High-Speed Dry Spindle Deburring and Finishing of Complex Part Shapes

High-Speed Dry Spindle Deburring and Finishing of Complex Part Shapes

Turbo-Abrasive Machining (also referred to as Turbo-Finish) is a mechanical deburring and finishing method originally developed to automate edge finishing procedures on complex rotationally oriented and symmetrical aerospace engine components. Since its inception this method of utilizing fluidized abrasive materials has facilitated significant reductions in the amount of manual intervention required to deburr large components.
