The working principle of air-blasting consists of projecting or shooting an abrasive media against the parts. Choosing the right abrasive and process conditions understanding the target surface finish requirements is of maximum importance.
Tumbling, also referred to as “rotary vibration” or “vibration” is the mechanical process consisting of submerging the pieces inside a container with selected abrasive media(s) to polish and finish the parts as required. Main benefits are: a controlled reduction of the surface roughness and improved touch and aesthetics.
abrast media shot
Abrast Media Shot is a unique process that combines 3 steps in 1, cleaning, surfacing and finishing the parts eventually avoiding dyeing. The process can process a full MJF printing job within 5 minutes. The working principle consists of projecting abrasive media at high energy ranges and has a bespoke proprietary triple air /dust / media filtration system that completely eliminates the printing powder.
