Vibratory Troughs Finishing Machines

Perfect for larger, longer and irregular-shaped components, vibratory trough machines are offered in various standard sizes and a choice of combination of lengths and widths. Extremely versatile, these machines have been built to suit various applications: deburring, descaling, radiusing, cleaning, polishing and surface improvement. Boasting a high design and build standard the trough machines are subject to continuous development to ensure they meet even the most challenging finishing applications. Custom sizes/configurations to meet unusual applications are also available.

vibratory Troughs finishing machine

Features

Drive system

The powerful, heavy-duty work chamber has an extended shaft on both sides and a foot mounted vibratory motor to impart powerful and uniform vibrations to the mass in the trough. The vibrations drive the mass in a linear/spiral path causing the media to be continuously in contact with the components, providing effective processing to finish the components in the shortest time.

The heart of the machine, the vibratory motor is designed to meet the conditions, with special castings and bearings making them mechanically robust and reliable.

Process Chamber

Stress relieved to improve life, the internal chamber has a specially designed “U” section to subject the components to an effective tumbling action and ensure efficient process times. Designed for ease of access the chambers offer the flexibility to process large or irregular components and are easily customised

Part Fixture

For processing multiple sensitive parts, special fixtures are available to mount the components and avoid part-on-part process and protects them from coming into contact with the side walls of the process.

Divider Plates

Efficient batch processing of precision, or delicate, components is possible with the option of fully polyurethane coated plates to sub-divide the work chamber. The divider plate fixture system is designed to offer flexibility in changing the chamber size to suit the part geometry.

Vibratory Troughs - Capacity from 28 - 60 Litres

Vibratory Troughs - HT Series

A very user friendly kit for deburring or burnishing operations, these machines are ideally suited for small batch works and delicate components, housing a work chamber which is polyurethane lined and working on the same principle as the larger trough machines. Powered with a standard 16A socket, single phase, 240V AC supply and mounted on castor wheels, the machines can be moved with ease. They have their own recirculating tank with pump for dosing the mixture of water and compound for the process, and are relatively quiet.

Vibratory Troughs - Capacity from 85 - 1,417 Litres

Vibratory Troughs - TU Series

Designed to be simple to operate and highly efficient, these Trough Finishing Machines are suitable for large and small batches of components where manual separation is mandatory. Featuring a single speed motor as standard, adjustable flyweights transfer the optimum amount of energy to produce the required finish in the optimum time. Several process chambers can be created in the rectangular, polyurethane lined, process chamber to suit different part sizes and multiple media types.
