The Versa-Flow Spin-Finish machine is a very high energy finishing system.
The machine uses a spinning tub of media that is either a very aggressive abrasive to remove heavy burrs from a work piece…or a very fine wet or dry polishing media for producing a very high color, or a low ra surface finish. Parts that are processed in the Spin-Finish are normally parts that: cannot have part-on-part contact; are high value parts; or where a lean manufacturing single part flow is needed.
The tub revolves at a range of speeds dictated by the need of aggression, the need of a more gentle action, or a light slurry. As the tub spins, it creates centrifugal energy and surface feet. The combination of the two create a dramatic combination of forces on the surface of the work-piece which is very effective in removing burrs and producing very low Ra surfaces. The centrifugal force produced by the spinning tub and weight of the media provides a form fitting abrasive mass moving around the work-piece.
How Versa-Flow Spin-Finish Operates:
-Parts are fixed using collets or special tooling on the spindle.
-Rotating spindle tilts parts into rotating mass/slurry.
-Part presentation to the mass is critical.
-Once process is complete, the part tilts out of the tub.
