Vibratory finishing machines can separate parts and media in batch processing. These machines can be fitted with many different options to optimize the process, including an internal separation device, variable-speed control units, noise cover, and PLC controls. These machines can be manually operated or integrated into a production line. These machines are particularly useful for finishing small and medium-sized parts.

The vibratory drive system in these machines creates oscillating motion within the processing bowl. This movement removes materials that adhere to the edges of metal workpieces. It also helps to remove any residual machine lines left over from previous processing. Parts and media become entangled with each other, and the relative motion between them is responsible for removing material and giving the part its desired isotropic surface finish.
Vibration finishing machines are used to achieve various levels of finish, from simple deburring to high-gloss polishing. Because the grinding material fits the shape of the workpiece, the vibratory action does not leave any deep abrasions on the material. This process also eliminates the need for costly manual finishing operations.
Vibration finishing can be performed on parts made from metal, plastic, or composite materials. Plastic media is lighter than steel and ceramic and can be used on parts with threads. These materials are also less abrasive and are suitable for mild cutting and light finishing. In addition, these machines can be fully automated and can process many parts at one time. They are also capable of deburring, burnishing, and pre-coating parts.
