How to remove burrs and oxide scales from hardware wrenches tools and achieve a mirror polishing surface?

Hardware wrench tool deburring,descaling and mirror polishing process technology method

Hardware tools are necessities in our daily production. The name of hardware originally refers to tools made of five metals: gold, silver, copper, iron, and tin. However, with the development of technology today, the materials used in hardware tools have long broken through the original five metal limitations and are changing with each passing day. Today we will share a case of deburring and descaling of an open-end wrench tool product made of chrome-vanadium alloy steel after stamping, reducing surface roughness, and mirror polishing. This finishing process solution is also suitable for the deburring, descaling, mirror finishing and polishing of hardware wrench tools made of other materials such as high-carbon steel, stainless steel, and high-manganese alloy steel.

5. Additional instructions
  • Chrome vanadium steel is an alloy tool steel with chromium (CR) and vanadium (V) alloy elements. Its comprehensive strength and toughness are better than carbon steel, making it an ideal material for high-quality tools. This product is small in size and requires high finishing efficiency. Therefore, the rough finishing machine uses a centrifugal disc finisher, which has strong finishing force and high cutting efficiency. The medium-cutting force of the angle cut tri-angle ceramic tumbling media is used for rough finishing, which can achieve the effect of rapid deburring and descaling.
  • Fine finishing uses light cutting force plastic media, also called polyester media. This tumbling media has small grit size and light weight, will not cause deformation of the workpiece, and can further reduce the surface roughness.
  • The last step after fine finishing is to use a mirror polisher and mirror polishing abrasive media to enhance the brightness and mirror polishing.

Deburring, descaling and mirror polishing technology method for deep drawing stamping parts of stainless steel

How to remove burrs, oxide scale, stretch lines and mirror polish the stainless steel deep drawing stamping parts?

Metal drawing stamping process is a common metal forming process. The difference between it and the standard stamping process is that standard stamping does not significantly change the depth of the formed product, while drawing (stretching) stamping generally significantly increases the depth of the formed product. Most of the daily necessities we use are made of metal by deep drawing and stamping processes. Today we will share a case of reducing surface roughness and mirror polishing of parts made of 304 stainless steel plates after deep drawing and stamping. This polishing process solution is also suitable for deburring, descaling, removing stretch marks, wrinkles, and mirror polishing of hardware drawing and stamping parts made of other materials such as aluminum alloy, carbon steel, copper, or nickel-titanium alloy.

5. Additional instructions
  • Because stainless steel metal sheet processing parts are easily deformed, a centrifugal finishing machine with a small-capacity working barrel is used to reduce the operating speed and use it with softer texture cone-shaped resin media (also called plastic media) is used to chamfer and deburr. If you use ceramic tumbling media or other very hard abrasive media will cause problems such as deformation and bending of the workpiece, and ceramic deburring media can easily contaminate the stainless steel surface and make the surface black.
  • So why don’t polish parts use vibratory polishers? Because the vibrating polishing machine will cause the thin parts to stick to each other, and multiple pieces will fit together, which will not achieve the finishing and polishing effect.
  • Products can be separated automatically using a vibrating separator, to control the vibration amplitude of the vibrating separator so that no bending deformation occurs due to mutual collision.
  • In order to improve the anti-rust and anti-corrosion performance of the product after water cleaning, vibrating dryer, with corn cob polishing media, dry the moisture and wipe away water stains on the surface of the product.

Laser cutting workpieces made of plastic or acrylic are suitable for polishing with high density porcelain tumbling media. This tumbling media does not contain abrasive sand, has no cutting force, and will not scratch the surface of the product.

  • 1. What are laser cut parts?
  • Laser cutting parts are workpieces produced using laser cutting processing technology. It is used in spare parts for products with high precision requirements in various industrial fields.
  • 2. Why do laser cut parts need to be deburred?
  • Laser-cut parts produced during processing must undergo surface treatment processes such as deburring and polishing.
    The benefits of applying this finishing process are as follows:

    2.1 Remove oxide layer.
    Laser cutting uses gases such as oxygen or carbon dioxide as assistance. These gases will form an oxide layer on the surface of the product during high-temperature cutting. It may corrode or rust the parts, so you must polish these cutting parts to remove the oxide layer.

