Vibratory & Centrifugal Deburring

Vibratory and Centrifugal Deburring

Medical devices made of metallic materials are often subjected to deburring to remove the slightest imperfection. Norwood Medical employs both vibratory deburring and high-speed centrifugal deburring as finishing methods for our customers’ parts. With the ability to debur, clean and brighten the entire surface of a component, these manufacturing processes are ideal for finishing intricate medical devices.

Vibratory deburring
Vibratory deburring is a batch-type operation whereby specially shaped pellets of media and the components are placed into a vibratory tumbler. This process is designed to finish a large quantity of devices at the same time to provide a beautiful finish to the manufactured parts.

High-speed centrifugal deburring
Another process suited for finishing small parts and components is centrifugal deburring. In a centrifugal barrel machine, several cylindrical containers are mounted to a rotating base. The base rotates in one direction and the barrels rotate in the opposite direction, generating enough force to deburr parts quickly and gently enough for critical small medical components.
