Small Ceramic Tumbling Media (Straight Cut Tristar)
We can also make other size small ceramic tumbling media that not show in the table, so please contact us to get detail information
1. Why Straight Cut Ceramic Tumbling Media?
The straight cut tri-star media is a variation of straight cut triangle ceramic media. And it has wide application for parts with special geometry and surface contour. In addition, when it made into smaller size, it can enter into tiny steps and corners, and reach into slots and holes.
An example is mobile phone accessory as it have very small size steps and holes. A small ceramic tumbling media is selected with special feature. So we can finish all surface of the delicate parts. Besides, parts and media should have significant difference in size. Then we can make easier separation.
2. General Properties
2.1 Features of Ceramic Media
- Engineering use ceramic media mostly metal components deburring and descaling
- Vibratory deburring media have varieties of different size and shape
- Vibratory deburring media have wide application rage. It suitable for vibratory finishing machinery and most other surface finishing machine.
2.2 Ceramic media Composition
Manufacturers make ceramic media with mixture of several mineral materials. These materials including: abrasive grit, clay, feldspar and sand. Later, theses material mixed homogeneously and stirring machine with constant water dosing. After that, a vacuum compressor removes void in the material and make it a solid and rigid material before drying and baking.
First of all, ceramic media are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Also, engineer selects right grade of abrasive grit, the proportion of abrasive to binder, and the most suitable binder. All these factors contribute to the ceramic media performance. As a result, the right selection of media meet requirement of certain parts and application.
While abrasive grit cut material from parts, the binder acts as a burnishing surface, and this works against rapid cutting.
