A top provider of production finishing services, Vibra Finish is a team of masters in making metal parts sustainable and aesthetically appealing. The company does not merely provide services and equipment; it also dedicates itself to developing innovative finishing methods. A prime example is Vibra-Peen Surfacing Technology, or “vibropeening”. Exclusive to Vibra Finish, this metallurgy technique results in tougher, harder metal surfaces.
Repeatable uniform compressive stresses
Vibropeening is a more thorough and satisfying method than nitriding, shot peening, and heat treating are. This technique of production finishing involves altering the mechanical properties of metal to make lighter, stronger components and products that are not as likely to fail or break. While other methods of surface treatment convert tensile stresses into surface compressive stresses and peen over surface cracks and imperfections, vibropeening reduces crack initiation and propagation by producing repeatable uniform compressive stresses.
One of the main benefits of vibropeening is that it reduces roughness in surface finishes. Traditional production finishing techniques leave rougher surfaces that can lead to cracks, which accumulate dirt that can cause corrosion damage. But Vibra-Peen Surfacing Technology results in smoother metal surfaces with less destructive friction and higher load-bearing ability.
Manufactured by Vibra Finish, the Vibra-Peen machine employs a unique dual-shaft configuration, operated by an innovative control system, which delivers the vibration into the chosen media in a controlled way. This process rarely breaks down, resulting in minimal maintenance required, and a warranty claim is typically unnecessary. The Vibra Finish crew can custom-design the vibropeening system to be more compatible to the customer’s individual needs and applications, altering the machine size to suit the size of the part.
For a finishing process that minimizes fatigue, failure, and cracking while improving load-bearing ability, trust vibropeening.
