Surface Finishing AM or 3D Metal Printed Parts with Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing

Surface Finishing AM or 3D Metal Printed Parts with Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing

Centrifugal Isotropic Finishing has been shown to be useful in reducing the rough surfaces common to 3D printed parts.  Below is an example of surface finishes that can be achieved with the method.  The slides provide profilomic and areal data tabulated by Jack Clark, President of Surface Analytics.  This work was performed by Jack for a study being made by SME’s Machining/Material Removal Technical Community.  The slides show surface readings from a part pictured above as printed, and then following centrifugal isotropic finishing.  The measurements were made in both 2D and 3D.  To summarize, in this test, surface roughness was reduced from 356.24µin Ra. to 12.06µin Ra.

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.

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.