    2.2 Improve product appearance quality.
    The appearance of a product affects its quality. If you are a practitioner of machined parts, using the deburring and finishing process can provide a beautiful and uniform appearance to the workpiece.

    2.3 Repair product surface quality.
    The laser cutting process may cause certain appearance defects to the workpiece, such as silk lines, cracks, pitting, etc. Through finishing and polishing, these defects can be repaired, thereby improving product yield and reducing production costs.

    2.4 Chamfer processing.
    Laser cutting will produce sharp edges or corners, which may cause harm to users during use.
    After chamfering, sharp edges can be removed and sharp corners can be smoothed and rounded. It can also reduce product stress, which affects product durability and quality stability.

    2.5 Produces a special matte effect.
    Some products may require a matte finish. This demand can be met by using appropriate tumbling abrasive media and correct finishing and polishing processes.

    2.6 Improve security.
    Flashes, sharp edges, and sharp corners on the surface of the workpiece may cause harm to the user. Therefore, it is necessary to use a deburring and finishing machine for polishing in the subsequent process to improve the surface quality of the product.
  • 3. Can you explain the method of deburring from laser cutting workpieces?
  • Currently, many laser-cut parts are still polished manually. For example, traditional deburring methods such as sandpaper, power tools with grinding heads, belt sanders, and grinding wheels are used.
    These backward polishing methods are inefficient, not environmentally friendly, and also bring many safety hazards.
    Some new deburring processes include ultrasonic, thermal energy, electrochemical, sandblasting, shot blasting and other methods. Each has its own characteristics and limitations.
    The tumbling finishing and polishing process we currently provide is a low-cost, high-volume, and high-efficiency mechanized deburring and polishing method, which is especially suitable for some special-shaped laser cutting parts with complex cavities.
  • 4. What kind of equipment is the laser cutting workpiece deburring machine?
  • Laser cutting parts polishing machine is a machine used to deburr, descale, chamfer, clean, degrease, and polish and brighten laser cut products. Using the right tumbling abrasive media and choosing the right machine type will make your process more efficient. At the same time, it can also reduce labor costs, reduce labor intensity, and improve production efficiency.
  • 5. What are the advantages of laser cutting parts finishing and polishing machines?
  • The benefits of laser cutting parts deburring and polishing machines are as follows:

    5.1 Lower processing costs. Manual deburring requires high labor costs, more tools and abrasive material losses. Our finishing and polishing machine for laser cutting is a one-time investment. Later, you only need to purchase some tumbling media, chemical compound liquid regularly. Only very little manual participation is required during the processing, so labor costs will be greatly reduced.

    5.2 Save time. It is obvious that machine deburring and polishing can greatly save operating time compared to manual polishing. Your productivity can be greatly improved.

    5.3 Non-destructive surface treatment. Use suitable matching tumbling finishing media and choose the correct mass finishing equipment. After completing the polishing processes such as deburring and descaling, your product workpiece will not change in shape, position and size. It is a lossless process. If it is polished by hand, due to the different handling strength of each workpiece, it may have an impact on the size of the product, and each one is not uniform.

    5.4 Get the best surface quality. The quality of product appearance determines the quality of the product. Manual polishing cannot achieve a consistently stable product surface quality. But a polishing machine can give you a consistent look. Finishing time and surface roughness level can be controlled, helping you to stand out in the fierce market competition.

    5.5 Save labor. At present, the labor cost of product polishing process accounts for a large proportion of the overall product cost. ShineTec’s finishing and polishing machine allows a single worker to perform multiple batches of mechanized deburring, descaling and polishing, which will save a lot of labor costs and greatly reduce labor intensity.

    5.6 High-volume polishing. Our finishing and polishing solutions are characterized by high-volume, high-efficiency, mechanized automatic finishing. Laser cutting parts of different shapes and sizes can be processed in the same polishing machine. If combined with automated assembly lines, your production efficiency and product quality can be greatly improved.

    5.7 Extremely low maintenance costs. The daily maintenance cost of the machine and the loss of tumbling media are the most important factors for business owners to consider. ShineTec’s finishing and polishing machines have almost no maintenance costs. In addition to regularly adding a little lubricant to the motor, there are no other special tools that need to be purchased.

