulation system. Using the sewage treatment system, the flushed wastewater containing polishing compound is recycled and filtered and pumped into the machine again for use.

    3.7 Drying system. There are two ways, one is to transport the cleaned workpieces into a vibrating dryer, the other is to equip an online pass-through drying box to dry the workpieces on the conveyor belt.

  • 4. What types of automatic automatic mass finishing system does ShineTec have?
  • According to different finishing machines, there are four types of automatic mass finishing system: vibratory finishing system, centrifugal disc finishing system, centrifugal barrel finishing system, and barrel tumbling finishing system. The first two models are most commonly integrated into production lines.
  • 5. Where can the automatic mass finishing system be used?
  • All factories that currently need to use multiple finishing machines for surface treatment processes such as deburring and descaling can consider configuring automated mass finishing system.
    Here are some questions you can pre-evaluate:

    How do your product workpieces flow between polishing machines in different processes?

    How long does it take to transfer between each different process?

    How did you add water and polish compound?

    How do you separate tumbling media and workpieces?

    If an automatic assembly line is used for circulation, how many finishing batches can be added?

    On this basis, after comparing the investment returns, you can consider whether to invest in this kind of automated mass finishing production line.

  • 6. How to choose a suitable automatic mass finishing system?
  • It is indeed a challenge to choose an automated mass finishing system that is most suitable for your product finishing and polishing process.

    The tumbling barrel finishing automated production line is the slowest type of work efficiency, but it can achieve the most beautiful results for the surface polish quality of the product, especially for surface finish and gloss. In terms of brightness, it can have an effect close to mirror polishing.

    Automatic vibratory (vibrating) finishing system are the most widely used type. Its working efficiency is much higher than that of the barrel finishing type. Because of the built-in separating screen, the material can be discharged directly from the working chamber, and there is no need to add a hydraulic lifting device to flip the working barrel. Therefore, the manufacturing cost of the entire production line can be lower than that of the disc finishing type and centrifugal barrel finishing type.

    Automatic centrifugal disc finishing system are also widely used. It has the highest working efficiency and can quickly achieve finishing and polishing effects. Since this type of machine needs to use a hydraulic lifting device to pour the materials in the barrel into a separately configured screen when discharging materials, the overall cost of the assembly line is higher.

    Automatic centrifugal barrel finishing system is suitable for surface treatment of precision parts. Because the processing capacity is small, it is not necessary to integrate into the assembly line, so there are few application areas.
    If you don’t know which type of mass finishing system your product is suitable for, please contact us. ShineTec will conduct professional evaluation analysis and calculations for you and provide you with the most cost-effective solution.

    8.2 Tumbling media for fine finishing, white Corundum finishing media, chrome corundum finishing media, 3P finishing media, etc., because the particle size of the micropowder contained in it is very fine, some of which are nearly 2000-3000 mesh, it can continuously perform micro-cutting on the surface of the workpiece to form a more delicate surface roughness.

    8.3 Tumbling media for polishing, include porcelain media, high-density porcelain media (a high-alumina porcelain media with an alumina content of more than 95%), stainless steel media, walnut shell polishing media, corn cob polishing media and so on. The main purpose is to improve the gloss and brightness of the workpiece surface.

    If you don’t know which is the best polishing media, please contact us and ShineTec can provide you with professional suggestions and answers.

  • 9. How long does it take to complete the polishing process on the automatic mass finishing system?
  • Now, the time it takes to polish a batch of workpieces using an automatic mass finishing system is definitely much shorter than manually operating several independent finishing machines.

    The length of processing time depends on which type of production line you have applied. Generally speaking, the centrifugal disc type and barrel type can complete the grinding work within 30 minutes. With discharging, cleaning and other processes, the entire process can be completed in as fast as 1 hour from feeding to discharging. The vibration-type unit may take 2 hours to complete the entire process, while the tumbling barrel-type unit may take longer and may take several hours to complete the finishing work.

  • 10. What is the daily maintenance of the automatic mass finishing system?
  • Regular daily maintenance can keep your polishing automatic production line in the best working condition, extend the service life of the machine, and reduce maintenance expenses.

    10.1 Inspection of mechanical components. The vibrating finishing automatic production line needs to add lubricating grease to the vibration motor used in the machine every month; the disc automatic finishing production line needs to check whether the gap between the barrel and the chassis is normal, whether there is a chuck, and whether the transmission belt is Relaxation; for a centrifugal barrel automatic polishing production line, it is necessary to check whether the transmission chain, sprocket or timing belt is worn, whether there is any abnormal noise during operation, and whether the barrel cover can be sealed; for a tumbling barrel-type automatic polishing production line, it is also necessary to check whether the transmission part is working Normal, there is no leakage after the cover is sealed. Some pneumatic or hydraulic devices on the production line also need to be checked for air and liquid leaks.

    10.2 Check the loading of abrasive media used. The loading of abrasive media in the machine should be checked before each start-up. Too much or too little usage will cause damage to the machine or product workpiece, affecting the efficiency of finishing and polishing.

    10.3 Water circulation system inspection. Check whether the water inlet, drainage, and quantitative filling of polishing compound are working properly. Pay special attention to whether the drainage pipe of the machine is blocked.

    10.4 PU lining examination. Check whether the PU or rubber lining of the machine is worn or damaged. If so, it needs to be replaced immediately.

    10.5 Don’t overdo it. Do not overload abrasive media and product workpieces into the machine. Generally, the total volume of materials does not exceed 70% of the total capacity of the machine. If stainless steel media need to be used in the machine, due to their large proportion, they are generally controlled within 50%.
