Dry vibratory polishing

Vibration of metal parts

CONIEX offers vibrators, also known as vibrating drums, for dry vibrating of metal parts. We are pioneers in the use of dry vibration for polishing and finishing parts. A vibratory drum is much more efficient than other solutions on the market, reducing production costs while achieving higher productivity and finish quality.

VIBRATING DRUM FOR SURFACE FINISHING OF PARTS

Metal parts vibratory grinding is used for polishing and sanding metal parts. Vibratory polishing is necessary when the part has a production defect, such as burrs, or some other type of irregularity or imperfection. Vibrofinishing is also used for finishing and treatment of other types of materials.

Our vibro-polishing machines allow the vibration polishing process to be carried out dry, without the use of water or acids, which means that no residues are generated during the process.

The vibrating bass drum is an ideal technology when small parts have to be processed in large quantities. They are also very efficient for parts with irregular shapes and difficult access.

DRY VIBRATION FOR FINISHING OF METAL PARTS AND SURFACES

Dry vibration is the revolution that allows companies to meet the goal of increasing productivity, simplifying processes and saving costs, results that have proven to be spectacular in all applied fields. In addition, the process represents a significant improvement in the surface quality of the parts in a shorter time and at lower cost.

With such a vibrating drum, the waste generated during the vibration process is drastically reduced and the consumption of water and chemicals is completely eliminated, as well as the costly processes of purification and waste disposal.

Main benefits of dry vibratory polishing:

  • Vibration without water or chemicals
  • 40 to 85% cost reduction
  • Faster processing, up to 120% faster
  • Better surface validation
  • Drastic waste reduction
  • Unique technology

For the dry vibration process, using ECOS abrasives does not always require a new installation, but it is sufficient to equip the existing vibro with a lid and a vacuum cleaner specially designed to collect the dust generated during the process.

This system allows the effective polishing, finishing and deburring of any type of material, metallic and non-metallic, and in particular, all metals that oxidize easily with water, such as iron, steel and zinc alloys, as well as brass and aluminum.

In addition, dry processes are used to obtain:

  • Perfectly dry parts and, in the case of steel parts, ready for storage without the need for passivation.
  • Total absence of mud.
  • The dust generated during the process is 10 times less than the amount of sludge produced during the wet vibration process.
  • Reduction of polishing costs from 30% to 150%, depending on the parts treated.
  • Drastic reduction of abrasive consumption compared to the wet process.
  • Reduction of waste disposal costs.

Therefore, we invite you to learn more about this technology from CONIEX, your specialist in surface treatments.

LABORATORY TESTS FOR VIBRATION

CONIEX’s vibration laboratory has all types of vibrating equipment, circular, rectangular, turbo, with more than 250 references of ceramic, porcelain, polyester or ureic abrasives, steel balls as well as our own range of chemical products specifically designed for vibration. In our facilities, both conventional wet processes and our exclusive dry processes can be carried out without the presence of water or chemicals.

Depending on the needs and the objective result in surface treatment, the following processes are carried out:

  • Deburring
  • Smoothing
  • Radio creation
  • Polishing
  • Polishing
  • Precision finishing
  • Drying with sawdust
  • Centrifugal drying

Once the tests have been carried out, the treated samples are returned for physical evaluation and a complete report is delivered with:

  • Photographs of the results, general and microscopic.
  • RA Roughness measurements, before and after the process.
  • Abrasives used, material, abrasiveness, dimension, geometry and consumption.
  • Chemicals used, reference, chemical characteristics and consumption.
  • Summary of times and general process parameters.

Since wet vibration processes generate aqueous residues, the type of treatment for the residues produced in the future process is also analyzed and designed during the tests, either by physical-chemical methods, electrocoagulation, or evaporation.
