Inovatec MachineryThe Pioneer in Small Parts Deburring Machine Manufacturing
If there is one series of mass finishing machines that has gained popularity all over the world, that would be the vibratory machines from Inovatec. These are the most successful and most effective machines you can get your hands on.
When it comes to small parts deburring, you have to invest in a good quality vibratory machine in order to get the best results.
Centrifugal disc finishers are a wonder of modern science. It was unimaginable that a deburring cycle can be done in such a short time due to their fast processing speed. These machines are perfect for deburring small parts. Centrifugal machines utilize the centrifugal force in order to create friction between the parts and the media.
Desktop vibratory tumblers are the perfect solution for small and medium workshops. Also, they are a great choice to deburr small and medium parts. The bowls are small, so they can fit anywhere in the workshop.
It’s very similar to centrifugal disc finishers, but it uses a barrel to hold the parts and the media. It’s an awesome choice if your primary goal is to deburr small parts and round the edges.
This one of the most popular machines from Inovatec. It’s a vibratory mass finishing machine with all the modern features as well as fitting options included. It’s economic, and it can deburr small parts in a reasonable time.
This is the oldest machine used for mass finishing parts. It has a barrel where the parts and the media are held. It rotates very slowly to deburr and round the edges. It’s a very cost-effective solution if you don’t have a narrow deadline.
This is another masterpiece from Inovatec where you can deburr geometrically small complex parts. You can deburr parts in batches since it has a chamber separator option to divide the chambers into small compartments.
Different Types of Small Parts Deburring
Zinc is a relatively soft metal. So, you have to be careful to not damage the surface while performing a deburring cycle.
You should use the rotary barrel tumbler as the small parts deburring machine in this case. Rotary barrel tumblers are great for soft metals as it doesn’t have any sudden motions that can damage the parts.
Silver is a soft metal as well. But it’s not as soft as zinc. So, when it comes to deburring silver jewelry parts, you can use a more aggressive process.
A TVB (B) vibratory deburring machine is the perfect choice for you. Just make sure that you use the right media for silver jewelry tumbling.
Deburring aluminum parts is one of the most common tasks performed in the mass finishing industry. Machined aluminum often has machining marks all over the surface which needs to be smoothened.
So, you can go for centrifugal disc finishers or centrifugal barrel finishing machines. A simple vibratory tumbler would do the job as well. It’ll just take a little longer.
Deburring brass requires a higher level of precision than other metals. Gun barrels or bullet casings are often made with brass and require deburring.
A vibratory tumbler can do wonders for you in terms of brass deburring. Make sure to use specified media to deburr your brass parts. Stainless steel pins are the most popular choice.
It might sound unlikely, but rubber parts have to deburred as well. It’s not like the hard burrs on metal parts, but the appearance is quite the same.
Rubber parts are not very likely to lose their shape so you can use a centrifugal disc finishing machine for the fastest and best result.
Brass fittings are small parts that need accurate deburring. We can use a magnetic tumbler polishing machine to deburr them. Just see to it that not many materials are removed from the parts while deburring.
Whether for small scale production or big quantity mass production, we have the ready solution for you.
Stainless steel is one of the hardest metals. It requires a high-powered small part deburring machine to come out smoothly. Stamped parts are a little harder to deburr because you have the risk of ruining the stamping.
If you want to be on the absolutely safe side, you can go for the rotary barrel tumblers. But if you don’t have the time, you should settle for a vibratory finisher from Inovatec.
For fast deburring and finishing of small plain steel washer, you can use a centrifugal disc finishing machine or a vibratory finishing machine for big batches of parts for surface improvement. Also, you can add a vibratory dryer after the finishing process.
For aluminum milled parts, you can use the plastic tumbling media to remove the machining marks. This process does not change the parts’ surface geometry. In addition, it creates a surface ready for electroplating.

1. What is a Small Parts Deburring Machine?
Vibratory deburring machines are one of the most commonly used equipment in the mass finishing industry.
The machined or forged parts are often not smooth enough for further processing. It’s crucial to smoothen out the surface first.
That’s where a vibratory deburring machine comes into play.
These machines use the vibration from a motor to create friction between the media and the parts.
Media is a solid substance, often an abrasive one for the deburring process.
Start the machine and give it enough time, your parts will come out much smoother than before.
It’s a batch processing machine so you can deburr a lot of parts at once without losing valuable time on manual labor.
The vibration caused by the motor is known as a gyratory vibration.
2. What makes a small parts deburring machine?
There are a lot of intricate parts and components that go into making a deburring machine.
It can be either a vibratory machine, a rotary barrel finisher, or a centrifugal finisher.
Let’s look at the vibratory deburring machines first.
Its main part is the bowl. It’s called a vibratory bowl where you put the media and the parts.
There is a motor right below the bowl which causes the gyratory vibration.
The frequency of the vibration is controlled to have absolute control of the deburring.
On the other side of the spectrum, there are the rotary barrel tumblers.
These use an ancient principle of rotation, but the machines from Inovatec are modernized to be more efficient.
Unlike a vibratory finisher, rotary barrel tumblers have barrels.
