Ceramic Vibratory Media (Straight Cut Ellipse)
Ellipse ceramic vibratory media combine the finishing action of a flat shape with the following action of a cylindrical shape. Therefore, this shape workout especially effective on concave surfaces.
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 Ellipse Shape Media?
The ellipse shape media with narrow geometry, is good to enter into parts with narrow opening.
From above photo you can see: for gear parts grinding, cylinder shape media is not the good choice. Because there is a gap leave between media and tooth flanks just under media curved area.
Comparatively, a ellipse shape tumbling media can fit better into gear tooth flanks. As a result, it almost leave no gap and unpolished area.
2. General Properties
2.1 Features of Ceramic vibratory 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 vibratory Media Composition
Manufacturers make ceramic abrasive 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 abrasive 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.
