SurfacePrep features a complete line of vibratory bowls and tubs. Bowls are a very versatile version of mass finishing machines.

Bowls are used for a variety of processes and applications including deburring, fine finishing, smoothing, burnishing, and edge break or radiusing.

Types of Vibratory Bowls:

  • Standard Bowls – Most common and economical type of bowl that is ideal for most deburring or radiusing processes.
  • Ball Burnishing Bowls – These are heavy duty bowls intended to turn heavy steel media and parts around to achieve bright, burnished finishes.
  • Batch or Flat Bottom Bowls – These systems are suited for larger parts that may not unload as well in a standard system.
  • Cob Dryers- The most common dryers used in mass finishing or vibratory tumbling processes are cob dry These units are essentially a vibratory finishing bowl with a heating element located in the base of the machine. The heated cob dryer provides a great means to dry and to some extent can slightly brighten or polish the workpiece.

Vibratory Tubs:
Tubs are a great consideration if your parts are larger or may not travel well through a bowl configuration. Tubs are available in a broad range of sizes. SurfacePrep offers entry level, small systems for those with a limited budget, all the way up to large tubs that can be developed to meet the most stringent processing requirements.
