Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing for Firearm Manufacturers

Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing for Firearm Manufacturers

Since the discovery of gunpowder, people have been designing and building all makes and models of firearms. What started out as a simple means of igniting the powder to propel the projectile through the barrel has evolved into a set of high precision set of manufactured firearm components. The improved fit and finish has allowed for the increased reliability and performance of today’s precision firearm components and overall finished product.

Mass Finishing Applications

Mass Finishing Applications

The applications list shown below was compiled by a major OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) of finishing equipment. As you can see by examining some of the commercial applications listed, a lot more goes on in mass finishing than just simple deburring. These applications say as much about the ingenuity of the people who developed them as it does about the versatility of the various processes involved.
