Over the years, mechanical surface finishing has evolved from a simple deburring method into a sophisticated technology covering a broad range of industries and applications. Here are just a few examples of “high-tech” mechanical finishing applications:

  • Grinding and polishing of medical implants, such as artificial knees, hips, ankles, etc. In the medical implant industry, special mass-finishing processes have been replacing robotic grinding and buffing systems (Fig. 1)
  • Superfinishing of automotive gears down to a surface roughness of <2 (0.05 μm) to increase the life of power trains, reduce running noise, and, at times of high fuel cost, reduce the weight of these components without jeopardizing their reliability (Fig. 2)
  • Surface finishing of aero-engine components, such as turbine blades, blisks, turbine disks, vanes, etc. In combination with shot peening, mass finishing processes reduce the “maximum exhaust gas temperature” (MEGT) and increase the time intervals between engine overhauls. Better surface finishing of turbine blades also increases the acceleration and compression of the air mass flow in turbines, resulting in lower fuel consumption—an invaluable technical benefit with today’s high cost of kerosene (Fig. 3).

Unfortunately, mechanical surface finishing is a largely empirical process and, for this reason, it is one of the least understood and appreciated manufacturing technologies. The intention of this article is to provide a better understanding of mechanical surface finishing with particular emphasis on the role of the finishing

Polishing with Finishing Machines for Pots and Pans

Mechanical finishing refers to an operation that alters the surface of a substrate by physical means such as polishing and buffing. Polishing plays a vital role in the development of a quality product. The term polishing is not to be confused with buffing. The definition of polishing is surface enhancement by means of metal removal and is generally done by an abrasive belt, grinding wheel, setup wheel, and other abrasive media.

A definite coarse line pattern remains after such a polishing operation. This polishing effect removes large amounts of metal from a particular surface. Buffing is the processing of a metal surface to give a specific or desired finish. The range is from semi-bright to mirror bright or high luster.

Polishing refers to an abrading operation that follows grinding and precedes buffing. The two main reasons for polishing are to remove considerable amounts of metal or non metallics and smooth a particular surface. This operation is usually followed by buffing to refine a metallic or nonmetallic surface

Polishing Wheels for Finishing Machines for Pots and Pans

Polishing wheels can be made up of a different variety of substrates such as muslin, canvas, felt, and leather. Cotton fabric wheels as a class are the most commonly used medium for general all-around polishing due to their versatility and relatively modest cost. Polishing wheels can have a hard consistency, such as canvas disks, or a soft consistency, such as muslin, sewn together.

The most popular wheels are composed of sewn sections of muslin disks held together by adhesives. The types of adhesives used include those with a base of silicate of soda and the animal-hide glue type. Felt wheels are available in hard densities to ultrasoft densities. The outside periphery or face of the wheel must be kept true and be absolutely uniform in density over its entire surface. Felt wheels can be easily contoured to fit irregularly shaped dimensions.

Felt wheels are generally restricted to use with finer abrasive grain sizes. In general, the more rigid polishing wheels are indicated where there is either a need for rapid metal removal or where there are no contours and a flat surface is to be maintained. Conversely, the softer types with flexibility do not remove metal at such a high rate. In addition to polishing wheels, precoated abrasive belts can be obtained in any grit size and are ready for polishing operations.

Metallic and nonmetallic articles are polished on such belts running over a cushioned contact wheel with the proper tension being put on them by means of a back stand idler. Where a wet polishing operation is desired, the use of abrasive belts in wet operations needs to have a synthetic adhesive holding the abrasive particles to the belt backing.
This synthetic adhesive must have a waterproof characteristic. When determining the belt’s grit size, the condition of the surface is what will
dictate the aggressiveness of a belt. The too-aggressive belt can put in larger imperfections than those initially on the surface.
