5. What are the functionalities of a Vibratory Wheel Polishing Machine?
Vibratory Wheel Polishing Machines enhance and fine-tune the surface quality of wheels.
Such surface refinement includes Polishing, deburring and descaling.
Deburring: This involves the removal of edges and burrs on wheels, which were left after machining. A typical example of deburring is leveling a sharp corner in a wheel, into a rounded corner.
Polishing: This involves the processing of a wheel to produce an enticing surface. To achieve such desired refinement, the appropriate media must be used.
6. Are Vibratory Wheel Polishing Machines industry-specific, application-wise?
