Wet-Dry Vibratory Passivation of Heat-Treated Parts in One Machine

White Paper - Wet-Dry Vibratory Passivation of Heat-Treated Parts in One Machine

CLM Vibetech was approached by a potential customer to design and build a vibratory bowl finisher for the removal of heat-treat scale from the parts they manufacture. The process parameters required four key steps: 1) Removal of the heat-treat scale from the surface of the parts; 2) Burnish and clean the surface after passivation; 3) Rinse; and 4) Dry. Conventional wisdom would suggest that two machines be used for the process: one machine for the “wet” steps 1 through 3, and a second machine for drying the parts.