    5.8 No specially trained operators are required. Manual finishing and polishing requires special training for operators first. This is a high labor cost and an uncontrollable link in the production process. The mass finishing machines we provide are very simple to operate. Workers only need to load and unload materials. The polishing process of the machine does not require manual participation.

    5.9 Safe production environment. Laser-cut parts may have sharp corners, burrs or flash edges, which may cause harm to front-line workers. Debris generated during manual polishing may also enter people’s eyes or cause skin allergic reactions. Using finishing and polishing machines can avoid these phenomena. Provide production workers with a safe and reliable production working environment.

    5.10 Improve the adhesion of electroplating, paint and coatings. Some laser-cut parts may require electroplating, painting or coating treatment in the final stage. If polished by hand, the appearance of the product will be inconsistent, resulting in unstable surface quality of the finished product. After using our tumbling finishing and polishing, there will be a uniform surface quality before subsequent surface treatment, and a reliable and stable product quality will be obtained later.
  • 6. What types of laser cutting parts deburring machines does ShineTec have?
  • ShineTec provides different tumbling finishing and polishing machines that can be used to polish laser cut parts. They are vibratory/vibrating deburring and finishing machines, centrifugal barrel finishing machines, centrifugal disc finishing machines, and barrel tumbling finishing machines. Depending on the material, shape, specification and size of the workpiece, we can select the correct machine model and matching ceramic deburring media, porcelain polishing media and other tumbling media to meet your process requirements.

    6.1 Vibratory Finishing Machine. Vibration type, also called vibrating finishing and polishing machine, is the most commonly used equipment for deburring and polishing laser cutting parts. It is characterized by strong applicability, large processing capacity, easy operation, convenient loading and unloading, and controllable process. Generally, small and medium-sized special-shaped workpieces can be processed. The disadvantage is that it is not easy to penetrate deep into the cavity.

    6.2 Centrifugal Barrel Finishing Machine。 The centrifugal barrel finishing type, is a device suitable for finishing and polishing some small-sized laser cutting workpieces. It is characterized by strong cutting force, short processing time, and the ability to penetrate deep into the inner holes and gaps of the workpiece. The disadvantage is that the processing capacity is not large at one time, and loading and unloading is time-consuming.

    6.3 Centrfugal Disc Finishing Machine。 The centrifugal disc finishing machine is suitable for processing some laser cutting workpiece products with large burrs. It is characterized by the strongest cutting force, short processing time and easy loading and unloading. Generally speaking, compared with vibratory polishing machines, the finishing and polishing efficiency can be increased by about 30 times. The disadvantage is that it is not suitable for some thin laser cutting parts and is easy to deform or get stuck in the gaps of the machine chassis.

    6.4 Tumbling Barrel Finishing Machine. Also called rotary barrel polishing machine. It is suitable for parts with high surface polishing brightness and gloss requirements. It is characterized by slow work and careful work, combined with special abrasive media, such as walnut shells, corn cobs, wood, bamboo chips and other plant abrasives, and polishing paste, which can bring a mirror-like shiny surface effect. The disadvantage is that the processing time is slow and the efficiency is low. Some parts may need to be processed for several days at a time. It is also not suitable for some easily deformed laser cutting workpieces.
  • 7. What deburring abrasive media are used in laser cutting parts deburring machines?
  • The tumbling media used for finishing and polishing laser cutting parts are also called mass finishing media. ShineTec offers a wide range of abrasive media. The factors that affect the quality of abrasives mainly include cutting force, wear resistance, specific gravity density, hardness, appearance size, color and other indicators. High-quality raw materials and scientific production process control bring high-quality abrasive media. The main types are as follows:

    7.1 Brown Corundum Ceramic Deburring Media. Brown corundum ceramic media is a commonly used abrasive material used for deburring, descaling, deflashing and finishing of laser cutting parts. Suitable for hard metal parts. The deburring ceramic media provided by ShineTec are available in triangular, cylindrical, spherical, conical, three-star, oval, pyramid, tetrahedral and other shapes. Each shape has different specifications and sizes. Each abrasive media also has different cutting force levels. Heavy cutting force deburring media are used for workpieces that require a lot of finishing and cutting force, and light cutting force deburring media are used for some product workpieces that require a lot of smoothness.

