CENTRIFUGAL BARREL HIGH ENERGY
HIGH SPEED AND VERSATILE FOR ANY FINISHING APPLICATION
HOW IT WORKS
MFI’s HZ Series Centrifugal Barrel finishing machines provide the most economical, high-speed finishing available. HZ machines operate on the “ferris wheel” principle with a 1:1 ratio of barrel rotation to turret rotation. Four barrels are mounted at the periphery of a large turret. Each barrel is loaded to approximately 50 - 80% full, with media, parts, and water. During operation, rotation of the turret creates force on the media and parts inside each barrel. This force reduces the cycle time needed to complete the finishing of the parts by up to a factor of 30 over conventional vibratory and barrel finishing.
