Tumbler Media (Cylinder Wedge Shape)
Cylinders Tumbler Media that are cut into wedge shapes. And the special shapes make it popular among cones, plain cylinders, and triangles in many applications. Therefore, manufacturers use several names for these shapes including double cut cylinder, “V”-cut cylinders and tri-cylinders.
We can also make other size ceramic tumbling media that not show in the table, so please contact us to get detail information
1. Why Cylinder Wedge Tumbler Media?
Cylinder Wedge media is a superior combination of the cylinder shape and planar surface contact area. Therefore, it offers maximum cutting and deburring performance without lodging issue. Comparatively, cylinder wedge is popular shape among other ceramic media.
Surgical instrument prefers to use cylinder wedge shape media. For example, forceps and Scissors have the rings and plain surface. As a result, rings (inner holes) require cylinder shape to deburr and other planar surfaces need Cylinder wedge plain surface to smooth.
2. General Properties
2.1 Features of Ceramic Media
- Engineering use Ceramic tumbling media mostly metal components deburring and cutting
- Ceramic abrasive media have varieties from Medium to Fast cutting
- Ceramic abrasive 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 tumbler media with a 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 abrasive media are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Also, the engineer selects the right grade of abrasive grit, the proportion of abrasive to the binder, and the most suitable binder. All these factors contribute to the ceramic media performance. As a result, the right selection of media meets the 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.