    7.2 High Alumina Porcelain Media. High-alumina porcelain media do not contain brown corundum sand with strong cutting force. Therefore, this tumbling polishing media has no cutting force and cannot be used for deburring, descaling and other processing. Because of the high alumina content, the polishing abrasive media formed after final sintering has a large specific gravity, dense internal structure, and strong hardness. It is suitable for polishing processes that improve the surface brightness of laser cutting workpieces. The greater the specific density, the higher the surface brightness of the treated product. The appearance color is porcelain white, and the shapes are generally spherical, triangular, cylindrical, oval, etc.

    7.3 Resin Media。 Tumbling resin media are also called Plastic Media, Polyester Media. Because they have a moderately elastic surface, they are suitable for polishing and polishing laser cutting parts produced from soft metals such as aluminum alloys. Resin grinding stone is an abrasive material made of resin mixed with corundum sand powder through a curing reaction. It is also suitable for deburring and polishing workpieces made of materials such as copper and plastic. ShineTec can provide resin abrasives in conical, pyramid, triangular, three-star, bullet and other shapes. Brown corundum sand containing different mesh numbers can bring different cutting forces, and can also be divided into heavy cutting, medium cutting, and light cutting grades.

    7.4 Stainless Steel Media。 This polishing media is made of stainless steel. Because it has no cutting force and a density of up to 7.8 g/cm3, it is also used to polish the surface brightness of laser-cut parts. The specific gravity is more than three times higher than that of high-alumina porcelain polishing media, and the surface brightness obtained after polishing is also far superior to that of high-alumina porcelain polishing media. The shapes include ball, ballcone (ufo), and pin shapes, which are suitable for brightening metal workpieces.

    7.5 Mirror Polishing Media. It is mainly produced by processing walnut shells, corn cobs, cork pellets, bamboo chips, etc. In addition to their finishing and polishing functions, walnut shells and corncobs are also used to dry cleaned workpieces in a vibration dryer because of their strong water absorption. Vegetable tumbling media are mainly used to polish the surface brightness of laser cutting parts. When used in conjunction with a barrel tumbling polishing machine, a mirror-like bright effect can be achieved.

The production and manufacturing process of vibratory finishing machines

Let’s take a look at how a Vibratory Finishing Machine changes from a steel plate into a polishing artifacts for deburring and descaling.

Vibratory finishing machine production process
  • 1. Blanking

    The purchased steel plates of standard sizes are cut into small iron plates according to the sizes of different machine models. The factors that affect the quality of machine products in this link are the quality and thickness of the steel plate. Our steel plates are all from the large factory of Shanghai Baosteel, with uniform thickness, and are all 4mm thick plates.
  • 2. Forming

    The cut steel plate is rolled into a cylinder with a plate rolling machine, which is used as the base of the machine and the barrel-shaped cylinder in the middle of the working chamber for installing the motor. Another main component is the bowl-shaped working chamber of the machine, which is pressed out using a hydraulic press and a special mold. In this way, the main components of the machine frame are finished.
  • 3. Welding

    This process is to weld the two ends of the rolled cylinder just now, and at the same time weld the bottom heel under the base to assemble the support of the vibration spring. This process can also affect the quality of the machine. Because the welds are not up to standard, problems such as cracking and falling off may occur during future use.
  • 4. Inspection and Finishing

    Check the surface condition of the weld, remove welding slag and oxide scale, use a grinder to grind the weld, and polish flash and burrs. Everyone knows that details are the devil, especially in the production process of industrial products, some seemingly inconspicuous small details often determine the final quality of the product. Blisters, small cracks in welds, flash and burrs on the surface of accessories will ultimately determine the appearance quality and service life of the machine.
  • 5. PU Casting

    Lining the inner wall of the hydraulically formed working tank with wear-resistant polyurethane colloid is the task of this process. During casting, a mold with a diameter smaller than the external frame body should be placed in the chamber, the external frame body and the mold should be fixed, and then the hot-melted PU glue should be poured into the gap between the frame and the mold. After the colloid cools and solidifies, it can be removed. After molding, the working chamber lined with PU glue is ready. This link is a key process that affects the service life of the machine. The wear resistance, thickness, and hardness of PU glue are factors that affect the length of use. Our polyester raw materials are all products from Dow Chemical (DOW) in the United States, and the casting thickness can reach about 15-20cm.
  • 6. Painting

