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.
