Mass finishing equipment..
Wednesday, July 8, 2015
Last week our new vibro finishing equipment arrived at PMS.
The equipment will polish, deburr, remove flash from our zinc die-castings and wash with detergent before finally drying ready for delivery to the customer. This will enable us to provide very high quality and highly polished cast components with no damage caused by part-on-part contact.
We use a variety of grinding media in a ratio of 4:1 to polish, deburr & remove flash. the result is very high quality and highly polished cast components
A Highend Disc System
A Large Rotary Vibrator (which can hold a tonne of media)
A Belt Dryer
In preparation, Richard Moore and Terry Mullins from PMS Diecasting attended a training course, delivered by Rosler UK, about getting the best from your equipment which included selecting the correct grinding media and compound for the individual part that requires mass finishing. Rosler UK also talked about how to clean effluent water which is an undesirable by-product of this process. PMS Diecasting take environmental impact very seriously and we operate an Environmental Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO 14001:2004