    The next step is to spray paint on the surface of the working chamber and base, which can protect the iron plate and improve the aesthetics of the machine. Apply putty on the surface of the iron plate first to repair some obvious defects, such as pits, gaps, etc. After the putty dries, you can spray various beautiful colors.
  • 7. Assembling

    All required parts are ready. The next step is to put them together. First, a vibration motor needs to be installed in the middle cylindrical barrel of the machine. Install the motor to the base using a flange. The upper and lower ends of the motor are equipped with eccentric swing arm, commonly known as hammers. This is the main component for adjusting the direction and speed of the machine’s movement.
    Another major installation task is the installation of the base spring. Put the springs one by one on the support tubes on the base, so that the working chamber is suspended and supported on the base. The eccentric excitation force of the vibration motor will be brought to the chamber body to produce a spiral tumbling motion.
  • 8. Self Testing

    After all the installation steps are completed, it is the last step of power-on self-test. Connect the machine’s power cord to the control box and press the start button to start the machine. In this step, you need to check whether the direction of rotation and rolling of the machine is correct, whether the vibration frequency and amplitude are normal, whether there is any abnormal noise, and whether the installation and tightening bolts are loose. If everything is OK, it can be packaged and shipped.

What is stainless steel media?

About Stainless Steel Media

  • 1. What is stainless steel media?
  • As the name suggests, stainless steel media are tumbling media made of stainless steel. This is a kind of mass finishng, tumbling polishing, brightening and smoothing abrasive media mainly used in the finishing industry.
    Stainless steel media act on your product parts and workpieces and have the functions of deburring, cleaning, degreasing, brightening, and mirror polishing. Most metal parts can obtain a shiny surface effect after polishing.
    High-quality stainless steel raw materials produce high-quality stainless steel media. They have a long service life and can be used for a long time. They are the best choice for tumbling, mass finishing and polishing processes. At the same time, the impact of stainless steel media can improve the surface strength of product parts and repair surface defects.

  • 2. What are the uses of stainless steel media?
  • Stainless steel media are widely used in the finishing and polishing industry of tumbling, vibrating, mass finishing and polishing. Specific applications are as follows:

    2.1 Deburring. Stainless steel media also have the function of removing burrs. Some small burrs and sharp teeth on the edges of parts and hole walls can be chamfered and flattened by scraping with stainless steel media with sharp corners or edges to achieve the effect of removing burrs.

    2.1 Turning tool marks removing. This process is similar to deburring. The turning tool marks left after the machining of parts can be removed by the impact and scraping of stainless steel media.

    2.2 Polishing. The main function of stainless steel media is to brighten the surface of product workpieces. Through the tumbling and rotating motion of the machine, the high density stainless steel media impacts the surface of the part, changing the metallographic structure of the metal surface layer. The arrangement of the metal grains is reorganized to form a dense layer, which enhances the diffuse reflection of light, making the surface Becomes shiny and sparkling, achieving a near-mirror polished effect.

    2.3 Degreasing. Through the combined use of stainless steel media and cleaning liquid, dust, sludge, and grease on the internal and external surfaces of parts can be removed. Manual cleaning of oil stains is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. Using a tumbling finishing machine and stainless steel media for cleaning can improve the brightness and gloss of the surface of the parts while removing oil and stains. It is a process that gets twice the result with half the effort.

  • 6. Which parts can be polished with stainless steel media?
  • If your product parts are made of metal and have a hardness equal to or less than 304/302 stainless steel, then polishing with stainless steel media is the best choice. While polishing, stainless steel media can also remove surface oxide scale, turning tool marks and other defects on brass, copper, aluminum, zinc and other products.
  • 7. How do stainless steel media polish product parts?
  • Put the stainless steel media into the working barrel of the finishing polishing machine, add water and an appropriate amount of polishing liquid. After the machine is started, the stainless steel media and the workpiece will have a tumbling and rotating motion in the machine. The abrasive media and the parts rub against each other, which will cause the surface to change. Scrape off the scale, burrs, residue, etc. In addition, stainless steel media have an impact force on the parts, which will change the grain structure arrangement on the surface of the parts, forming a dense layer and achieving a shiny surface effect.
  • 8. What is the best stainless steel media?
  • The best stainless steel media should look like this:
    Fully self-grinding, the curved surface is round and smooth, and the cut surface is neat and straight.

