Not all burrs are created equal.  Some burrs are heavily rooted and some materials have a measure of plasticity.  These kinds of materials can pose a severe burr removal challenge for conventional mass finishing systems and require use of a high intensity and high energy finishing process such as centrifugal barrel finishing.   SEE    https://dryfinish.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/centrifugal-barrel-finishing-machinery/    Contrast the burr (edge) and surface condition of the top picture (finished) with that of the picture of the part prior to centrifugal finishing (bottom picture)

    1. Two steps: 20 minutes with a high density plastic media in, and 20 minutes in a dry polishing cob. It would be very difficult to duplicate this in a vibratory machine. Just not enough force.
