Solve Common Vibratory Finishing Issues with Simple Maintenance Tips

Are you encountering problems with your vibratory finishing process? We're here to help! In our comprehensive 3-minute video, our experts discuss the most common vibratory finishing challenges and reveal how to address them with straightforward maintenance techniques. By following these tips, you can enhance your vibratory finishing process and achieve consistent, high-quality results.

The first issue we address in the video is excessive foam production. Often, operators may notice an abundance of foam accumulating in the machine over time. Intuitively, they might think that reducing the amount of compound or liquid soap can solve this problem. However, doing so can actually exacerbate the issue, leading to corrosion and inconsistent finishes.

In our video, we demonstrate the correct way to tackle foam and high water levels. We guide you through the process of clearing the media and the drain holes, checking the drain hose, and ensuring all connections are clean and secure. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your machine is ready for operation once again.

Another prevalent challenge is damaged parts or ineffective unloading across the separation system. This issue often arises due to media wear and reduced media levels. Our experts explain the importance of maintaining adequate media levels in your finishing equipment to prevent parts from being damaged and ensure a smooth, efficient process.

In the video, we demonstrate the ideal media level for your finishing equipment, which should be maintained within an inch or two of the lip of the machine or the unload system. By keeping an eye on media levels and topping up as necessary, you can avoid many common vibratory finishing issues.