  • 9. Which finishing and polishing machine is suitable forv stainless steel media?
  • ShineTec recommends using a vibratory polishing machine with stainless steel media for polishing. The reasons are as follows:

    9.1 To achieve a good polishing effect with stainless steel media, the product parts need to be put into as much tumbling media as possible. The vibratory finishing machine can be equipped with a high-power vibration motor and a large-capacity working chamber to obtain a larger amplitude, allowing the workpiece to fully tumble in the machine and collide with the abrasive media to obtain a better surface effect.

    9.2 Because the size of the centrifugal barrel is limited, the centrifugal barrel finishing machine has a small loading capacity of tumbling media and is not very efficient. Moreover, due to the large proportion of stainless steel media, the centrifugal force generated when the barrel is loaded with abrasive media and rotates at high speed will increase many times, which greatly exceeds the design strength of the centrifugal barrel finishing machine and creates potential safety risks.

    9.3 The barrel of the centrifugal disc finishing machine also does not meet the capacity requirements compared to the vibrating finishing machine. If it is operated at full load, it will greatly exceed the design strength of the machine, and it is not suitable to use stainless steel media to polish product parts.

    9.4 The polishing efficiency of the tumbling barrel finishing machine is too slow, and the design capability of the machine itself is not suitable for heavy-duty use, and it is not suitable for polishing with stainless steel media.

    vibratory polishing of stainless steel media
  • 10. What are the benefits of polishing with stainless steel media?
  • If you don’t know how to improve the surface gloss and brightness of metal product parts and workpieces, then using stainless steel media for tumbling and polishing is the best polishing process and method.

    10.1 High polishing efficiency. Compared with polishing media such as high-alumina porcelain media, high-density porcelain media, and zirconia balls, stainless steel media have the highest specific density (7.8 g/cm3) and can obtain the highest brightness in the shortest time.

    10.2 High cleaning efficiency. Stainless steel media have very little wear and do not pollute the surface structure of metal product parts. With the assistance of cleaning agents and brighteners, they can fully clean away oil, sludge, and impurities on the surface of workpieces automatically, in large quantities, quickly, and solve the problem of manual cleaning. Time-consuming and labor-intensive problem.

    10.3 Non-destructive polishing. 不Stainless steel media have no cutting force, will not finish the surface with great force, and will not affect the dimensional accuracy of the product. It is a non-destructive polishing process.

    10.4 Extra long service life. Stainless steel media have almost no wear, and a single purchase can last almost a lifetime. There is almost no wear cost, which can greatly reduce your direct polishing costs.

    10.5 Easy to use. Ceramic polishing media will stick to each other, break, and become dirty after use. They need to be fully self-polished and cleaned before they can be used again. There are no breakage or bonding issues with the stainless steel media. After polishing, you only need to simply rinse it with water and it can be used continuously again.
  • 11. Do stainless steel media require maintenance for daily use?
  • Good maintenance habits can extend the service life of stainless steel media. Although stainless steel media is an tumbling polishing media that is easy to use and store, its service life will be accelerated if not properly maintained.

    11.1 Correct usage. After polishing, if it is not used for a long time, you need to rinse the stainless steel media with water and dry it before storing it.

    11.2 Proper mixing ratio of stainless steel media, product parts and polishing liquid. A corresponding ratio needs to be maintained among the above three. In order to save procurement costs, many people want to use as little stainless steel media as possible and put more product workpieces. However, too little abrasives will cause the product parts to collide with each other during polishing or the workpieces to directly scratch the working chamber wall of the machine and damage the lining PU. This results in reduced polishing efficiency, reduced polishing quality and possible damage to product parts and machines.

    11.3 Replacement of damaged stainless steel media. Ensure that every one of stainless steel media in the machine is intact. If some of the media are deformed or damaged, the damaged media must be replaced immediately. The damaged media surface will produce cracks, edges, and cutting edges. These parts will affect the surface effect of product parts during polishing, and even damage the product.

