A metals fabricator recently purchased a vibratory bowl from Precision Finishing so that they can tumble parts in-house. This was a new process for them, and they realized that they lacked the expertise to run this efficiently.
Precision Finishing Lab For Sample Processing
The fabricator sent us a representative quantity of a part to tumble in Precision Finishing’s lab so that we could develop a process for them to use with their machine. A process was developed for the part that included:
- The selection and application of the shape, size and composition of media
- The most effective CHEMTROL product to use
We assisted the customer in implementing the accepted process in their machine. They were very pleased with the results and have decided to send additional parts to us for process development. Their goal is when they work down existing inventory they want to tumble finish all of their parts and have Precision Finishing assist them in developing the most cost effective process for these parts. The purchase of an additional bowl has now become a probability.
The main benefit of sample processing is that Precision Finishing Inc. will, at no charge, develop a tumbling process for a customer, specific to the part they sent to us. Then, the customer can either have us run production for them—or they can implement the process in their machine.