Centrifugal finishers are the fastest. They utilize the fast centrifugal force to create immense friction.
There are chambers inside the machine that rotate on their independent axis.
The entire disc or barrel turns as well. As a result, you get a very fast and effective deburring scenario.
3. How do small parts deburring machine work?
As you already know, a deburring machine can be a vibratory, rotary, or centrifugal deburring machine.
The nature of any element is to wear down if it encounters any friction.
That’s exactly what happens in a deburring process.
Whichever machine you use to deburr your small parts, it’s going to create friction.
If you let the parts rub against each other, it’s certain that the parts will damage themselves. So, you need to use an intermediary solution, known as media.
You have to add media to a specific ratio with parts.
If your parts require wet tumbling, you have to add water to the mixture.
But if you’re going for dry deburring, you can skip the water part, which is very unlikely to happen.
Once the mixture is ready, you can start your machine.
The motors on all of the deburring machines are designed to create just the right amount of force.
Some machines even let you control the speed of the rotation or the vibration to give you absolute control.
For deburring, the media must be abrasive.
If there’s one media that suits almost all deburring tasks, that would be the ceramic deburring media.
Inovatec has a wide variety of ceramic deburring media.
You can choose the one that you need. If you’re not sure, you can contact our support team and they will guide you.
4. How do a small parts deburring machine distinct from other mass finishing machine types?
Actually, they don’t differ in a significant way.
Mass finishing machines are very versatile machines that can do a lot of mass finishing operations.
Deburring is just one of them. As for small parts deburring, you can do it on industrial machines as well.
So, if you already have one, you can utilize it.
But if you only deburr small metal parts and prefer convenience over volume, a desktop vibratory deburring machine might be a better choice for you.
In terms of the question itself, a small parts deburring machine is not different than other mass finishing machines.
5. What are some benefits of using small parts deburring machine?
You’ll see the regular benefits that you see from any other mass finishing machine.
Your parts will be smoother, stronger, and more durable.
Removing excess material is a very important step in the manufacturing process.
Visible burrs and imperfections are not ideal for surface treatment.
If you need to temper your parts, it’s mandatory that the heat cycles spread evenly across the surface.
But with burrs and inconsistencies, it’s not possible. As a result, you’ll be left with a weak and fragile part.
As for the machines, they are really efficient and fast in deburring.
You can deburr by hand as well, but it will take forever to hand deburr any metal parts.
In the meantime, you can deburr multiple batches of parts, hundreds in each one.
Machine deburring is way faster and more accurate than hand deburring.
You save a lot of money on labor costs and other operating costs. Your downtimes will reduce drastically thanks to the constant batch processing.
6. What is the industrial application of small parts deburring machine?
The possibilities are practically infinite. You can deburr anything on these machines.
The best part is, industrial machines are also suitable for small parts deburring.
It’s not always necessary to invest in a separate machine.
You can deburr anything including stainless steel, brass, plastic, wood, rubber and so on. Each deburring method will require significant tweaking in the process but the equipment remains the same.
Metals parts can be automotive stainless steel, magnesium wheels, crankshafts, aerospace engineering equipment, and so on.
You can deburr plastic parts with the help of dedicated media.
You can even deburr rubber in these machines.
If you invest in a smaller machine, the scale is going to be small, but the functionalities remain the same.
7. Are there home applications and usage of small parts deburring machine?
No, not really. These machines are designed for industrial usage.
They are economical only if you deburr parts in bulk.
It’s very unlikely that you’ll need to deburr a lot of parts in your home.
So, a small parts deburring machine is not an ideal choice for home-usage.
8. What type and shape of workpieces are a small parts deburring machine perfect for?
The beauty of mass finishing machines is that you can do anything with any kind of workpieces.
The inside of the machines is made of HD90 hot poured PU lining to protect it from all kinds of damages.
You have to be a little careful about what parts to choose for a certain machine.
Fragile parts are very likely to get damaged if deburred in a centrifugal machine.
On the other hand, if you put stainless steel parts in a rotary barrel tumbler, it’s going to take forever.
So, as long as you choose the right equipment and media for the process, you can achieve any result you want.
9. What are the most popular media type and their usages in small parts deburring machines?
The selection of media is probably the most important step of the entire deburring process.
The right type of media is very important for getting the best results possible.
Keep in mind that the media will wear down slowly with every cycle.
The most commonly used deburring is ceramic media.
Ceramic media is available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes.
It’s very aggressive and abrasive in nature. So, ceramic is the prime choice when it comes to small parts deburring.
If you’re deburring softer metals, it’s better to go with abrasive plastic media.
Plastic is a little less abrasive than ceramic but does a very nice job of deburring.
Choosing the right size and shape is also very important.
In general, smaller parts require small media while larger parts require large media. It might differ depending on your parts’ requirement.
10. How do I maintain the machines?
Maintenance is key to using the equipment for years to come.
It doesn’t take much from you.
Just follow the instruction manual that comes with the machine to understand basic maintenance.
If your machine is used constantly, you should grease the joints every 8 hours.
Keep an eye on the PU lining inside the bowl or barrel.
Do a routine check on the water drainage system. Don’t forget to clean the machine after each cycle.