  • 12. In which industries can stainless steel media be used for product parts and workpieces?
  • Stainless steel abrasives can be used for finishing and polishing metal parts or workpieces in most industries.

    12.1 Professional finishing and polishing processing job shop. Stainless steel media are the most cost-effective tumbling media in the polishing process of polishing job shop. There is no wear on the abrasive, and only a small amount of chemical polishing liquid needs to be added for each processing to complete the polishing process. This abrasive media is available in many polishing processing job shop.

    12.2 Jewelry industry. After long-term storage or use, the surface of jewelry will produce an oxide layer, which will darken and turn black. Polishing with stainless steel media can restore jewelry to its original luster.

    12.3 Auto parts industry. The auto parts industry is an area where stainless steel media are widely used. Includes deburring and polishing applications. Such as engine cylinder heads, pistons, motorcycle wheels, mufflers, fasteners, gears and other products. It also has a good polishing effect on the refurbishing of some forged or cast auto parts.

    12.4 Aerospace and defense fields. The strength and reliability of product parts in the aerospace and defense fields are the most critical indicators. The impact of stainless steel media during the polishing process can increase the strength of the product surface and produce a uniform surface polishing effect.

    12.5 Medical equipment and devices. Product parts for the medical device and device industry must be guaranteed to be zero-defect. After metal parts are polished with stainless steel media, the strength and surface quality of the product will be improved. For example, titanium, chromium, stainless steel, cobalt and other materials and their alloy products are very suitable for polishing and brightening with stainless steel media.

    12.6 Motorcycle Accessories. Motorcycle accessories require high-quality products and glossy product surface quality. Using stainless steel media for polishing can quickly achieve satisfactory polishing results.
  • 13. What are the benefits of using stainless steel media for tumbling polishing?

It can completely remove the oxide layer on the surface, eliminate cracks and other defects on the surface of parts that are easily affected by oxidation, and improve the overall corrosion resistance.

    13.2 Improves strain hardening of parts. After tumbling finishing and polishing with stainless steel media, the surface hardness of the parts can be increased. Compared with unpolished parts, the surface hardness can be increased by 50-100%.

    13.3 Brightening and burnishing effect. Stainless steel media can not only improve the strength of parts, but also improve the brightness and gloss of the product surface. After the fine polishing process, it can achieve an effect close to mirror polishing.

  • 14. How long is the service life of stainless steel media?
  • If you take appropriate daily maintenance measures, you can use it for a long time. Of course, poor usage habits will definitely reduce the use time of stainless steel media. In comparison, compared to porcelain polishing media, its service life is far longer than other abrasive media.
  • 15. Can brass parts be polished with stainless steel media?
  • Yes, brass parts can be polished with stainless steel media.
  • 16. Can nickel-plated metal parts be polished with stainless steel media?
  • Yes, stainless steel media can be used to polish nickel plated metal parts. However, the polishing time needs to be shortened to 40-60% of the ordinary polishing time.
  • 17. Can stainless steel media be used for dry and wet finishing?
  • Stainless steel media cannot be used for dry polishing. During the polishing process of product parts, metal shavings, oil stains and other impurities will be produced. If these sludge is not cleaned during the finishing process, it will adhere to the surface of the product to form a layer of oil stains, making the parts black and dull. The result is that the workpiece will become darker. The darker you throw it, the brighter it will never be.
  • 18. Do stainless steel media need to be dried when stored?
  • If you need to store it for a long period of time, such as months or years, you need to let the stainless steel media dry before packaging and storage. If it is for a short period of time, it is not necessary because stainless steel itself is rust-proof and anti-corrosion.
  • 19. Will stainless steel media damage my parts?
  • As long as the proper matching ratio of media, water, and polishing liquid is maintained during the polishing process, and the size of the media matches the size of the parts, there will be no damage.
  • 20. Do stainless steel media require special lubrication?
  • Unnecessary. When polishing with stainless steel media, you only need to add clean water and an appropriate amount of polishing liquid. There is no need to add external lubricating grease and other substances.
  • 21. Are stainless steel media magnetic?
  • Yes, stainless steel media are weakly magnetic. You can use this feature to use magnets to collect media scattered on the floor around the machine during the polishing process.
  • 22. What are the proportions of media, parts, and water when polishing with stainless steel media?
  • Generally we recommend this matching rate:

    Media : Parts : Water = 3 : 1 : 2

  • 23. Where should stainless steel media be placed when stored?
  • Please place stainless steel media in a dry, clean indoor space. Although stainless steel media themselves are anti-corrosive and anti-rust, low-grade materials will also rust if they are exposed to humid, acidic and alkaline environments for a long time.
  • 24. How long does it usually take to polish with stainless steel media?
  • It usually takes about 30 minutes to polish with stainless steel media. If the surface brightness does not improve significantly after more than 1 hour, extending the polishing time will have no effect.
  • 25. Can jewelry be polished with stainless steel media?
  • Yes, jewelry can be polished with stainless steel media.
  • 26. Why does the surface of the part become darker and lose its luster after being polished with stainless steel media?
  • When polishing with stainless steel media, it is found that the surface of the part becomes black and dark because the oil on the surface of the media or the carbon in the impurities is deposited on the surface of the product. The solution is to clean the stainless steel media with cleaning liquid before polishing.
  • 27. Which stainless steel media should I buy?
  • 27.1 Choose the appropriate stainless steel media according to the shape and size of your product parts and workpieces. Please do not use large-sized media to polish small-sized parts to avoid damage. If you use small-sized media to polish large-sized parts, it will take more man-hours and have a big impact on the service life of the media.

    27.2 Make sure that the internal and external surfaces of your parts, as well as holes, gaps, corners, etc., can be polished with stainless steel media.

    27.3 According to the actual usage environment of your product. If your use environment contains acid and alkaline substances, you need to choose high-grade stainless steel media. The following is the corrosion resistance of various grades of stainless steel media:

    440C < 420 < 302 < 304 < 316
  • 28. Why do my product parts turn black after being polished with stainless steel media?
  • The main reason is that the stainless steel media needs to be pre-cleaned before polishing. If there are some residual brighteners, sludge, debris and other impurities attached to the media surface after the last polishing, polishing again will contaminate your product parts with these impurities, causing the product surface to turn black.
  • 29. Do stainless steel media need to be cleaned before each use?
  • We recommend cleaning stainless steel media once before use. This ensures that the surface of the part will not turn black or dull during the polishing process.
  • 30. How much stainless steel media is required to complete a polishing process?
  • Depending on the machine capacity used. It is recommended that the total volume of materials does not exceed 2/3 of the working chamber.
    The general ratio of parts to media is 1:3, and this ratio can also be adjusted according to the shape and size of the workpiece.

  • 31. What is the best machine for polishing with stainless steel media?
  • We recommend using a vibratory polishing machine to polish with stainless steel media. The advantages are: easy to load and unload, you can check the polishing effect at any time, large loading capacity, and simple to use.
  • 32. Do stainless steel media need rust inhibitors?
  • Unnecessary. Because stainless steel media are made of anti-corrosion and anti-rust stainless steel materials, there is no need to add additional anti-rust liquid.
  • 33. Can other types of finishing machines be polished with stainless steel media?
  • Centrifugal disc finishing machines, centrifugal barrel finishing machines, and barrel tumbling finishing machines can all use stainless steel media for polishing. It’s just that other machines need to reduce the loading of media when polishing. Generally, the amount of media is reduced by half compared to using porcelain polishing media.
    tumbling polishing, brightening with stainless steel media
  • 34. Is polishing with stainless steel media faster than using other polishing media?
  • Yes, because the density of stainless steel media exceeds that of porcelain polishing media, it is easier to obtain a bright surface effect in a shorter time.
  • 35. Can plastic parts and workpieces be polished with stainless steel media?
  • No. The material of plastic products is not suitable for deburring and polishing with stainless steel media. You can use ceramic deburring media or resin media to remove burrs, and use brightening media to polish the brightness.
  • 36. What is the price of stainless steel media?
  • The price of stainless steel media varies according to grade, shape, and size. The larger the size, the lower the price. Of course, its price will be much higher than tumbling media such as brown corundum ceramic media, white corundum ceramic media, and silicon carbide ceramic media. However, in terms of service life, the cost of using stainless steel media is far lower than that of other abrasive media.
